    Steroid and cholesterol

    So I have been off juice for 3 months. Went for blood work and my cholesterol is high around 6. Doc wants me on Crestor. What should I do? I don't like statins.
    Statins lower your sex drive cuz they lower cholesterol. Plus I heard they have some pretty awful sides.
    I'm type 2 diabetic. Was thinking of juicing again but with this high cholesterol crap I don't know.

    Well my doc says my diet doesn't matter. I need the statins to bring it down.

    Sounds like you have made up your mind then? I have family members that run lipitor and have no sides with it

    No, I am still not doing it.
    Just wondering if I can bring it down without statins. Or is it something that only a statin can remove the plaque?

    you might be surprised what diet can do. Really really high cholesteral runs in my family and my nutrition keeps mine in an excellent range. Unfortunately we would need someone else to chime in about statins as I know nothing about that

    Whats your LDL and HDL values?

    There is evidence that diet can in fact change cholesterol values, maybe a surprise to you type 2diebetes has also been reversed by diet specially if caught in beggining.

    At the end of the day you are what you eat.

    OP shouldnt believe everything he hears. Sides with Statins tend to surface when you're dosed too high which a lot of Docs can do unfortunately. I'm on 5 mgs Crestor, 3 days per week (for over 3 years) & my lipids/boners are fine. Some people just need to be on it. If your Doc is stating you need it, then your history of BW values over-time should validate his concern. If you think about it, it's rather silly to freak-out over the need for a Statin when you're already self administering UG AS without any medical supervision to speak of...

    Ok if I were to take a statin and then started to juice. Would there be any interaction? Would sides be worse or would the statin even work?

    See above. Sides start at higher than needed doses. I'm on TRT and have been using Crestor over 3 years...
