My Osteopath does NOT want me to take statins because of the side effects from these types of drugs...I am 71 and in excellent health.
Instead she asked me to take Non Flush Niacin ( a B vitamin ) The Niacin I take which is extremely successful and has no side effects is Inositol Hexaniacinate
She started me on 500mg daily and after 3 weeks and NO side effects at all she slowly increased the dosage Within a 2 month period, my cholesterol dropped from 252 down to 200 with the HDL ( good cholesterol being very high -which is desirable) and the LDL ( bad cholesterol being very low ( which is where we want it.)
I would recommend to many of you who commented here, to see an osteopath or holistic physician for your health care....they are much less likely to prescribe expensive drugs which may have serious side effects...They are more conservative and will start with remedies which will not injure us or our liver...I also take red rice yeast which is also a cholesterol lowering product..., exercise moderately , am active, and eat a normal diet without excess saturated fats and meats...
I don't put a lot of drugs into my system......I take one small aspirin daily which she recommended because there is a high history of heart disease and strokes in my family....
My blood work is always excellent ...she tests for me every 6 months and keeps an eye on it...
