I’d be interested in a post with any recommendations you may have for dealing with a Provider who is skeptical about proactive treatment? Based on some of your previous posts I’d likely benefit from a statin but my provider uses the ASCVD 10 year scores and I’m theoretically low risk even though I’m at 124 mg/dl LDL. Would rather not be that patient that says “I read on the internet that you should treat me”! I wonder if other subscribers may be in the same boat, all this knowledge is great but I can’t prescribe myself these treatments so any thoughts on finding/talking to providers might be helpful. Thanks!
