Genetic factors: It sounds like there might be genetic factors involved. Thus not all liefstyle. (ie it might have been higher was it not for your lifestyle changes). One will need to see full lipogram, but options are to increase the aspavor dose still more, depending your other risk factors. Or one can use another type of Statin, or add Ezetrol. Speak to your treating doc about this. (well done so far)
