Thanks for the Goodie and the warm Welcome to the low carb team. After last years stellar health numbers my Dr. put me on the lowest possible dose he could go with on the statins with a promise that if my numbers look that good this year we will readdress the issue of taking me off of them. I have an appointment this Monday. My fingers are crossed. But seriously - if he is resistant to change I may follow your lead and file 13 the statins.
