Customer Question
I have high cholesterol...

I have high cholesterol and bumps around my eyes. I am allergic to statins. Are there any other remedies?

Doctor's Assistant: Do you know if your family has a history of heart disease? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

Generally good - had a bad cold and spent 4 days in the hospital and having a urinary track infection at the same time. Heart disease is in my family.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I am taking synthroid, xarelto, chlorhalidone ever other day.

My mom has type 1 diabetes and is on insulin for it. She also has advanced kidney disease. Doctors put her on Losartan and matropolol to lower her blood pressure because of heart issues (arrhytmia). She is also taking furesimide and prilosec and pravastatin (but she's allergic so she's stopping that). Anyway, the question is this. It seems like the blood pressure meds are toxic to her. We looked online and she has all the possible bad side effects you could have for them. We have made an appointment with doctors but they missed it so we are stuck waiting for them to make it again. We would like to get informed meanwhile about what alternative meds she could be put in to avoid the toxicity she's experiencing. They are not just for the heart but also to lower her blood pressure because of her eyes. Thanks in advance! … read more
