Statin use may increase risk of type 2 diabetes, study finds


Not something new but this is perhaps targeting those with pre-diabetes (borderline diabetes , impaired glucose regulation etc whatever you want to call it). So , putting them on statin appeared to push them over the edge to type 2 DM? I wonder if it is something to do with the statin’s effect obviously the liver and hence , affecting gluconeogenesis? No matter what , statin looks set to become as famous as Donald Trump with everyone talking about it eventually.......
