Dangers of Statin Drugs: What You Haven’t Been Told About Popular Cholesterol-Lowering Medicines
If you have to take statins, but you’re experiencing statin side effects—you may want to try this.
0:00 Statins and cholesterol
0:10 How statins work
0:25 Cholesterol functions
0:45 Statin side effects
2:35 What you could do
Today, we’re going to talk about statins and statin side effects. Statins work by blocking a certain enzyme that blocks your production of cholesterol. Your liver cells make a good amount of cholesterol in your body. The cholesterol in your body is not just coming from the diet. It’s also coming from your own cells.
Cholesterol is a precursor for making bile salts. Bile salts are involved in digesting fats and absorbing fat-soluble vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids. If you don’t have enough bile salts, your risk for gallstones goes up as well as the risk of pancreatitis.
A big side effect of statins is myopathy. This is a general term for muscle disease. Another side effect is high levels of creatine kinase, which can indicate muscle wasting. Statins can also deplete CoQ10, which is an enzyme involved in giving your muscles energy.
If you’re deficient in CoQ10, you could experience:
• Muscle wasting
• Muscle weakness
• Lower back pain
• Heart failure
• And more…
Taking CoQ10 while taking statins could help diminish the symptoms of myopathy.
