(So did a friend last year; 6 weeks later he was dead from the most aggressive form of asbestosis/mesothelioma.) My news wasn't so bad. It got called a muscle strain and an x ray cleared me of spinal cord tumors/spinal cord occlusion etc. But the doc said,"Your xray also showed something called aortic atherosclerosis, which is build up of cholesterol and calcifications in one of your large blood vessels called the aorta." Do I have established CVD if it is apparent enough to be picked up on a back x ray? No CVE, although I had a broke heart a ways back... I've already got a V script for arthritis, if they want me to go on a statin I'm already taking V. So I'm medicated either way. But if Kaiser decides to cover it for CVD/CVE, am I better off for having something in my aorta that can be seen in the dark and around corners? Quote:Replying to @TerraPharma1 The issue is to get a reasonable label, let the docs prescribe, get the results, and then think about getting ahead of the issue w/ off label scripts. Especially with feedback on arthritis/inflammation benefits and patients trending above 100 TG heading toward >135 . TerraPharma @TerraPharma1 · 5h Exactly. And, after EVAPORATE, off-label regardless of TG will explode.
