Co-Enzyme Q10, Statins, Muscle Pain, and the Heart

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
  Statins block both cholesterol and co-enzyme Q10 production. We need co-Q10 to make energy and when levels are low it can lead to congestive heart failure. It can also lead to muscle pains, the release of myoglobin and renal insufficiency.

Congestive Heart Failure

submitted by: admin on 02/19/2015
Congestive heart failure develops if there is sufficient death of heart muscle (myocardial infarction) and subsequent inability of the remaining normal heart tissue to pump enough blood to the body.

submitted by: admin on 02/20/2015
  Congestive heart failure is the result of sufficient energy. Ankle swelling is an early sign of CHF. Acutely drugs are paramount and work very well. ATP production is dramatically low. A number of nutrients help our mitochondria produce energy better. Statins have the potential to lower coenzyme Q10 and create energy deficient states.                    

Crestor and Muscle Necrosis

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
Crestor has a six times higher incidence of rhabdomyolysis than other statins. This can lead to muscle soreness, muscle pain, and even release of enough myoglobin that it can result in kidney failure. Other complications of statins include liver disease, peripheral neuropathy, global amnesia, and low co-enzyme Q10 levels.
