He can want to all he want's but you don't have to accept it. let him know you are pursuing a solution through diet and exercise and have no intrest in taking statins. Doctors are not are as subject to group think as any other profesion. Stand up for yourself. Doctors cannot order you to do anything(unless you are institutionalized. )
He will either continue to treat you or refuse to if you don"t do what he thinks you should. Mim what you think and he will want to monitor situation. But take charge of your own health. Most people don't challenge their physicians so they are used to simply prescribing becasue most people want pills to fix their problems
Integrity is what we do when nobody's watching.
