If you have high cholesterol, your doctor may have prescribed a stantin for you.  Stanins block a liver enzyme that helps create cholesterol.  For many people, they are very effective in lowering that LDL number .  But, according to Dr. Arthur Agatston, a preventative cardiologist, stantins alone don’t protect you from a heart attack.  That is because LDL is a factor in heart attacks, but not the only risk.  Genetics and lifestyle also affect cardiac health.  

Whether stantins are as effective for women as they are for men is controversial.  Most studies are done on men.  Be sure to research any drug that your physician recommends.  Ask your pharmacist.  That’s their job and they are a great reference.  Also, research articles from the homepage of MYCity.MD.

Positive behavioral changes you can make are to stop smoking, exercise, or clean eating to affect blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes and get to know your families medical history to know the red flags.

Here is a great quote:

"Nurture your dreams...discover your pasion, embrace your vision, free your spirit, share your love, love your soul.
