I'd phrase it differently: there is a desire in the medical community to need to know less.Is there a desire from the medical community to not know these things?
I'd balance everything you have said (much of which I outright agree with) with the following points (in no specific order):
- the statistics on drug compliance are dreadful with something like 50% of patients getting slack within one year (perhaps till their first stroke when they get it, but may not get a second chance)
- knowing the statistics surgeons bias towards keeping it all under their control (which they don't control with OAT)
- the labs don't give a shlt about anything other than
1 their bottom line
2 not being found culpable
So "near enough is good enough"
- few people are really any good at DIY, being organised or being consistent and there is no qualifications or assessment criteria used to see if you're smart enough to do it
