I'm 42, always exercised a good deal ie most days, always had a good diet ( even better now following heart uk advice) and never overweight. Never smoked.
Diagnosed with likely FH 2 years ago. Total chol 8.6 but with a LDL/HDL ratio of 5.6/2.3.
Prescribed simvastatin 40mg and now atorvostatin 10mg. Last test chol 4.8 LDL/HDL ratio even better LDL up to 2.4
for past 6 weeks I've had interrupted sleep every night. I'm sure it is statin related.
I want to come off statins but GP reluctant to refer me to lipid clinic for second opinion or further tests. I'm scared to come off and my wife is very reluctant for me to do so. Any advice? Experience of no statins or how to get to lipid clinic welcome. Can I go private even?
