Episode 283: PREMIUM – Glucose, blood pressure and statin studies to the max
In episode 283, Mike and James discuss the latest T2DM study showing that sitagliptin at least doesn’t cause much harm. We then veer off to discuss everything you need to know about diastolic and systolic blood pressure and how are they associated with CVD. Finally we discuss an n-of-1 study looking at statin-related myalgia. Bottom line – this was clearly a PREMIUM podcast.
