The dangers of stopping cholesterol medication
 
02:54
Fifty-six million Americans fall under the guidelines to take a statin to reduce cholesterol, but a new study says only about half take them. Many start the medication, but abandon it after two years. The study highlights the dangers of ending statin therapy, including heart attacks and death. Dr. Tara Narula joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss why people stop taking the medicine, the risks of abandoning the medication and misconceptions associated with the drug.

The study showing danger in stopping statins was on patients post strokes. Here are the other 2 videos in my series on STOPPING STATINS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnqOTNCLmnI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prQkwf6uCvQ Plaque instability is systemic; there is no such thing as one vulnerable plaque. The VULNERABLE PLAQUE THEORY is rapidly dying. Therefore the patients in the post-stroke study selected for patients with an arterial tree full on unstable plaque. The study showing safety selected for patients with stable plaques. Plaque instability appears to be a cyclical phenomenon, with cycles taking many months. So I would love to see a 2 year follow-up on the study showing safety in stopping plaques. I bet it would show regression to the mean.

Two studies are mentioned: one saying that it's safe to stop statins, and another says it's not. Although these studies, like all studies, have problems. But I think they both reflect biologic medical realities.

Side Effects of Taking Statins
 
03:36
About 20% of adults over 45 are taking a statin medication. But should they be...and are they all benefitting from it? We talked to an expert to find out, and we're bringing you the bottom line on what everybody should know about taking statin medications. Hi, I'm Pilar Gerasimo with a Bottom Line Expert report on some of the dangerous side effects associated with a class of cholesterol-lowering drugs known as statins. I'm here with Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum, the director of Women's Heart Health at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. I've heard that statins have been described by some experts as the most dangerous drug on the market. I've heard also that about one in four adults over 45 are currently taking them. So it strikes me that there must be some either very underpublicized risks associated with statins...or we're just not getting the whole story. Every medication has a risk and a benefit. If the risks or side effects outweigh the benefits, that makes the drug dangerous. There have been a lot of people who do not need statins who have been given them, and that makes this drug dangerous for those people. What are some of the side effects associated with statins? One of the most common side effects is muscle aches or body aches, joint pain, oftentimes people feel them in their legs. Some other side effects are elevated liver tests, which could be a problem, but once the statins are stopped, usually those enzymes or liver tests come down. There could be kidney abnormalities if doses of statins are too high. Some people describe fog brain, really sort of this inability to think, and again, when the statin is stopped, these symptoms go away. But those are the most common things we see in people taking statins. What about the special risks for women taking statins? I've heard that particularly with healthy women, taking statins can increase their risk for diabetes. I'm glad you asked that question, because the headline said "Statins Lead to Diabetes in Women," but in that particular study, it looked at women who were at risk for diabetes in the first place. They were given statins, and over time, their diabetes developed. Healthy women shouldn't be taking statins in the first place, but if they are, they're not at risk for diabetes. Wasn't there also a recent study that showed there are actually more people being harmed by taking statins unnecessarily than people without preexisting conditions that were being saved by them? I mean, are millions of people just wasting their money and increasing their risk at the same time? There are many people taking statins who really don't need to be on them, but we know for sure that for people who have had a heart attack or heart disease or stents, statins are lifesaving. If you're at intermediate risk for heart disease and have risk factors—high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking, family history, sedentary lifestyle, stress—and you fit into this category, then a statin should be considered. Short of that, it's not for you. The bottom line on statins—they're not right for everyone, particularly if you don't have more than one risk factor. And they can carry some pretty serious side effects. So to be on the safe side, it's best to check with your doctor and make sure that statins are right for you.

