READ THIS BEFORE TAKING A STATIN FOR CHOLESTEROL
Reviewed in the United States on June 11, 2018
I was recently hospitalized after taking a Statin, Lipitor, for elevated cholesterol. After many tests and a liver biopsy, it was determined that I suffered a major blow to my liver, which is a side effect my doctor never mentioned. Now, I started taking a more active role in understanding exactly what cholesterol does and after reading this book, realized, I actually do not need the statin drug which actually caused my liver enzymes to skyrocket and made me sick for months! I suggest reading this book BEFORE you blindly fill the Rx for a statin that your Dr will write as if on autopilot! Research and understand your medical conditions and make informed decisions. And opt for more natural remedies before putting these dangerous toxins called statins in your body! This book should be required reading for all doctors who feel compelled to just treat a lab number. And doctors should recommend patients read this book before opting for a medication to "fix" a number that may actually NOT need to be fixed!
