Many Studies Link Lipitor to Type-2 Diabetes
In 2011, a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology looked at data from three large clinical trials. Researchers reported that patients taking a high-dose of Lipitor had a greater risk of developing diabetes. The trial looked at almost 4,000 adults who did not have diabetes but did have a history of stroke.
In a Canadian study, researchers found that among six popular cholesterol-lowering medications, Lipitor increased the risk for diabetes the most at 22%. Researchers noted that the likelihood for diabetes increases among Lipitor users that already have existing risk factors for diabetes, although diabetes can develop in anyone.
In addition, Lipitor and statins have been linked to other health problems in the past such as:
After these studies were released, the FDA announced a statement on Lipitor and other statins. The FDA announced that taking these drugs, especially in higher doses, might have an increased risk of developing diabetes.
The FDA also announced that the labels of the products in question must reflect the link between diabetes and statins. In addition, the FDA stated that doctors should assess patients’ blood sugar levels once a patient has begun taking Lipitor or another statin.