Side Effects Of Cholesterol Medicine
 
03:10
Hi! I'm robo-Suzie and today I'll talk to you about Side Effects Of Cholesterol Medicine. Also don't forget to subscribe for more tips in the future! But back to our topic. Any prescription medication can have side effects. Most of these are not pleasant. The reasoning of why we put up with these side effects is that it is better to deal with them than the condition which the medication treats - in this case, elevated cholesterol levels. Such drugs work to lower cholesterol which, in turn, reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. There are two popular classes of drugs used to treat high cholesterol. They are specifically aimed at lowering LDL cholesterol. One is the group known as statins and the others are bile acid sequestrants.The most well known of the latter group is Niacin (nicotinic acid) which comes in both prescription form and as a dietary supplement. Popular statin brands are Lipitor, Crestor, Zocor, and Pravachol. Both classes of cholesterol medicine can have troublesome side effects. Higher doses of statins may be associated with a greater risk of side effects such that side effects tend to be dose-related and may disappear after reducing the dosage or, if necessary, withdrawing the medication. However, even if side effects are experienced, cholesterol medication should not normally be discontinued without consulting a physician. But speak to your doctor immediately. Do not wait for your next visit. Side Effects Of Cholesetrol Lowering Drugs include: Constipation. Nausea. Loss of appetite. Pain in the upper right part of the stomach. Fever. Flu-like symptoms. Hoarseness. Extreme tiredness. Lack of energy. Rash, hives or itching. Muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness. Yellowing of the skin or eyes. Unusual bleeding or bruising. Difficulty breathing or swallowing. Swelling of the face, throat, tongue, lips, eyes, hands, feet, ankles or lower legs. Lowering Cholesterol Medication Should Not Be Taken In Isolation. In addition to taking a cholesterol-lowering medication, making certain changes in your daily lifestyle can also lower your cholesterol blood levels. Eating a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol with little to no grains and sugars and exercising for 30 minutes on most, if not all days, will make a big difference. As will losing weight if you are overweight. Eliminating sugar and grains will inevitably cause beneficial side effects, such as normalizing your weight, increasing your energy and lowering your blood pressure and triglycerides. Lifestyle changes will work in the majority of cases of high cholesterol so why not try those first and give yourself the chance to avoid the cholesterol medicine side effects. Your physician will be able to advise you on this. That's it! Thank you. Please subscribe, comment and like this video if it was helpful! See you soon!

The Dangers of Statins (Cholesterol lowering statin drugs Side Effects LDL cholesterol Myth CoQ10)
 
18:07
Statins (cholesterol-lowering medication) are heavily promoted, used by millions of people and one of the most widely prescribed drugs in the world. Health authorities claim statins reduce the risk of heart disease and strokes because they lower 'bad' LDL cholesterol. Yet these claims are contradicted by statistics and medical studies. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/07/20/the-truth-about-statin-drugs-revealed.aspx http://next-level-nutrition.com/?p=6075 http://naturalnews.com/032448_statin_drugs_scam.html http://www.ravnskov.nu/cholesterol.htm#a The hypothesis is that 'bad' LDL cholesterol clogs up arteries leading to heart attacks and strokes. However, medical research has shown that: 1. People with high cholesterol tend to live longer. 2. People with heart disease tend to have low levels of cholesterol. 3. Lowering cholesterol in a population does not reduce the rate of heart disease. 4. Statins increase(!) the risk of heart disease and strokes. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2005/05/28/cholesterol-heart.aspx http://drbenkim.com/articles-cholesterol.html http://drmalcolmkendrick.org/the-great-cholesterol-con http://cholesterolconspiracy.blogspot.com http://amazon.com/The-Great-Cholesterol-Myth-Disease/dp/1592335217 Statin drugs have become a huge global industry, generating more than $29 billion each year.

However, cholesterol and CoQ10 are essential for optimal body and brain function! http://naturalnews.com/CoQ10.html http://products.mercola.com/coq10-ubiquinol Statins can cause serious side effects, including chronic fatigue, muscle pain, muscle weakness, memory loss, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, diabetes, kidney and liver damage, birth defects, heart failure and cancer.

