Irresponsible Doctors??

Question: from Emily

I recently went to my dr. and had my bloodwork done.  My cholesterol was 237.  My triglycerides were 94, my HDL was68, and my LDL was 150. In your opinion do I need to take the 20mg of lovastatin a day that he has prescribed?

Answer: from Warren Matthews of Xtend-Life

I think that your Doctor has been brainwashed by the drug company reps. It is in my opinion irresponsible to propose you take a statin drug with this figures.

Firstly, high cholesterol is only a danger when it is combined with HIGH triglycerides… yours are not.

Next, your Doc has only looked at your TOTAL cholesterol and seems to have ignored that your HDL is 68.

This is incomprehensible!

He would have made this recommendation based on the cholesterol council of America.

Bear in mind that this council is controlled by the statin drug manufacturers would like to have everyone on a statin drug which is why they have a blanket recommendation based on total cholesterol only without consideration to the ratios or triglyceride levels.

It is immoral what the ‘cholesterol council’ are doing and it is about time that Doctors wake up to it. Prescribing people a statin with your figures will only have a negative impact on their overall health.

I wouldn’t even recommend our Cholest-Natural product with your figures even though it is perfectly safe and does not have the risks that a statin drug has.  But, you would be better applying your money to either Total Balance or Omega 3 for your general health.
