    Dear All,

    My latest results are in and everything bar the cholesterol was in the 'green' zone.

    I stopped taking the statin a few months ago due to problems it was causing me and the reading for the Cholesterol was 6.4 - is this something I should be concerned about or is it OK - admittedly as I did not need to see the doctor I am guessing it is OK but the nurse did not really give me any real info and now I am wondering...........

    Thank you in advance for any information you can give.

    What was your cholesterol breakdown? The total cholesterol is meaningless without those details.

    I will post full breakdown once home and then await any input. Thank you for letting me know there is not enough information.
