Default Illness Inflation

In MedPage this morning: "Our John Fauber, Kristina Fiore, and Matt Wynn won a major business journalism award for "Illness Inflation," a joint project with our partners at the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel."

Interactive list of eight conditions, 3 are medical; pre-diabetes, over active bladder and Low T. 5 psychiatric conditions also.

It's a long 2016 series ..haven't even read them all yet, but the over-active bladder story is good example of creating an illness to fit a drug in which the investigator happens to have a financial interest.
The numbers of new "patients" and profits are staggering, especially for pre-diabetes. We get excited seeing any BG number over 100 but this had interesting comments about these new lower thresholds.
