Summary
"From an award-winning cardiologist comes the most up-to-date, definitive reference book about statins--cholesterol-lowering drugs--providing a thorough examination of the uses and safety claims of this high-profile class of drugs.Controversy over drugs such as Lipitor and their widespread use has made its way into the mainstream, with Time magazine and ABC News devoting coverage to the efficacy of statins. Now, the Director of the Women's Cardiac Center in Providence, Rhode Island uses case studies and anecdotes to discuss the uses, misuses, dangers, and benefits of statins, enabling you to make informed decisions on how and when to use them. Including information on when statins help and when they don't, common side effects, gender differences and drug use, as well as tips and recipes that promote heart health, The Truth About Statins is a timely and invaluable tool for improving cardiovascular health and helping you meet your lipid-lowering goals"--
