for statins.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Patients Who Quit Statins May Face Raised Death Risk - Yahoo! News

"Doctor knows best," said Dr. Richard Furie, chief of the division of rheumatology at North Shore-LIJ Health System in Lake Success, N.Y. "Whatever medicines your doctor puts you on, take them all."

Ye GAWDS.

I am shocked that the conclusion is that anyone who questions a physicians recommendation or refuses a dangerous medication is a "bad patient". Truly offensive. Run, do not walk, away from doctors like that...

this is sooo offensive. from the link :

"You try to scare them," Furie said. "Some people scare and some people don't. The doctor knows best; take your pills."

That makes my blood boil. Yes, I do have inflammation and arthritis, but statins didn't affect it for me and the side effects did...he is one egotistic son of a b***h in my opinion.

It is a scary society when the doctors dont think for them self. They just gives us what the big drug companies says

Does boiling raise, lower, or no effect on BG

Not much of a study to know no more than patients that quit statins and at some later point in time died. What other factors were involved that contributed to CVD? Autopsies performed? I doubt it.

I remember in an interview with Dr Bernstein several years ago someone asked him about statins. He doesn't believe in them but he said if you are on them you need to be careful coming off of them. He said he always recomends people go to a cardiologist to get off of them. Well, I went off of mine cold turkey and I didn't die but I don't have RA, either. I felt being on them was killing me slowly, so whatever happened going off of them would happen. Why would doctors put us on a drug that could kill you if you stopped taking it. Now, to me that is malpractice.

oooh, sounds like a bully, wanting to scare patients into compliance...to me, that takes all credibility away from them. Kind of like crying wolf, when are they trying to scare you and when is it legit?
