take your meds

I've found out that for me the only way to control my cholesterol levels is to take my meds. I am genetically predisposed to high levels and even though diet and exercise help I STILL NEED THE MEDS

You hit it on the head, high cholesterol with a genetic predisposal can only be controlled with meds. It's unfortunate, but a reality.

However, there are those that will post and say cholesterol is not a bad thing, even though every piece of evidence points to the contrary. Some people are jus not able to see past their personal beliefs and see the entire picture.

Statins can only help, but if you have issues see your doctor.

If you need statins in your life to manage your cholesterol, by all means do whatever it takes to protect your heart health.

As Bobby suggests, it is an easy sell as it makes so much sense that it's a no brainer, take the statins and stay healthy, thanks for the support Bobby!
