Statins and risk of incident diabetes: a collaborative meta-analysis of randomised statin trials.

Individuals taking statins are prone to develop type 2 diabetes.

This study was carried out to determine the association between statin therapy and type 2 diabetes risk. Researchers conducted a thorough meta-analysis on data extracted from published and unpublished studies. They found a slight elevation in type 2 diabetes risk among patients taking statins. The findings of this research work reveal that diabetes mellitus is more likely to occur in patients who take statins.
