Just got my blood work results from Kaiser. Appears that the Crestor twice weekly is helping to lower it some. I emailed my doctor to make sure he wants me to continue taking it and if he wants to change the dosage. He usually gets back to me in a day or so. Even though my numbers are still higher than what they should be, they are better. My total cholesterol is 242 (down 106 points), My HDL (good) is 53 (up 1 point) and my LDL (bad) is 189 (down 107 points).
