statin and cholesterol?

I been on Crescor, and my cholesterol is 169, but my ldl is high and triyclide are higher. My hdl went down from 70 to 42? I don’t understand. The statin only lowered my good cholesterol. Why?

    It would be better if you had mentioned your LDL cholesterol & Triglyceride level.

    However, Your total blood cholesterol level is good. Your HDL cholesterol is not bad though it should rise a bit higher.

    All I can suggest you is regular heavy exercise and foods which will increase your HDL cholesterol level. Consult your doctor to know whether your are taking overdose of crestor.

    That is strange. I am not sure why that would happen for you. But here is a tip that might help you:
    A miracle food for lowering cholesterol is walnuts. Dont know WHY it helps, but it does. I recommend it to all my patients who are suffering from high LDL’s

    I saw an ad in the paper today for a drug that you take with the statin that is suppose to lower triglyceride and raise hdl. Don’t remember the name, but I’m sure your doc will know it.

    that’s odd what you need to do is ask your doctor if he or she thinks there are any underlining causes or go to a cardiologist for a more extensive cardiac exam such as a EKG (echo-cardiogram)
