@DaDoc Good luck at the Dr., Doc. My research showed me what happened to @Derek S former boss. Statin's make your blood work look better, but do absolutely nothing to prolong life. The most glowing researched showed a possible length of life by 7 months. But, you have the possible side effects of liver damage and others. that's why I'll never take them. Again, this is my own opinion, from my own research, as a smart person, but non-medical professional. Lifestyle is the key. Genetics plays a role.
