6 worst medications for your kidneys (slideshow)
High cholesterol is one of the so-called silent killers. But high doses of the drugs known as statins seriously increase your risk of kidney damage. People taking relatively large amounts of these pharmaceuticals are 34 percent more vulnerable to a condition known as acute kidney injury (AKI). Every year, AKI kills about 40,000 people in the United States. Rosuvastatin, atorvastatin and simvastatin are statin drugs.
Overall, there are many natural ways to reduce bad cholesterol and prevent it from clogging your arteries. If you are currently taking a statin drug, please discuss with your physician your ability to change your lifestyle a bit to embrace the natural solutions while weaning off the statin.
