I have been trying different drugs on my Drs advice. I have had Tricor, Zocor, and another which I cant remember the name. I finally settled on Crestor. This one seemed to be the most tolerant with my body. All the others gave me SEVERE muscle cramps.
When I started Crestor my Cholesterol levels were 24 good and 311 bad Triglyceride level 758. Since taking Crestor now for about 6 months my most recent test results were terrible. my good is 26 my bad is 594 along with a triglyceride count of 2494. For more good news today after reading the results of the test he informed me that my blood pressure is very high. I dont really understand the numbers but he said the "low" number is high. It has been ranging between 94 and 97 with the high number normal. He prescribed me a blood pressure med that I havent filled yet. I cant tell you what it is because I cant read his writing.
Still not done yet.......... my blood glucose is 125. He told me that if it was 126 i would be a diabetic. It seems like I am falliing apart at the ripe old age of 41. I dont even think I saw a Dr in my life until just a couple of years ago. I have to also do another 2 hr sugar test. The last one in May said I was borderline diabetic. He said Im a little closer to borderline now and another test will be done next week. He referred me to another doctor who is supposed to be better solving cholestorol issues. I dont know what to do.
I dont really feel bad, a little tired more than usual but now there is an impending heart attack right around the corner (or so it seems) I even tried to get into a trial for high cholesterol last week and they rejected me saying my triglyceride level was quote "dangerous" Im pretty scared mostly for my family and grandchildren who need me to get a good start in life. I am 6ft 240 lbs. Im sure my fitness is contributing but I am also sure that there are people in worse condition than me who do not have issues like I have.
Can I have some advice please?
