Levels for T1

Recommended Posts

Calexander57

Hello, 

I just got a blood test back and it shows my Cholesterol is normal. My doc says I need to be on meds as a preventive. Is that a good idea as a T1? My LDL was 109 mg/dl and HDL was 62 mg/dl.

I'd steer clear away from cholesterol meds.  

When the horrific side effects begin , doctors dont seem to want to accept its from the statins .

Your LDL is slightly above but that could be temporary.

IMHO you need a new Doctor. It's a terrible idea and borderline malpractice to prescribe medication for a condition you don't even have.
