Not complete story: The cholesterol panel includes LDL, HDL, non-LDL/HDL cholesterol making the total cholesterol score. The rosuvastatin would lower the LDL value. Ideal LDL values depend on your health factors, but doctors usually target less then 100 LDL. I would also suggest that you optimize your general health with a healthy lifestyle and work with you MD on this. yourhealthforumbydrcirino.org
