Is anyone taking statins and if so what statin are you taking? What statins are more kidney friendly compared to others? I have stage 3 ckd and doctor ordered me a high intensity statin but he did not seem to be concerned about kidney function. But in his defense an MRA showed that I have progressive stenosis in large artery in my brain. I am on vacation so elected not to go on this statin until I return home and see my primary physician in a week. Needless to say I am shocked and scared! Any advice would be much appreciated! Thank you!
