Drink? smoke? 

If you haven't already I would give your diet a good overhaul, look at what you eat and cut out the majority of crap foods.

Apple cider vinegar has been shown to provide some good benefits towards diabetes and it's cheap as chips.

Rearly drink.  Never smoked. Very little processed food.  Do eat 8-10 eggs a week and red meat 3 times a week.

There are three things you MUST do:

 

1. Go to the facebook group and join 2800 others :  https://www.facebook.com/groups/statins/?ref=br_rs

 

2. http://www.pharmaceutical-journal.com/opinion/insight/the-cholesterol-and-calorie-hypotheses-are-both-dead-it-is-time-to-focus-on-the-real-culprit-insulin-resistance/20203046.article

 

3. Spend all day today, tomorrow etc reading everything on here: http://statincrap.blogspot.co.uk/

Agree,  The huge controversy around statins can't be ignored and many well respected medical experts have be very outspoken about the mass use of them.

I would never use them 

I see a Professor of Cardiology and he is dead set against statins.
