Gene variant linked to myalgia and statin use


Making the most of it
I couldn't get this article up on my screen but when I went through the 23andme and the external health report process (can't remember which one) my results came back as being many times more likely to be damaged by taking statins.

Pity I didn't know that before I took them. I believe they were a significant trigger for ME in my case.
