    • Hi Mtd
      Well its encouraging that you , poster Fsulevine, Zoo and others are finding MD's willing to prescribe. Mine seem to be hung up requiring outcome data --- but hopefully that will change ---their current stance may be related to the fallout from the Niacin trial failure . ( Thousands of us were on Niacin for years only to find that altho it " moved the numbers " it didn't reduce "events "

      Mtd Theres a new program on The Heart dot org " Clinical Advances in type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular risk " Dr Deepak Bhatt ( Reduce it trial ) is the co chair ----thought you might be interested .
      The Reduce it trial , as you may know , is actively recruiting diabetics since its their view that this group of patients are likely to see the most benefit from using Vascepa ---- so well done on getting a scrip.

      As a side note ... JL seems pretty excited over the latest Harvard School of Public Health research mentioned by Ali and Tod " Higher blood omega-3's associated with lower risk of premature death among older adults"
      Key pts
      DHA in fish oil effective in lowering CHD death due to arrhythmias ( electrical disturbances of heart rhythm )
      EPA in fish oil most strongly linked with lower risk of nonfatal heart attack.
