My husband has kindly passed on the FH to our daughter (son is fine..) and we saw the lipid specialist at Barts at the beginning of May.
She also has low thyroid and we are seeing the endocrinologist also at Barts, next week.
So we received the letter from the Cholesterol doc and she is suggesting that my 18 year old is started on Atorvostatin 20mg increasing to 40mg in a month; which I think is a bit hefty, especially as she doesn’t have a follow up until January.
My husband suffers with a lot of side effects and can only tolerate Rosuvastatin... he refused to take the tablets for years until he had a TIA at 55.
I don’t know if anyone has any experience or advice... I am currently waiting until after we’ve seen the Endo as I know the two are linked to see if an increase in her thyroxine will bring the Cholesterol down first.
What do you think?
