User Feedback


FAQs

Q. What should I know about high cholesterol?

Cholesterol is a type of fat present in your blood. Your total cholesterol is made up of LDL and HDL cholesterol. LDL cholesterol is called “bad” cholesterol as it can build up in the wall of your blood vessels and slow or obstruct blood flow to your heart, brain, and other organs. This can cause heart diseases and stroke. HDL cholesterol is called “good” cholesterol as it prevents the bad cholesterol from building up in the blood vessels. Triglycerides also are harmful fats found in your blood.

Q. What is Simvotin blood thinner or a beta blocker or steroid or diuretic or is it a statin or does simvastatin thin your blood?

No, simvastatin is a statin (lipid-lowering agents) or HMG CoA reductase inhibitors
