[IPk] Statins



Hi Di and Mohan

Thanks for the information about statins.  I am a bit behind in catching up 
with the messages from insulin pumpers and was just thinking about asking 
the question you asked Mohan.  I am in the same boat being nearly 47 and my 
cholestorol is usually quite low and was again when tested for my diabetic 
annual at my GPs clinic recently.  Last time I saw my Consultant he said I 
should be on statins because I am over 40, type 1 diabetics over 40 should 
be on statins and I should ask my GP to put them on my prescription.  I 
reluctantly ran it by my GP and his response was they would have no effect 
because my cholestorol was very low and it was pointless me being on them. 
That pleased me and glad to hear others have the same view that I have, if 
it aint broke, dont fix it.

It is great to hear Lisa that you no longer need statins.  We are told so 
often we are on medication for life so it is nice to hear someone who can 
stop taking some of their medication.
