Question: Should I go on a Stain? I have always had borderline numbers and in February of 2015 was diagnosed with a fatty liver. At that time my numbers were as follows:
Cholesterol 180
Triglycerides 186
HDL Cholesterol 46
LDL Cholesterol 97
VLD Cholesterol 37
Cholesterol/HDL Ratio 3.9
Body Weight 258
At my yearly checkup in February 2016 my numbers were as follows:
Cholesterol 172
Triglycerides 96
HDL Cholesterol 48
LDL Cholesterol 105
Non HDL Cholesterol 124
Body Weight 224
At my yearly checkup in February of 2017 I was given another ultrasound to check my fatty liver. Findings: The liver is unremarkable. No evidence for fatty infiltration. No focal hepatic lesions. My Cholesterol numbers were as follows:
Cholesterol 161
Triglycerides 82
HDL Cholesterol 46
LDL Cholesterol 99
Non HDL Cholesterol 115
Body Weight 190
I have completely changed my eating habits and lifestyle since my fatty liver diagnoses. I walk one hour every day and always eat healthy foods. I’m very pleased with the weight reduction I have experienced, but the Cholesterol numbers have me concerned. Your thoughts would be appreciated.

I’m currently taking Lisinopril-hydrochlorothiazide (PRINZIDE,ZESTORETIC) 10-12.5 MG per tablet per day, Atenolol (TENORMIN) 100 MG tablet per day, 81 MG Asprin per day. The following are additional items listed on my yearly checkup report for 2015,2016,2017:
2015 2016 2017
Sodium 136 142 144
Potassium 3.9 4.7 5.0
Chloride 101 105 106
Carbon Dioxide 31 30 32
Anion Gap 4 7 6
Glucose 94 91 96
Urea Nitrogen 14 17 20

Alt 29 24
AST 11 17
BP 120/82 Pulse 70 124/70 Pulse 68 122/64 Pulse 64

I often take my BP at my local food market/pharmacy and have noted that my BP if taken within an after my hour walk is usually lower. The Systolic will be as low as 99 and the Diastolic will as low as 58 with a pulse of 56.
I’m very skeptic of taking a Statin because of all of the possible negative side effects which I have heard about. Your opinion would be greatly appreciated.

For the past 4 days, my blood pressure has been running anywhere from 130/95 to 120/102. My blood pressure is usually normal (typically 120/78 or so). I have high cholesterol and a family history of heart disease & am 51. What I don t understand is the numbers being close together. My last reading was 119/102.

I am a 62-year old healthy female who takes Pravastatin. My cholesterol level was 249 before being put on that drug, and I have no other health issues--not overweight, no hypertension, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, etc. Get plenty of exercise, have a good diet of protein and not many carbs or surgar. Triglycerides, etc. are fine, and my total cholesterol has dropped to 150 while on the drug. Recently a routine blood test revealed that my blood glucose level had risen to 104 after being 94 a year ago. Could this be due to the Pravastatin, and is there anything I should do?
