CBC News Canada reports: “Labels on all cholesterol-lowering statins will be updated to warn of a small increased risk of diabetes“
“Health Canada concluded that the risk of diabetes appears to be mainly in patients with pre-existing risk factors for diabetes, such as high levels of glucose or triglycerides, obesity or high blood pressure,”
One of the statins to be labelled is: Atorvastatin (Lipitor and generics). This is the best-selling statin, indeed medication, of all-time.
“The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a similar warning last February.”
My belief is that you should consider taking vitamin D as opposed to statins. Read my book.
