Do you have a history of heart disease and are unable to tolerate statins?
Are You At Risk Of Developing Heart Disease. Have you been unsuccessful on statin therapy?
This may mean you were unable to tolerate a statin at any dose due to an adverse side effect (for example, severe leg cramp) and were unwilling to attempt a second statin or were advised by your physician not to attempt a second statin.
Have you ever thought about taking part in a research study and helping towards the development of medicine?
