... 243. My doc had changed by statin prescription from 80mg of Lipitor to 20mg of simvistatin. After 30 days by total chol had reduced to 184, HDL to 65 from 73, LDL to 80 from 157, VLDL to 30 from 13 and Trig to 149 to 64. So overall my cholesterol level is good but the other numbers have moved in large ways. Are this a problem and what is happening?
