    My new rheumy called today and said that my bloodwork was "all over the place." Also said that I have a positive rheumatoid factor, but that does not mean I necessarily have RA. You can do a drug search to get info, depending on which type you've been prescribed. I browsed news & found that tidbit came out about a week ago, on/about the 19th of July. But I read that LDL level is now (1) for patients at *high risk* of heart disease, 100 or lower, or possibly even 70 or lower, circumstances depending; (2) for patients at *moderate risk* of heart disease, 130 or lower, or possibly even 100 or lower, circustances depending; and (3) for low-risk patients, no change. All my best, Vee (edited to fix the figures I quoted, because my eyes and my brain have disconnected today... Men usually run 40 to 50 mg/dl, while women run 50 to 60.

You could start your question list now & keep adding/editing right up until your that appt. I'm not sure why he is waiting, all the bloodwork is in. I'm glad to hear that Plaquenil lowers cholesterol - 15%-20% is terrific. As for starting the meds in Sept., I guess he didn't want to go over everything on the phone. I used to have a single article on cholesterol that I kept in my own health notebook.
