Episode 216: Questions that lead to questions and then more questions – Part IV
In episode 216, Mike and James finally get to the last of the listener questions. We discuss the numbers around the pneumococcal and influenza vaccines, metformin and contraindications, the timing of antihypertensives, and stuff for osteoporosis. Ironically we end with the question “does any of this mean anything in the grand scheme of things?” and we design a metaphorical RCT to answer that question.
