Fewer high-risk patients put on statins since NICE guidance, study finds


Imagine one of the experts trying to pitch statins in the dragons den Do we think they would get the investment Clearly one dragon would ask if they have ever met a patient,leading to a somewhat embarrassing silence Another would ask for a clearer explanation as to the benefits,cue much incomprehensible political geospeak Finally they would be asked,at what level of nnt are grossly unhealthy people prepared to take a daily muscle acher They would be advised to do some research The dragons like the patients would be out
