Hi , I’ve been reading some negative articles about statins and wonder if they could have some effect on ataxia.has anyone got any thoughts about this?
Thanks Anna

I have refused statins as they do affect muscles. In fact I have read [in articles about vitamins and minerals] that CoQ10 supplements are recommended for people who take statins. CoQ10 is produced by the body but is depleted by statins. [apparently]

I just try to keep Cholesterol down with exercise and diet. Our GP surgery doesnt seem to bother with regular testing but then our surgery just bother about anything LOL

Hi Anna, my mom had high cholesterol, it run's in her family. Her dad died of heart problems related to his high cholesterol at a young age. Mum refused statins, she ask her Dr if she could take RyChol it's natural and it worked for her. Her Dr said a lot of her patients were taking it with good results.

Thank you Linda . I’ll check it out Annax
