Hi there.
Obviously you have to cu down on the statins if you can't tolerate them.
Here is what I wwould advise:
1) Get a proper diet chart made according to your age and weight.
2) Take fish and fish oil supplements every day.
3) Cook your food in extra virgin olive oil
4) Include Sesame oil in your diet.
5) last but not the least. ... a proper exercise schedule which should be strictly followed.
Good luck.
