Statin Drugs: Two Notes

Note One:

Jury Clears Doctors In John Ritter Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Lotysch testified he told Ritter he had calcification in three coronary arteries and should consult other doctors. But in a related finding, the jury decided that Ritter’s failure to pursue that medical consultation was not a cause of his death.

Emphasis added by me.

That sounds contradictory at first glance. But what he died of was something cardiac-related but not entirely caused by the calcification.

I have two things to say about this:

1) If you are diagnosed similarly, follow up!

2) I couldn’t stand John Ritter. I saw the first episode of the original British series that Three’s Company was based on. By comparison, our version stunk. I saw John Ritter in the movie Hero At Large. I still couldn’t stand him. The premise of 8 Simple Rules For Dating My Daughter intrigued me and I tuned in. Suddenly, John Ritter was a great talent to me! So, ultimately, yeah, I wound up liking him and his sudden death was truly tragic. He was in a very funny series that could have run for ages.

Note Two:

Yesterday I finally got copies of my blood work that was done over the past several years. I have to go through all of that and extract the salient details that relate to my being put on Simvastatin. Those of you who are interested in this, be forewarned: The free WordPress service I use will not allow me to create a table. A table would be the easiest and clearest way to present this data. But that’s not going to happen. So, I’ll have to see what I can do to not make it a total mess.

    Hi I have had 4 large calcified cysts diagnosed in my brain following 3 years on Simvastatin. My neurologist says that there is no link – I know there is . Simvastatin nearly killed me. Give me back my memory.
