My son has been prescribed blood thinning medication (Clopidogrel) and statins following an apparent stroke (silent one in his sleep), just awoke one morning to find a problem with his eyesight. His cholesterol wasn't high at the time (4.5 - 5) but apparently statins are included as a blanket treatment. His cholesterol very quickly reduced to a total of 2.9 (HDL 1.2; LDL 1.2) and I feel concerned at how low this is, knowing that we all need cholesterol in our bodies. Am also concerned as I've read that having too low a cholesterol can lead to a brain heamorrhage.
I would be grateful to hear for any replies, please.
