Statins seem to have anti-tumor effects too... If you look at the book How To Starve Cancer she talks about it... There is an alternative oncology clinic doing a course of repurposed drugs in a combo for BC... a statin + metformin + mebendazole (pinworm drug) + doxycycline... between the 4 prongs, a lot of cancer stem cell replication pathways are attacked.
Interesting what you say about hunger, I have been hungrier too since getting on metformin, did not realize it was a SE because I have been recovering post treatment in general... but anyway, I want the metformin benefits. Ironically, I have found intermittent fasting has brought my hunger level down.
I am NED after neoadjuvant chemo but have been thinking that now might be a good time to ask my MO about adding a statin, and to do a course of doxycycline & mebendazole, before there is something larger to fight... May I can convince him to let me do 60 or 90 days of it. I
have pushed that poor man to his breaking point.... he's Mr. Double Blind.... but he has been a trouper to hang in with me on all the complimentary therapies i have pursued. I keep thinking, if it doesn't hurt and it might help, then I want it....
Other compounds I am interested in are berberine, DHEA, chloroquine, dipyridamole... I am already on curcumin, EGCG, quercetin and I have been doing hyperbaric oxygen + Vitamin C IV once per week. I am hoping a full court press during first 3 year prime recurrence window will help me....
