Cholesterol Medication And The Effects On The Liver

  • Hello everyone, I'm Dr. Hugh and I'm excited to share a powerful case with you today that highlights the impact of cholesterol lowering medication. This case is particularly noteworthy because it shows the dramatic improvement that can happen in just five months. But before we dive into the specifics, let me first encourage you to like and subscribe to my channel so that you can stay up-to-date with the latest information on health and wellness.

  • Now, let's talk about this case. The patient had been on a 10mg dose of Crestor to lower her cholesterol, but when we looked at her labs in May of 2021, her cholesterol was still at 208. Her liver markers were also elevated, indicating tissue breakdown. But the real shock came when we took new labs just five months later, after she had been under our care.

  • The patient, a 71-year-old female, had seen significant improvement. Her cholesterol was now at a healthier level, but the real triumph was in her liver markers. Her ATL had gone from 28 to a staggering 230 in just four months, indicating severe liver damage. This was likely due to the combination of antibiotics and stat medications she had been on before seeking our care. Her AST and alkaline phosphatase were also alarmingly high.

  • What's even more concerning is that this patient's cholesterol was lowered to a dangerous level, less than 150, which is associated with an increased risk of dementia, Parkinson's disease, and other neurological conditions. Cholesterol is a critical component of cell membranes and plays a vital role in hormone production and inflammation reduction. Lowering it too much can have devastating effects on the body.

  • It's important to remember that cholesterol benchmarks have been decreasing over time, meaning more people are diagnosed with high cholesterol and put on statins. While these medications can be powerful, they can also have significant negative impacts on the body.

  • At our practice, we prioritize truth and healing, which is why we share cases like this. If you learned something from this video, please give it a thumbs up and check out our other content. Remember, where there's inflammation, there's hope. Thank you for watching.
