... "message" from tests?
Atorvastatin - I tried this statin once before--stopped it because I had not fully gotten the?
Added 27 Oct 2014:
...cut to the chase:
My recent calcium score of 219, all in the LAD, prompted me to get serious about reversing/treating my apparent beginnings of heart disease, at age 59. High familial lipid history with one early heart attack in my father.
Plus, though I am very active, I have noticed that I have not the stamina I had just a couple of years ago.
I started atorvastatin, which I have read is one of the quickest acting drugs against the soft plaques that are the real danger, over and above the hard plaque that show up in a CT scan.
Have also changed my diet pretty radically.
Question: Is it possible that the atovarstatin 40mg could actually start reversing the soft plaque build up so fast--two weeks or so--that I can actually feel myself feeling stronger...like I can do more and exert more strenuously that I felt I could just a couple of weeks ago?
Am I just imagining this?
