Doesn't surprise me...

Hi Denise,

I'd actually not heard about statins blocking the absorption of fat soluble vitamins, but it doesn't surprise me. The intended action of statins is to block the production of cholesterol which we need in order to absorb fats (and make all hormones by the way).

Interestingly, Statins May Work Because they RAISE Vitamin D Levels. So, there are definitely many forces at play here that are not fully understood.

I do have a somewhat personal question though, being a nutritionist, I'm assuming that you also know about the EXTENSIVE research that specific diets and exercise can lower your lipids just as effectively as statins- according to some researchers. And more importantly, many of the other Statin Side Effects can be DEVASTATING and ruin your quality of life.

So, I challenge the notion that you are getting the "balanced, nutrient-dense diet" that is appropriate for YOU. Either that, or you are not getting the vigorous weight-bearing exercise that you need to decrease your lipids AND that will build your bones up!!

In fact, a long-time Heart Surgeon says that the whole cholesterol issue is a LIE anyway and how it's INFLAMMATION that's the REAL problem- and what to do about it.

Read about why Dr. Lundell says Cholesterol is NOT the Problem! So take a look and find out what he says IS the problem and what you can DO about it.




And Anyway, high cholesterol is not a DISEASE it is a SYMPTOM of other problems and imbalances. Cholesterol medication is simply a dangerous band-aid for a serious problem.
