Statins are used to control LDL Cholesterol in our bodies. They are effective, which is why cardiologists prescribe them for their patients at risk for heart attack, coronary heart disease, angina and stroke. Sometimes, however, they get prescribed to patients with a family history of the above conditions. An important note on statins is that while they reduce cholesterol being made by the body, they do NOT remove any blockages already in existence.
