Lowering cholesterol levels- Simvastatin
At elevated LDL blood levels, cholesterol may accumulate from the blood in the vessel walls and narrow them. This leads to circulatory disorders with potentially serious consequences. Cholesterol is not fundamentally harmful as in appropriate quantities it is essential for the function of our body cells.However, if cholesterol levels cannot be adequately normalized by a healthy diet, exercise and weight loss, Simvastatin provides a reliable alternative to reducing them. This cholesterol-lowering drug measurably reduces the proportion of circulating fats in the bloodstream, and therefore reduces so-called "arteriosclerosis". Simvastatin has been approved for the UK market since 1990, and is today one of the most used medications in the case of elevated cholesterol levels.
The impact of Simvastatin
Cholesterol is responsible for the transport of fats in the blood. The body produces the cholesterol itself and only one third of the cholesterol requirement must be covered by the diet. Too high cholesterol levels can therefore be effectively lowered by regulating the body's own production. This is exactly where the cholesterol-lowering drug comes in. The cholesterol level can additionally be normalized with a careful diet. So the blood fat levels get back to a balanced state which prevents the deposit on the vessel walls. In addition, treatment with Simvastatin converts fats in the blood to a better digestible composition.
How to take Simvastatin
Oral intake accelerates the effect of the drug. After two hours, the maximum effect of the drug is reached. Since the cholesterol formation is most effective at night, the cholesterol-lowering drug is usually taken once a day in the evening. The success of the treatment depends crucially on the regularity of the intake. For your individual dose, please follow the instructions of your doctor.
