Clinical Practice Guidelines or Legalized Bribery?
Dr. Jason Fung

Great piece. I was prescribed Crestor many years ago. As I am a great believer in markers and blood tests I noticed a marker rising rapidly. Nobody seemed to notice or remark on this. I investigated and found it indicated muscles disintegrating probably caused by Crestor. I stopped taking Crestor.

Unfortunately the muscle disintegration blocked one kidney and now I have one kidney that is much smaller and possibly not functioning. All this from taking a medicine I didn’t need. Great medicine. I discussed this with my cardiologist and he agreed with my reasoning but said there was no real proof. He has cut down on prescribing statins.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
