Are You In The Dark About Lower Cholesterol?
© 2005 - Frank Mangano
A common drug used to lower cholesterol may have you in the dark both figuratively and literally. Zocor, (generic name, Simvastatin) is often prescribed to lower cholesterol, but has the side effect of making skin highly sensitive to sun light exposure. You might be spending your summers indoors instead of enjoying the many healthy activities you could be doing outside.
Zocor lowers cholesterol effectively when combined with a low cholesterol diet. It reduces fats in the blood that become dangerously high and clog arteries by making the fatty substance stick to the artery walls. This is a condition known as atherosclerosis, and is dangerous because oxygen to organs throughout the body is limited.
However, skin becomes sensitive to sunlight when a patient takes this particular statin drug. In order to enjoy the outdoors, be sure to use extra sunscreen and wear sunglasses and a hat to protect skin from harmful overexposure. You must also inform your doctor if you are taking any type of blood thinners, antacids, or even which vitamins you are taking so that more serious side effects do not occur.
You can often lower cholesterol without the use of prescription medications and without having to deal with unwanted side effects. Natural methods have been proven to be effective even in individuals with a family history of high cholesterol.
Following a diet high in selenium, chromium, and calcium are part of an overall diet plan that can lower cholesterol. The objective in lowering cholesterol is to lower the LDL cholesterol and raise the HDL cholesterol. Selenium has that ability to balance out the cholesterol levels of both types of cholesterol. You can learn how to accomplish lower cholesterol in two short months in the top selling book, The 60 Day Prescription Free Cholesterol Cure.
