I recently saw one of the doctors at my group practice, & she said that she could`nt understand why I`d been prescribed statins when I don`t have any other risk factors for heart disease. The trouble with group practises is that you rarely see the same doctor twice, & they each have a different opinion as to how to treat a condition. She said my slightly sluggish thyroid gland could be causing my raised cholesteral, & has sent me for yet another blood test. I`m getting quite confused about the whole thing.
