Last year my doc wanted me on a statin drug to lower cholesterol, but since my cholesterol was only 204, I refused. The HDL was high enough, I thought, to counteract those 4 little points over 200. What do I know? I'm not a doctor and I don't play one on TV, but I just hate taking medicines. Last week I had my blood work done again and the cholesterol was 209 and once again, his office called and said he wanted me on a drug for that! I finally said, "OK"! I am a diabetic, so I agreed to do it. All the bloodwork was good except those 9 little points. CRAP!