Adverse Effects of Statins are Far Worse Than You Think
 
07:18
Whenever drug is criticised, big pharma comes to the rescue to salvage profits. What else would you expect when the reason big pharma exists is to make profits for their shareholders. Last year (2013) the British Medical Journal printed an article that criticized a previous article published in the same journal that suggested extending treatment with statins for people with a low risk for cardiovasculars disease. Needless to say, this caused a hullabaloo for those people who published the previous study, the Cholesterol Treatment Trialists' Collaboration, with the contention that their data that showed an 18-20% incidence of adverse drug reactions was incorrect. Of course, it depends on what you consider an ADE! Most of the data identifying the side effects comes from the website of the manufacturer of the drug in question. Do you think this information is likely to include the full extent of side effects when the goal is to sell drug to make profit? For example, we reported a study showing that 40% of people on statins had muscle fatigue, and in 10% it was severe. It is necessary to add up the percentages from each side effect to see the incidence of side effects. Have a look at this URL: http://www.doctorsaputo.com/a/statins-cause-fatigue

Statins permanently damage heart muscle, Peter Langsjoen MD
 
01:34
Hi, this is Larry Hobbs @ FatNews.com. http://fatnews.com/ https://twitter.com/fatnews Statin-induced impairment in heart muscle function appears to be permanent “Statin-induced impairment in heart muscle function appears to be permanent, and even though patients may clinically benefit from discontinuation of the statin along with supplemental CoQ10, we believe that many years of statin drug therapy result in the gradual accumulation of mitochondrial DNA damage,” according to a 2015 review paper by Prof. Harumi Okuyama from Nagoya City University in Nagoya, Japan, Peter H. Langsjoen MD, a cardiologist from Texas, and others who reviewed more than 20 statin drug studies done after 2004. “A prolonged decrease in mitochondrial CoQ10 would diminish the ability to protect mitochondrial DNA from free radical damage.” Prof. Harumi Okuyama: ‘I cannot find any evidence to support people taking statins and patients who are on them should stop’ “We have collected a wealth of information on cholesterol and statins from many published papers and find overwhelming evidence that these drugs accelerate hardening of the arteries and can cause, or worsen, heart failure. “I cannot find any evidence to support people taking statins and patients who are on them should stop,” Prof. Harumi Okuyama from Nagoya City University in Nagoya, Japan, lead author of the 2015 review paper of statin trials, was quoted as saying in the UK newspaper The Daily Express. Peter Langsjoen, MD: ‘These drugs [statins] should never have been approved for use.’ “These drugs [statins] should never have been approved for use. “The long-term effects are devastating,” Peter Langsjoen, MD, a cardiologist from Texas and coauthor of this 2015 review paper, was quoted as saying in the UK newspaper The Daily Express. Dr. Malcolm Kendrick: ‘The harms [of statins] clearly outweigh any previously suggested benefits’ “This study demolishes the argument that these drugs should be prescribed to anyone, as the harms clearly outweigh any previously suggested benefits,” Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, author of The Great Cholesterol Con who has studied cardiovascular disease and statins for many years, was quoted as saying in the UK newspaper The Daily Express.

The FDA has officially linked all statins with cognitive problems like forgetfullness and confusion as well as with a 25% increased risk for an elevated blood sugar level and possible association with type 2 diabetes. Statins are the best selling drugs on the market and are used by 21 million people in the US each year. Of course, there are all the other side effects as well that include liver disease, peripheral neuropathy, myopathy, muscle pain, kidney failure and erectile dysfunction and gynecomastia. New information shows statins can cause mitochondrial dysfunction that leads to a defect in energy production and decreased oxygen utilization. In addition we know that absorption of coenzyme Q10 is is blocked by these CoA reductase inhibitors as well and that this can lead to a cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure. We need cholesterol for a number of functions that include production of vitamin D, many hormones, neurotransmitters, and cell membranes. For more information please visit www.doctorsaputo.com

