I am NOT getting on the statin bandwagon, and my endo for "me" sees no need for me to be on one, my cholesterol levels are all excellent. My BP is good. Also I refuse to take the Ace inhibitors too. I'm not taking something "just because". If I stat developing risk factors maybe I'll reconsider. But luckily my endo given my numbers and lack of risk factors isn't pushing it.
What are your lipids numbers? My LDL is way higher than my doc likes but I have refused a statin because my trigs and HDL are fine. I give some of my reasons here: Cholesterol, Fats, Carbs, Statins and Exercise

Sorry, it's too late to edit so try this one: Cholesterol, Fats, Carbs, Statins and Exercise
I should test those when I post them.
