One thing I don’t do is to replace your doctor! I help explain confusing opinions, as well as a host of other things, but am not a free clinic. Your pains were unlikely to be related to your heart. There are lots of reasons for chest pain other than cardiac:
Talk to your doctor about your high cholesterol, best treated with a combination of diet & exercise initially.
If that doesn’t work, you need medications:
Cholesterol-Lowering Drugs
Various medications can lower blood cholesterol levels.
They include :
• Statins (also known as HMG CoA reductase inhibitors)
This class of drugs works in the liver to prevent the formation of cholesterol. Statins are most effective at lowering the LDL (bad) cholesterol, but also have modest effects on lowering triglycerides (blood fats) and raising HDL (good) cholesterol.
• Selective cholesterol absorption inhibitors
This class of cholesterol-lowering medications works by preventing the absorption of cholesterol from the intestine.
Resins (also known as bile acid sequestrant or bile acid-binding drugs)
This class of LDL-lowering drugs works in the intestines by promoting increased disposal of cholesterol.
• Fibrates (fibric acid derivatives)
Fibrates are best at lowering triglycerides and in some cases increasing HDL (good cholesterol) levels.
• Niacin (nicotinic acid)
Hope this helps,
Dr T