How Statins Work
 
01:57
Twice as many Americans will be eligible for cholesterol-lowering drugs, based on new guidelines from leading heart groups. Known to lower the risk of heart attack and stroke, Jeff Steffel is no stranger to statins. "I've been on statins almost 20 years," says Steffel. Along with his doctor, Steffel closely monitors his condition. "We look at the levels, I have those checked twice yearly," says Steffel. "I do have high cholesterol in my family." "Statins are medications that have been around for many years now- going on several decades - and they're really the main therapy to treat high cholesterol," says Lee Memorial Health System cardiologist Dr. Brian Taschner. A necessary building block for some hormones, too much cholesterol increases the risk of heart disease. Our liver makes all the cholesterol we need, but we also get it through animal-based foods like milk, eggs and meat. Statin drugs help by turning off the body's natural production. "They actually prevent cholesterol - prevention from the liver. So they limit the body's production of cholesterol, they're also felt to have anti-inflammatory effects and maybe some blood thinning effects," says Dr. Taschner. Diet is the first stop in controlling cholesterol. But several factors are prompting doctors to prescribe drugs to more people, based on previous heart events, age, existing medical conditions and statistical risk. Experts believe a wider use of statins - in the right patients - will save lives. "There are many cholesterol medications that have been available over the years, but the statins are the first group of cholesterol medications that have consistently shown reductions in cardiovascular events. So they don't just reduce the numbers, they actually reduce the events." Despite his family tree, Steffel is changing his personal history by taking a preventative prescription. "The benefits to your health are huge."

What Surgical Patients Need to Know About Statins
 
00:52
www.rxwiki.com In spite of recent recommendations from heart health experts, many patients may still be discontinuing their cholesterol medications before non-cardiac surgery. A new study from the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) found that patients who discontinue statin use for surgery may significantly increase their risk of death. According to the authors of this study, statins often come with a package insert that warns patients to temporarily discontinue use when undergoing surgery. Statins are a class of medications used to lower cholesterol and prevent heart disease. Drugs that fall within this class include atorvastatin (brand name Lipitor), simvastatin (Zocor) and pravastatin (Pravachol), among others.

Sacred Truth Ep. 47: Statins - Don't Believe All You're Told
 
08:00
To learn more: http://lesliekenton.com/health/video/sacred-truth-ep-47-statins-dont-believe-all-youre-told/ I continue to be horrified by guidelines issued by the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology, which speak of giving statin drugs to healthy people. Meanwhile, draft recommendations from the US Preventive Task Force have issued new directives claiming that healthy people should be taking statin drugs as a “preventative against possible future illness.” Their main plan is to see one third of all adults in the United States are put on statin drugs—44% of all men and 22% of all women—even if none of these people have ever had a previous heart attack or stroke. Statins are the most widely prescribed drugs on the market. One in four Americans over 45 are already on statins, despite more than 900 studies reporting dangerous side effects from these drugs. These range from heightened risks of cancer and diabetes to sexual problems, neuropathy, and liver dysfunction, as well as immune system suppression, and even a higher risk of cataracts. In Britain too, statins are the most commonly prescribed drugs, costing the NMS £450 million a year. Now 40% of adults (175 million people) are being advised to take the drug. If the new directives are put into practice by the UK medical establishment—as they are likely to be—the numbers of men and women being prescribed statins could well become legion. What are statins anyway? Statins are a group of drugs prescribed to lower cholesterol levels by inhibiting the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase, which plays a central role in the production of cholesterol in the liver. Statins have many different names, such as Lipitor, Lescol, Mevacor, Altocor, and Zocor. These drugs are prescribed on the assumption that they will lower the risks of cardiovascular events and strokes. The new directives assert that, if given to healthy people, they could help protect the population from heart attacks and strokes at some time in the future. Happily, a growing number of cardiologists are strongly opposed to the new directives. What’s the problem with statins? Plenty: • They deplete your body of CoQ10, which is essential for every cell in your body, and ubiquinol. Both CoQ10 and ubiquinol keep the so-called bad cholesterol from doing harm to your body. However, very few mainstream doctors are ever aware of these dangers. One exception is cardiologist Steven Sinatra, founder of the New England Heart Center. Sinatra recommends that anyone taking statins should take between 100 and 200 mg of CoQ10 or ubiquinol each day as protection. • Statins lower Vitamin K2 in the body. This puts you at risk of deficiency of this vitamin, which contributes to chronic diseases, such as osteoporosis, cancer, and brain disease. • Long-term statin use—10 years or so—has been shown to increase your risk of diabetes, neurogenerative diseases, musculoskeletal problems, and even cataracts. Dr. Eric Topol, highly respected cardiologist and Professor of Genomics at Scripps Research Institute in California, wrote an excellent article for The New York Times Opinion Page in which he warns: “We’re overdosing on cholesterol-lowering statins.” Topol is especially concerned about the sharp increase in the prevalence of Type 2 Diabetes that is occurring in people using them. He writes: “Statins have been available since the 1980s but their risk of inducing diabetes did not surface for nearly 20 years. When all the data available from multiple studies was pooled in 2010 for more than 91,000 patients randomly assigned to be treated with a statin or a sugar pill (placebo), the risk of developing diabetes with any statin was one in every 255 patients treated. But this figure is misleading since it includes weaker statins like Pravachol and Mevacor—which were introduced earlier and do not carry any clear-cut risk. It is only with the more potent statins—Zocor (now known as simvastatin), Lipitor (atorvastatin), and Crestor (rosuvastatin)—particularly at higher doses—that the risk of diabetes shows up. The cause and effect was unequivocal because the multiple large trials of the more potent statins had a consistent excess of diabetes.” Meanwhile, a recent study by Jean A. McDougall and her colleagues in the Journal of Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention reveals that long-term use of statins increases the risk of both lobular and ductal breast cancer in women between 55 and 74.

