I knew there was a reason my statin prescription was sitting on my desk, unopened:
"The new labeling will also warn doctors and patients that statins can cause hyperglycemia, an increase in blood sugar levels and increase the risk of Type 2 diabetes."
Sigh. So why are they pushing them so hard on T2 diabetics?
My doctor has been really pushing them, but I was feeling anxious and unsure about them and wanted to study the pros and cons more before I started taking them.
Anything that says "avoid grapefruit juice" on it makes me nervous. Why would eating a natural citrus fruit be a problem? Possible muscle damage? Possible liver damage? What?
