Bad Cholesterol, Good Cholesterol

In recent weeks I've undergone my annual health check-up. The "bad" ldl level could have been slightly better, so consequently one has to consider the long-term possibility of the need to take statins. Or so we are told. These are, apparently, being dished out like Smarties. Look, I'm not having a dig at my GP or the medical profession as a whole, but having read the recent Daily Mail article, I think one ought to be cautious.

What's your experience of your GP? Good, bad, indifferent?

Do you have raised cholesterol levels?

Are you concerned?
