Quotes

...how I wanted to like I said I would have been on insulin some of the lifestyle changes is what did it for me to get off statins," Becker said. "It was healthier too, I lost 23 pounds and I feel good."
Professor Lip concluded: "These one year results are generally encouraging and uptake of ESC guidelines has been reasonably good. There has been a focus on patient centred and symptom directed management, and there has been an improvement in anticoagulation with increasing use of the CHA2DS2-VASc score. However we still need to pay attention to the high mortality and morbidity of AF patients and the tendency of some cardiologists to change the type of anticoagulation after one year."
...Dr Sean Harper, executive vice-president of research and development at Amgen, said: "Statins are an important therapy for patients with high cholesterol and adding evolocumab may help lower their LDL cholesterol levels when statins are not sufficient." This comes in the same week that the firm submitted a biologics licence application for the new drug in the US
"The more medications patients are taking, the more likely they are to become overwhelmed," Dr. Eisenberg pointed out. "Sometimes patients are not sure which medication is causing a particular side effect, and they stop taking all of them."
