#stoppedstatins day one 12. July 2019

Friday, July 12, 2019

Today is the day I have personally decided to come off statin prescribed by my doctor. I am nervous about it but I want to improve my health and fix this, I could fail but hopefully not. I want to be here for my wife and family wherever they are. I have seen to much stuff bad about statins doing research and how it could be more harmful than good, then on the other side high ldl cholesterol being bad and causes strokes and heart attacks if not under control and that's why statin are prescribed. I pray for my wife and I as we do this Keto diet and stop statins.
Now I am hoping that I will be able to get some exercise in everyday and keep this diary on here and other places to keep you guys updated. Delwyn and I are already seeing the changes in our bodies since we started this on the 1st of July and we have lost the weight but we have a long road ahead of us. I will also post naps that I take because normally I am exhausted half of day through and I have noticed that the tiredness is starting to be later in the day, hopefully it will get better and I can have full busy days with energy and restful nights sleeps.
My wife at the moment is experiencing nasty headaches that goes to her right shoulder since not having bread and sugars since the first day starting this, but this pain as been the last few days but just at funny times and we wonder if some of it could be lifting the grandkids.
Anyway hopefully we will continue to improve cholesterol, blood pressure and my wife the same plus type one diabetes. We appreciate the positive or negative feedback if you have come off statins and what it felt like you few days we appreciate hearing from your experiences. Also any feedback if you are starting Keto too. Thank you in advance.