Do statins increase cancer? Yes!
 
02:14
Hi, this is Larry Hobbs @ FatNews.com. http://fatnews.com/ https://twitter.com/fatnews Do statins increase cancer? Yes, according to a letter published in Current Oncology. The letter starts out by saying “prospective data suggest that statins actually increase cancer in certain segments of the population.” Here are other quotes from the letter. Higher LDL associated with lower cancer risk “large randomized statin trials demonstrate a highly significant (p = 0.009) inverse association between achieved low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels and cancer” [i.e., higher LDL is associated with lower risk of cancer]” The elderly, people with breast cancer and people with prostate cancer at increased risk when given statins “specific populations at risk for the development of incident cancer with statin treatment” include “the elderly and people with a history of breast or prostate cancer” Statins may worsen cancer in people on immunotherapy “statin-treated individuals undergoing immunotherapy for cancer may be at increased risk for worsening cancer” Older people given a statin had MORE cancer “In the PROSPER trial, a 3.2-year prospective study of pravastatin for cardiovascular disease prevention in the elderly (mean age at trial entry: 75 years) at high risk for cardiovascular disease, cancer incidence was significantly increased in subjects randomized to pravastatin.” “the increase in cancer mortality equalled in magnitude the decrease in cardiovascular disease mortality in the statin-treated patients, leaving all-cause mortality unchanged” LIPID trial showed increased cancer in older people “post hoc analysis of the LIPID study, a 6-year prospective trial of pravastatin in individuals with cardiovascular disease, revealed a significant increase in cancer incidence in the elderly subjects (age: 65–75 years) randomized to pravastatin.” High dose statin increased cancer deaths “In a secondary analysis of the TNT study, elderly subjects randomized to high-dose atorvastatin (80 mg daily) versus low-dose atorvastatin (10 mg daily) demonstrated a trend toward increased death, largely from an increase in cancer mortality.” ‘Alarming increase in breast cancer incidence’ in women given a statin “An alarming increase in breast cancer incidence, some of which were recurrences, was seen in women randomized to pravastatin in the CARE trial.” Drug companies now exclude people with cancer from statin trials (to hide the truth) “Thereafter, cancer was an exclusion criterion in randomized statin trials.” [The drug companies trying to hide the truth by doing this.] There is an association between statins and the recurrence of breast cancer “In clinical practice, however, it is not infrequent to find an association between recurrence of breast cancer and concurrent statin therapy.” Statin shown to increase prostate cancer “Long-term follow-up (10 years after trial completion) of WOSCOPS, a 5-year prospective trial of pravastatin in hypercholesterolemic men, revealed an increase in prostate cancer in the men who were randomized to pravastatin therapy.” Statins associated with tumor progression in bladder cancer “Statin therapy has been associated with tumour progression leading to radical cystectomy in patients treated for bladder cancer with bacille Calmette–Guérin immunotherapy.” Conclusion: There is ample evidence to suggest statins increase cancer “In conclusion, we feel that there is ample evidence that statins may promote cancer in certain segments of the population.” “Maybe it is time for a new paradigm that also includes age extremes, prevalent cancer, a past history of cancer, and overall immunocompetence.” Reference Goldstein MR, Mascitelli L, and Pezzetta F.

