hi bill, ooooooooo colorado so pretty!!!! my best friend lives in centennial and i went to some training in '05 in fort collins too. gotta get back there when there's some SNOW!
okay so anyway, maybe while you can't get statins, you could sub in some b3. you can read up a little on the mayo clinic site:
personally, i was just getting all hyper at reading that studies say it's better than statins at lowering cholesterol. now of course that does not mean that whatever statins do for ms will be done better by b3... but there's no harm in taking some... we ms-ers tend to be low in b12 and i think that pretty much is an indicator for your b status in general...
finally, i guess you'd have to look at whatever studies mayo mentions, that found liver damage from what level of b3 supplementation, in order to know how not to overdo it! reckon you could get some of the typical liver monitoring done that is implemented with many prescription drugs, to make sure everything was on the up and up if you take niacin instead.
so hopefully that can help tide you over until you can get some statins sorted out.
