Great piece. I was prescribed Crestor many years ago. As I am a great believer in markers and blood tests I noticed a marker rising rapidly. Nobody seemed to notice or remark on this. I investigated and found it indicated muscles disintegrating probably caused by Crestor. I stopped taking Crestor.
Unfortunately the muscle disintegration blocked one kidney and now I have one kidney that is much smaller and possibly not functioning. All this from taking a medicine I didn’t need. Great medicine. I discussed this with my cardiologist and he agreed with my reasoning but said there was no real proof. He has cut down on prescribing statins.
