Suggest treatment for pelvic floor dysfunction
Welcome and thanks for your query.
I understand your concern.
Your symptoms are due to an adverse reaction to the statin.
Have you tried a different statin ? If not you could try and see if that also produces the same symptoms.
If you can upload your clinical details including the medical conditions, medicines and the latest lab results, I could also opine whether there is any alternative to statin for your condition.
Do get back to me with your input.Brief Answer:
Thanks for the input
Please let me know your medical conditions , medicines and the latest results so that I can give my opinion as to whether statins are absolutely essential for you or if there is any other alternative.
Sorry for the delay in replying.
As you observed, if your total cholesterol is only 180 mg , then the risk of reducing the statin dose may not raise your risk very significantly. Since you consider the quality of life very important and more important than the longevity itself, you could try reducing the dose of the statin and see if it improves your symptoms.
I would be interested in knowing the outcome of the consultations and the tests you would be taking in the near future.
Yes, quality of life is more important than a long, miserable life.
Discontinuing statin may not up your risk very much.
Let us wait for a couple of months and recheck the lipids to see what the risk is like.
Wish you good health and a great day.
