Just had my bloodwork done and it was not good, but with possibly bad genes and being overweight (5'10 and 220) with ver little exercise, I was not suprised:
Total cholesterol: 254, HDL: 31, LDL: 160 TRIG: 315
Doctor wants to put me immediately on 20 mg a day of Crestor, but I am reading horror stories about it. Funny he didn't say let's try and get the weight off. I am thinking about just seeing if a 50 pound weight loss would help before commiting to drugs. However I know Crestor will take it down fast. But I am afraid of the side effects.
