Do you think this study is accurate? Why or why not?

Some people are synthesizers of cholesterol, and others are absorbers. These factors can help tailor a cholesterol-lowering regimen in order to minimize cardiovascular risk. This information can be easily tested for and has been available for years, but seems to have been forgotten or ignored.

The side-effects have been far too frequently brushed aside - muscle pain and more. What works for some is harmful to others. Blanket use of statins needs to stop in favour of more carefully informed and moderated use.

They don't work for me at all. Took 40mg of them every day for years. My cholesterol didn't change at all.

Statins have terrible long-term consequences. The whole cholesterol scare is bogus.

And that's why doctors do regular blood tests to determine the effectiveness of the prescribed drug for the individual. I don't think it's responsible to frighten people about this when the drug could be,in fact effective. Just saying.

Statins don’t work, it results in muscular aches and cause discomfort. It’s ability to reduce cholesterol is doubtful.

Low dose statins reduced my high cholesterol after diet alone did not. I am not overweight and I exercise, eat healthy and sometimes diet alone does not help.

They also don't address the massive side effects of statin drugs. They can permanently damage your muscles, among other things. So if you are having a lot of muscle pain and cramping with them, talk to your doctor about another option. This was only supposed to be with 1-2% of users, but appears to be much higher. Now some of my doctors are very against them, while others keep pushing them. There are other changes and options to try.

They didn't not work for me. Did anybody experience aching joints after taking them?
