statin works
Would this help the  statin doubters?

I stopped Crestor for 33 days. my lipids were:
TC             139
HDL             35
TRG           126
LDL/HDL         2.3
GLU              88

Now they are:
TC              211
HDL              29  
TRG            164
LDL/HDL         5  
GLU              96  

I did not relax my strict Mediterrean diet nor hard daily exercise.  Now I  take the side of statins in the on-going controversy  on whether they do any good or not. I'm 84, one stent RCA, May 2010
(I dropped Crestor to see if i twas the cause of my two-year bout of night sweats. I still have them.)

Wow, this is a great illustration. I tried getting off Simvastatin at my doctor's request after losing considerable weight and having low total cholesterol and had the same results as you after six months. Needles to say, back on the Simvastatin. Not every one is the same, but that was my experience as well.
