Hi all,This is a first for me on this forum. I just have a couple of questions I'd like to ask.
Firstly,3mths ago I had a blood test that revealed that my cholesterol was 7 and due to having a heart attack 6yrs ago my GP advised me to go on statins,but because I'm on such a lot of other meds I didn't really want anymore. She suggested I try Avastatin for 3mths to see how I got on with it,but once on statins you can't come off.
Secondly, After 3mths I had another blood test which revealed my cholesterol at 5. But I'm told once on you have to stay on them.
WHY.? Why can't you come off them and start to control it with food? I really don't want to be on all this medication,some are a matter of life or death,but I've been put on no end of meds that I'm now struggling to get off.
Anyone got any answers?
