Statins may double the risk for type 2 diabetes.
Please do not stop taking your prescription meds! Do know that high blood pressure, high blood sugars, and metabolic syndrome symptoms can be managed through lifestyle activities and habits. Prescription medications are extremely valuable in managing your health, but they should never be the sole method!
"The analysis revealed that people who took statins were more than twice as likely to receive a diabetes diagnosis than those who did not take the medication. Additionally, people who took statins for longer than 2 years were more than three times as likely to develop diabetes."
