Health Update [Feb. 2nd, 2011|11:40 am]
Tony Grist
I went for a follow-up meeting with the practice nurse. My bloods are fine, my blood pressure is fine too.  I asked about statins- and she told me the statins I'm taking are different from the over-the-counter statins the experts were rubbishing on the TV news- so we agreed I'd keep on taking them.

Glad to hear of your good news.

My farther reacted badly when they put him on statins. There were sever muscle aches, fatigue; he was generally miserable and was well aware of the fact. They changed varieties and he's fine now. If his experience was typical, I think you would know whether there was cause for concern.

These statins are supposed to be protecting me against high blood pressure. British doctors prescribe them for anyone over a certain age who has raised cholestrol levels.

Yes, sounds like what they have my father on, now.
