Can someone explain this. Familial Hypercholesterolemia.
I am very confused.After finding this website and realising that most of my Moms health issues may be from the statin she is on. I talked to the doctor and he agreed for her to leave it of for two months.and then have a blood test. Well she did and the blood test has just come back.
HDL 1.8 non HDL 5.5 Triglycerides 1.6 Ratio 7.3
He said she should go back on Lipitor as her cholesterol has always been about 5, but after hearing Dr Mercola say that the only people that should take statins are those with Familial Hypercholesterolemia. How do I ask to get this from a blood test.What do I ask for. I know my Mom has been on statins for 30 years and she is 87, but how i read about drug companies making money, and not for the good of the patient. I really don't
know what to advise my Mom to do.
By the way I started her on Ubiquinon 100 mg twice a day.
