What is Crestor used for?

Crestor is used as an adjunct to a low-cholesterol diet and exercise program Crestor is thought to reduce elevated total Cholesterol (total-C), Low-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C), apolipoprotein B (ApoB)-a membrane complex for LDL-C-and non-HDL-C cholesterol levels, as well triglyceride (TG) levels. It also tends to increase High-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL-C) (good cholesterol) in patients with primary hypercholesterolemia (heterozygous familial and nonfamilial) and mixed dyslipidemia (Fredrickson Type IIa and IIb). Additionally, as an adjunct to diet, Crestor is used for the treatment of patients with elevated serum TG levels (Fredrickson Type IV); and to reduce LDL-C, total-C, and ApoB in patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia as an adjunct to other lipid-lowering treatments (e.g., LDL apheresis) or if such treatments are unavailable.
