Early next week I meet my new Cardiologist.  Looking at my labs, family history, and CAC she will be more than eager to put me on a statin.

I imagine that the pressure from her and accompanying family member (who believes to his core that doctors know best) will be quite intense!

Awhile back I saw a great post about what to ask or say in regard to being confronted with the urgency to get on a statin right away. Unfortunately I can’t locate that post again. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The last cardiologist said I had, “crossed the line” in regard to options with statins into full blown heart disease.  Although asymptomatic I did experience a retinal branch occlusion 2 or 3 years ago.  My eye sight fortunately wasn’t effected by it.

I suppose the worse thing that could happen is that they will refuse to have me as

A patient.

Any suggestions of what to say or what to point to when surrounded by those invoking the fear of God in regard to statins?

I continue with my undoctored approach of no grains/sugar, net carbs below 15g, prebiotic fibers, optimized D, magnesium, FO, new thyroid labs indicate low FT3 and FT4 and reverse T3 of 5.7 (ref. <9) so not sure what to do there yet,  and started another round of SIBO treatment. 
Any suggestions of what to say or point to would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Maria Helena

why bother going to a doctor, whose advice you’re not going to take?

LOL, you are becoming the "Undoctored King" of one-liners.  You should call Tom Naughton and see if he wants to team up!

I think I once heard that legally (in Canada anyway) a patient is entitled to see all of his medical records.
