I have just come back from a GP appointment to get some more cholestagel. He asked if I would mind speaking to a fifth year medical student and he left the room.
What an opportunity to tell the next generation of doctors about statin side effects, risk versus benefits, the disparity of genetic testing for FH in England and Scotland, the difficulty in getting a diagnosis, the polarity of the statin debate, should you ask about muscle disorder before prescribing statins.
I couldn't get it all in and was most disappointed when he came back in! I felt like saying "Please go away and let me continue this interesting discussion". Unfortunately I was much too polite.
