Despite Real Benefits, Most At-Risk Patients Don't Adhere to Statin Treatment
Matt Shipman, North Carolina State University
A new study from North Carolina State University shows that
the vast majority of patients at high risk for heart disease or stroke do a
poor job of taking statins as prescribed. That's especially unfortunate,
because the same study shows that taking statins can significantly increase the
quality and length of those patients' lives.
National Stroke Association’s mission is to reduce the incidence and impact of stroke by developing compelling education and programs focused on prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and support for all impacted by stroke.
