Statins are diabetogenic--myth or reality?

Individuals on statins may have an increased likelihood of developing diabetes mellitus.

This purpose of this study was to examine whether a relationship exists between statin intake and the development of type 2 diabetes. Researchers reviewed evidence obtained from clinical trials and meta-analyses. They observed that statins increased the risk of developing diabetes mellitus. The findings of this study support the current opinion of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that statin use is associated with elevated diabetes mellitus risk.
