    Effects of statins on mitochondrial pathways

    Besides the well-known beneficial effects in primary and secondary prevention of CVD, statins may induce adverse effects, like myopathy. Mitochondrial dysfunction is likely to play an important role in the pathogenesis of these adverse reactions due to CoQ10 depletion, inhibition of ETC complexes, depletion of mevalonate pathway end products, membrane depolarization and induction of intrinsic apoptosis, dysregulation of calcium metabolism, and fatty acid oxidation. Chronic statin treatment has been associated with increased risk for T2DM and cognitive impairment. The beneficial effects of statin treatment are not questionable; however, the widespread usage of these drugs and the considerable prevalence of side effects require the underlying pathological mechanisms to be carefully studied.

  3. Statins increases: Coronary Artery Calcium Score, promotes vascular calcification, and the plaque get harder

    Just as Dr. @Jack Kruse has "taught" his tribe -> Statins are a mitochondria toxin. - https://forum.jackkruse.com/index.php?posts/300862

    Wonder what is your levelof E3, Estriol.Measured in urine.
    If less than in the middle of laboratory range, maybe worthwhile to get it up.

    More on this and few posts after that one.
    E3 looks like a jack of all trades since it is about the parietal (which is the lining behind any bodily surface)
    Including vascular (so heart or arteries too).

    Thanks for that @JanSz. I'll look into it as I am showing some signs of autoimmune - dermatitis. I'm considering a multi-day fast to attempt to counter it using autophagy etc.
