Headline

NICE statins plan is 'unsustainable' for GPs, says BMA official response

Comment

Remember the recent story about 25% over-diagnosis of CKD stage 3a. Even NICE has to admit to this fact and drafting a new guideline to recommend eGFR-Cystatin C instead to make the diagnosis more correctly. It is still about doing something justified but NOT OVERDOING it . Common sense.
