As you are aware, AAS increase cholesterol levels. Besides a healthy diet, family history can be a very potent factor in the cause of increased lipid levels. This is where lipid lowering drugs, like Crestor, become important.

Crestor, a lipid lowering drug that also raises the good HDL cholesterol, has been FDA approved for use as primary prevention in patients without elevated LDL but with a combination of other risk factors. Crestor is also known to increase the good HDL cholesterol levels.
