    This is a helpfull research paper. I know it's rare, however something that all of us should be aware of. I have plenty of patients on lipid modifying medication, some of which are still quite young and active. It seems this may put them in a higher risk category for tendon complications.

    My Father in-law has extremely high cholesterol and has been a marathon runner most of his life (he is a butcher though, loves a snag) and recently had a tripple bi-pass. He has always been plagued by achilles problems, not that he lets me have a look, you know the son-in-law thing. I'm not sure of his medication, I'm keen to have a look now though.
