    Statin Use and Risk of Diabetes

    Primal Fuel
    Here is the study:
    JAMA Network | JAMA Internal Medicine | Statin Use and Risk of Diabetes Mellitus in Postmenopausal Women in the Women's Health Initiative

    Here's the articles on it:
    Lipitor Diabetes
    Could Statins Raise Diabetes Risk? - US News and World Report

    And here's two of the Lawsuits:

    This one includes the list of statins included

    Oh Hurray! Finally, we may start to be proven right. Congratulations, Griff!

    My girlfriend went to the doctor last year and found she had extraordinarily total cholesterol (350+), but not other risk factors. The doctor put her on statins, a year later her cholesterol is down to 146 and the doctor is telling her she is pre-diabetic. But her cholesterol is great!

    It turns out the statins wreaked all sorts of havoc. They were discontinued, but she is still healing.

    Here they give any woman with diabetes statins by default, it's crazy!

    This is what you get when you manipulate variables at the END of a physiological break, rather than address the cause.

    As you may be able to tell from my post, I have a deep-seated hatred of statins. For 9 years I was STRONGLY prescribed statins by the cholesterol clinic of my HMO. My TC could go up into the 600's. Genetic they said. Now they say Familial hypercholesterolemia. They'd start with one, and after weeks or months I'd be allergic or intolerant of it, with really painful reactions, often resulting in an emergency room visit. And after I'd recuperated from that, they'd have me start the next one. when they ran out of statins, they tried other drugs: zetia, cholestryamia, etc. These, as well and several statins had really horrible effects in me. One of them was rampantly eating my muscles.

    Finally I started screaming at the people from the cholesterol clinic when they called me. Finally they've stopped.

    You will find many doctors saying that people with Familial hypercholesterolemia die young, in their 20's to 40's, and a 40 year old is rare. Well, I'm 75 and not at all dead. On PB my TC is normally in the 300's. Of course the doctor's react badly, but they no longer say anything to me (there must be something in my record now that warns them off).

    Now we learn they cause diabetes, hypoglycemia, muscle loss, etc. in many people. And they're still being prescribed. ******

    Thank you for allowing me to rant.

    I took myself off one statin, prescribed after a heart attack, as soon as I figured the side effects were here to stay. Second lot did the same thing so no more for me. At 50 years of age I'd rather risk alternative treatments than certain debilitation for the rest of my life

    If people called my house to sell me statins I'd say some very criminal things to them. I'd want them to be afraid to call me. Well done!
