Amy's 50th Birthday Surprise: High Cholesterol
Being diagnosed with high cholesterol can be an emotional experience. The first thought is often: 'What can I do to fix this?' What lifestyle changes can I make? How do I get myself back on track?
The truth is, that sometimes making changes to your diet and exercise, even if they are drastic, aren’t always enough, and medication is required. In this case, the first medication you will likely be prescribed is a statin.
Choosing A Statin
Choosing the right statin for you can be a challenging task. There are a lot of factors that go into deciding what statin is right for you.
There’s also a lot of negative press about statins in today’s world. Dr. Google is not always the best place to go or give the best advice. The best person to ask is your healthcare provider.
They can guide you through the process, discuss your concerns, and choose a statin that fits your lifestyle and family history.
