On Statins? Beware

31 Oct

It never ceases to amaze me that so many people who take medications have no idea that need to be wary about eating certain foods. The one that I see in clinic again and again are Statins.

Grapefruit & Statins?

Grapefruit & Statins?

Many people taking statins do not know that they should avoid grapefruit. This fruit slows down how the body breaks down the drug and you have more than you should do in the blood stream. So when taking medication please check the instructions in the packet BEFORE taking them!