High Cholesterol Medications
 
02:47
Hi! I'm robo-Suzie and today I'll talk to you about High Cholesterol Medications. Also don't forget to subscribe for more tips in the future! But back to our topic. If you are suffering from high cholesterol then there are a number of different types of medication that your doctor can prescribe you and they will have both their advantages and disadvantages. Some of them are designed to make changes to the way that your body handles cholesterol while others try and reduce it and as a general rule, the high cholesterol treatment that you receive will be alongside lifestyle changes such as eating a healthier diet and exercising more. For the younger generation, this lifestyle change will be attempted before medication is given. Statins are the most popular and effective medicines given to those that suffer from high cholesterol and the different types of medication that are available with this contained within it is rather a substantial number. There have been a lot of clinical studies and evidence to back the positive effects that Statins have on lower cholesterol and they are among the most used ingredients in cholesterol medications. They have also been proved to reduce the risks of heart attacks and also death. There are many brand names of high cholesterol medications and this can make learning about them rather complicated. The ones that are most used to reduce the amount of cholesterol that your liver produces are Lipitor, Mecavor and Pravachol but they have their own generic names as well and may also be produced and manufactured by different companies therefore having different brand names. There are also combinations of high cholesterol medications that contain statins and these also reduce the amount of cholesterol that the liver is producing but can also change how cholesterol is absorbed into the body, lower the blood pressure and also raise the good and lower the bad parts of the cholesterol. These brand named products may include Vytorin, Caduet and Advicor. Other types of high cholesterol medications may be used in conjunction with statins to change the way that cholesterol is removed from the body and also lower the amounts of cholesterol that is being absorbed into the body. As a general rule, your doctor or other healthcare professional will try and change your diet and exercise regimes before he or she will prescribe you with high cholesterol medications and there are a few exceptions to the rule, and these exceptions are those that have coronary heat disease, strokes and other heart problems. However when taking high cholesterol medications it is important to remember that your lifestyle will still need to change, especially if you are overweight to prevent further health risks and to ensure that the medications are working more efficiently. That's it! Thank you. Please subscribe, comment and like this video if it was helpful! See you soon!

