    My doctor’s office did full court press to take Crestor in spite of risks & side effects.

    Lack of compliance may mean being put out of the center.

    I finally said “yes I will accept” and will fill the script and flush them down the toilet.

    I’ve worked hard to bring down BG, weight, blood pressure etc and have strong doubt about lipid hypothesis.

    I have no doubts about the dangers of statins.

    Push for profit.

    My cholesterol test came back in the 'just healthy' range and my HBA1c reading was 40, but my diabetic nurse told me that all T2 patients should be on statins for life regardless of their HBa1C results. I refused statins and this has been noted on my medical notes.
