Daily Mail today dailymail.com/health/articl... statins DO save lives.
So who do you believe? My latest blood test taken in January (not a good time to have it done) was as follows: serum cholesterol 9, serum triglycerides 1.1, serum HDL 1.39, serum cholesterol HDL ration 6.5, non HDL cholesterol 7.6
This is after a toe infection, a kidney infection and a virus type flu infection plus succumbing to Christmas cake and mince pies! I have in the past reduced my cholesterol by more exercise, avoiding cake/bread/sugar etc and eating more salad with olive oil but I do find it difficult to stick to these diets plus at the age of 71, exercise becomes more difficult than when I was younger. So do I give in and take statins or try the diet again?
