Cholesterol Guidelines

New guidelines on who should be treated with cholesterol lowering drugs are now being questioned.

Some doctors say a new online risk calculator overestimates the risk of heart attack or stroke.

She’s here to tell us what patients need to know and do, amid all the controversy.

    Another doc who buys into the cholesterol-is-bad concept, when new studies are indicating that there is a lot less correlation between cholesterol and cardiovascular events, (esp. in older adults), and in fact, higher cholesterol may be beneficial. Inflammation is now being investigated as the real culprit. But I agree, you are what you eat. So, eat wisely and in moderation. And no, statins are not the harmless, safe drug Big Pharma wants you to believe.
