The cholesterol lowering drug doctors prescribe, often unnecessary for financial gains.
What are statins, and what do they do to the patients consuming them
They are a class of drugs that lower the level of cholesterol in the blood. This is achieved by reducing the production of cholesterol by the liver. They block the enzyme in the liver responsible for making cholesterol. Medically, they are referred to as HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors.
Cholesterol is essential to the normal functioning of every cell in the body.
Is it necessary to lower it? What happen when you lower it? Why must you lower it?
These are pertinent questions that need convincing answers!
Remember, your doctors don`t have all the answers. Should they have the answers where did they get that information. From the sales reps of the big Pharmaceutical companies ..of course.
Can you trust them? These big multinational drug companies? These Hugh, Powerful and Influential corporations?
Yes, we often hear that high cholesterol will lead to the build-up of plaque and when this happens, heart attacks and strokes will take place. These are all sweeping statements.
Not all these cases ended up with heart attack or stroke. In fact studies compiled in the last few years concluded that only 50% coronary deaths were caused by high cholesterol.
Truth About High Cholesterol And Statins
Another sweeping statement is that high cholesterol can also cause the development of atherosclerosis. This is a condition in which cholesterol-containing plaques form within the arteries. These block the arteries and reduce the flow of blood to the tissues.
When plaques rupture, a blood clot forms, further blocking the artery and reducing the flow of blood. When blood flow is reduced sufficiently in the arteries that supply blood to the heart, the result is, pain in the chest or more severely a heart attack.
If the clot is in the brain, the result is a stroke. If the clots occur in the leg, they cause pain in the legs while walking. This condition is known as intermittent claudication.
When are they used?
They are used for preventing and treating atherosclerosis thatcauses chest pain, heart attacks, strokes. As the last statement showed that only 50% death were the result of high cholesterol. What about the other 50%. If they were treated with Statins were they not just victims of the drugs?
What are the risk and side effects when using them for treating atherosclerosis?
The most serious are liver failure and rhabdomyolysis.
Rhabdomyolysis is a serious side effect in which there is seriousdamage to the muscles. Rhabdomyolysis begins as muscle pain and can progress to loss of muscle cells, kidney failure, and even death. It occurs more often when they are used in combination with other drugs. They must not be used during pregnancy because of the risk of serious adverse effects to the developing fetus
