Could I have your help again please. After finding this website 2 months ago, i realized that statins can cause muscle damage and memory loss ( what my Mom has )
After talking to the doctor, i asked him if my Mom could stop Lipitor, she is still on Ezetrol, been on both for 30 years, and after six weeks have a blood test to check her cholesterol levels.
I stopped the Lipitor and started Mom on Ubiquinol 100 mg twice daily ( only found out about this from this website ).
So my question is this ? When Mom has a blood test done at the doctors, it is then sent to the hospital, do i ask the doctor for a print out of the blood results or does he have to request this from the hospital. Apart from LDL and HDL in a blood test is Triglycerides and Thyroid in there to, or do i have to specifically ask for these.
Also has the blood test got to be fasting.
Thank you in advance for enlightening my mind.
