Statin drugs to lower cholesterol are complicated to use, and for this reason are often misused. There are nine different drugs and there are major differences in their solubility in water or fat, effects on insulin resistance, where they are detoxified, and how much they interfere with coenzyme Q10 levels in the body. The synthesis of both cholesterol and coenzyme Q10 is blocked by statin drugs. Levels are reduced about 50%. Without coenzyme Q10 our body cannot produce ATP in the mitochondria and our body becomes energy deficient.
Lack of ATP leads to myalgias and replacing coenzyme Q10 corrects this problem.
