New to the forum, so apologies on advance if this has already been covered/discussed.
How can I go about finding a Doctor that will work with me on this journey. Mine is still preaching the old dogma and I anticipate we’re about to come to an impass on my lipids and statin therapy.
First off I’ve spoken to her once a year ago. All subsequent communication has been via typed messages with her PA via the patient portal. She’s still insisting that I go on a low fat diet due to my cholesterol. And has tried to up my statin therapy- completely ignoring the fact that I told her I quit taking the last statin prescription 4 months ago. All this after I reported that I’ve been on a low carb diet and IF for the last 4 months. In which time I’ve 1) lost 45 lbs, 2) dropped my A1C from 6.0 to 5.1, 3) been able to stop taking prilosec entirely, (no more acid reflux) 4) dropped my triglycerides almost in half (still high at over 200, but half of what it was before)
I live and work in the St Louis area. Surely there has to be someone out there that will work with me on this? Any advice on how to find a progressive doctor?
