I am a diabetic, type 1, 37 years old and over weight. I have been a diabetic for 36 years now. I understand that doctors may want you to take meds that you may not need for their initial use but to help with other things. My cholesterol numbers are actually very good and my doctor has been telling me that he was going to put me on cholesterol meds, I refused the meds because my numbers are good and I did not want to be taking meds just for the sake of taking them. He says that I am more prone to stroke and heart attack because of my illness, which I understand. I still am not comfortable taking cholesterol meds just for preventative care, so again, I refused until I am in more need of the meds. He later diagnosed me with dyslipidimia which is a cholesterol disorder, knowing I do mot have this condition, in my mind just to push me to take these meds. I am wondering if this is legal, can he diagnose me with a disorder he knows I do not have in order to push his want for me to take these meds? Any insight would be much appreciated.