Coenzyme Q10-  The Key To A Healthy Heart
 
04:12
http://www.CoQ10CouponCodes.com The heart is a vital organ in the body that runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year without stopping. In order to run efficiently, it needs nutrients such as vitamins A, C, and E. It also needs several important elements such as magnesium, calcium, potassium and sodium. Without question, a healthy beating heart is vital for adequate flow of blood in the body that allows proper functioning of our organs. At its core, the heart is composed of cells. Each cell produces a portion of the energy needed for the heart to operate. If a cell is damaged, then it can lead to a poor blood supply. This condition will cause the heart to become sluggish and inefficient. It is a medical condition known as congestive heart failure. The heart contains mitochondria – the small power plants. These cellular units take up about 40 percent of the space in the cell. They’re responsible for oxidizing the nutrients to manufacture energy for the heart to have a regular rhythm. Poor blood flow from fat-laden arteries can destroy the cardiac cells. When destruction of cardiac cells happens, the mitochondria is also destroyed, resulting in congestive heart failure. For the mitochondria to function properly, coenzyme Q10 must be present. This nutrient can be found in red meat, peanuts, spinach, fish and eggs and organ meats. Needless to say, if your daily diet is poor, then these important nutrients are not available. And, subsequently, the heart starts to fail. Coenzyme Q10, or simply CoQ10, is a vital nutrient manufactured in the body. It’s needed for energy production in the cellular life force. In simple terms, it is the fuel that is needed to produce energy for the cells to function and reproduce properly. Reduction in the production of coenzyme Q10 will affect the ability of the organs to function efficiently, including the heart. There are many things that affect the production of coenzyme Q10. In order to improve the production of CoQ10, it is important to identify the causes of decline in production. Poor nutrition is one of the primary causes of a lack of CoQ10 production. It can lead to fast aging of the body. Additionally, those taking cholesterol-lowering drugs are at risk of having low coenzyme Q10 production. The most popular drugs include Mevacor, Lipator, Pravachol and Zo-cor. Furthermore, drugs that decrease high blood pressure also hinders CoQ10 production. Popular drugs include Cogard, Lopressor and Inderal. There are also illnesses that affect the production of CoQ10. Diseases such as breast cancer, gum disease, diabetes, hypertension and chronic heart failure are some examples. Because CoQ10 is primarily absorbed from meat, having a vegetarian diet can be a disadvantage in the natural production of CoQ10. What can be done to alleviate this issue low CoQ10 production? Taking supplements such as our PLATINUM Series CoQ10 can greatly improve the CoQ10 levels in the body. The dosage, which is often prescribed by a physician, can range from 60 mg to 300 mg per day.

Drugs That May Cause Memory Loss
 
01:06

Why the risks and benefits of statins are so complex
 
17:38
(CNN)As with any medication, statins can come with side effects.Statins, drugs typically used to lower cholesterol, are relatively safe for most people. When they are taken specifically to prevent cardiovascular disease, a new study suggests, the side effects just might outweigh the benefits, depending on your age, sex and the specific statin you're taking.For instance, atorvastatin and rosuvastatin provided cardiovascular benefits at a lower 10-year risk than simvastatin and pravastatin, according to the study.Overall, the benefit of statins may come with higher 10-year risks for cardiovascular disease than are reflected in most guidelines, according to the study, published Monday in the medical journal Annals of Internal Medicine.The finding raises the question: Are statins overprescribed for the prevention of cardiovascular disease?Read MoreThe study analyzed the benefits and risks only when using statins for the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease, including heart attacks and stroke, not when used after a heart attack, for example.Many physicians recommend that patients have conversations about the risks and benefits of statins with their doctors. Statins' benefits beyond heart health aren't clear-cut, analysis says"The main finding is that the risk threshold is substantially higher than what has been determined by experts before and not necessarily by research," said lead study author Dr. Milo Puhan, a professor of epidemiology and public health at the University of Zurich in Switzerland."It really depends on age, gender and the type of overall health status," Puhan said."One size doesn't fit all," he added. "So the risk threshold increases with age, which basically means that you need to have a higher cardiovascular risk in order to get the net benefit from statins."The use of statins is increasing in the United States. The percentage of men 60 and older who were told that their cholesterol was high and started taking statins and other lipid-lowering medications rose from 36% in 2005 and 2006 to 50% in 2015 and 2016, according to a National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey published in the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report in July.The percentage of women 60 and older taking lipid-lowering medications also climbed from 33% to 38%, according to the survey. Not all statin prescriptions are created equalThe new study involved data on the benefits and risks of four commonly used statins: atorvastatin, simvastatin, pravastatin and rosuvastatin.The data came from 40 previously published randomized trials, several observational studies and registries, as well as a patient preference survey, Puhan said. The data were used to estimate risk-benefit across populations in the United States, the United Kingdom and Switzerland.The researchers analyzed risks and benefits in a quantitative benefit-harm modeling study, taking a close look at nine possible outcomes or side effects of statins
