Despite the myth you have long heard, now it has been established that Statins do not cause diabetes.
Only one media source has published the results of a recent study from Lancet. However it is suspected that there must be many more in the pipeline. The results of the most would be
“Statin causes a 9 percent increase in diabetes”
Though Lancet study is a major analysis of trials of Statin. This study was conducted to monitors the risk linked with statins and diabetes development.
The researchers got the idea of doing meta analysis from many Jupiter trials that were sowing that Crestor has reduced the risk of heart attack in patients. These patients were taking statin and had an increase SRP.
The thing that was observed on this study was weather these patients had an increase in the development of diabetes.
When this data was first released the diabetes report was increased in Crestor group. It was also stated that these were only physicianâ€™s reports without any confirmation. There is not any biological explanation to suspect Statin or Crestor as a diabetes cause. Further more both groups had 41 % metabolic syndrome. This metabolic syndrome is pre diabetic stage.
So if it is true than how one can say that diabetes is not cause because of Statin.
