Episode 80: Listener comments and questions with an attempt at answers – Part II

In episode 80, Mike and James continue getting back to listener questions. We discuss such topics as glucose monitoring, ezetimibe, niacin, nebulised salbutamol and niacin with uncanny intuitive insight coupled with a degree of emotional sensitivity rarely encountered in podcasts. We then wake up and get Peter Loewen to help answer a difficult question on oral anticoagulants.
