Too many poor patients were been given of cholesterol medicine. The famous cholesterol medicine now is called Statins and it costs P25 – P100 per pill. Statins are known as Simvastatin, Atorvastatin, and others.
If your wage is P250 a day, how can you still buy the medicine like that? I am not saying statins is effective. In fact, they clean our roots. But usually, the patient immediately receives statins even if it is not yet necessary.
Can you easily drink statins?
According to the National Cholesterol Education Program of America, the Statins is given when cholesterol is over 240 mg/dl and if the patient has no diabetes or heart disease, remember the cholesterol should be over 240. If your cholesterol is not yet 240, you can change your diet first as a way of lowering your cholesterol.
Oftentimes, there are few doctors who easily give statins to patients even if their cholesterol is only 210. Of course, it is okay for the patients who can really afford it especially those who are rich enough to buy it.
