Cholesterol Concerns!

Posted by ericksonchiro on April 7, 2010 at 1:00 PM

A couple of recent studies have demonstrated some concerns when trying to control cholesterol levels. We need both HDL and LDL cholesterol in our bodies it is essential to human life. It is found in all cell membranes and forms many of the chemical messengers(hormones) that are utilized by our bodies. In general high cholesterol does not cause symptoms and has become a drug that is easily prescribed with little to no concern for actual need. In fact some pharmaceutical companies have proposed the prescribing of these drugs to people who have no cardiovascular risk factors. This is a deeply disturbing. These drugs are not without safety concerns. Some cause conditions that lead to kidney failure and eventual death. In a new study that compared the drug Zetia to Naispan (basically a form on niacin which is a B vitamin). demonstrated that Naispan was better at reducing LDL, increasing HDL, and reducing future cardiovascular risk. In fact the research actually showed that Zetia increased future risk of cardiovascular events. Another review study in the journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) showed that there was little consensus amongst medical professionals for what an appropriate level of cholesterol is. The studies that were reviewed also demonstrated considerable amounts of "Industry Bias". Essentially meaning that those running the studies were representatives of the various drug companies. Make sure you explore all of your options when it comes to high cholesterol and make sure you make changes under the direction of a qualified professional.
