Q: 

What are normal cholesterol Levels?

Deposits of plaque from this fatty substance can be found in the walls of the arteries and develop into “hardening of the arteries” or arteriosclerosis. In order to know if you have normal cholesterol levels, you need to have a blood test or blood panel. Elevated cholesterol levels are also recognized in genetic diseases, liver and kidney disease, and hypothyroidism. High Density Lipoprotein (HDL), Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) and Very Low Density Lipoprotein...
Q: 

Can one have angina while you have normal blood pressure and normal cholesterol?

A: Angina is caused by abnormal blood flow to an area of the heart. That is often caused by coronary artery disease where the coronary arteries are narrowed due to fatty deposits.

Q: 

Should statins be used by those with normal cholesterol levels?

A: I am aware of many persons and industry executives using statins just before heavy meals, business and holiday meals for short term but not regularly. So in a way FDA new approval for Crestor use in persons with normal cholesterol give the above practice official seal of approval. I am not a physician, but I am increasingly appalled at how many cardiologists view cholesterol as they would a golf score, insisting that lower is always better.
