Mainstream Advice SKYROCKETS Diabetes Risk 3X?!
Collateral damage. I talk about it all the time.
You’re trying to do something good for your health, but you cause other problems in the process.
This is a MAJOR problem with Big Pharma’s so-called solutions.
Here’s a prime example:
There’s a highly popular drug that’s supposed to help your heart… but it TRIPLES your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Don’t fall for this scam.
Cholesterol-lowering statins have been around for 30 years—and that’s exactly how long I’ve been warning my patients to STAY AWAY from these dangerous drugs.
These “poison pills” come with life-wrecking side effects like muscle pain, neuropathy, liver damage, and memory loss.
And now there’s another “side effect” you can add to the list:
They dramatically increase your risk of type 2 diabetes.
Researchers tracked more than 4,500 people over a four-year period.
Those taking statins for shorter periods of time had double the risk of diabetes, while those taking them for more than two years had triple the risk.
The fact that there was a dose-dependent relationship—meaning the longer you’re taking them, the higher the risk—indicates that there is a distinct cause/effect relationship.
As usual, the study authors didn’t warn people against taking statins. Instead, they cautioned that a study like this should serve as a warning—a heads up—that you could be at risk for developing diabetes.
At which point, they’d just recommend putting you on even more drugs.
It’s a prescription drug merry-go-round.
And I say it’s about time to hop off!
Here’s the thing. This isn’t the first, second, or even third study to show that statins increase diabetes risk.
Diabetes isn’t some irritating or inconvenient side effect like nausea or itchiness.
Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness, amputations, neuropathy, and kidney failure. It also contributes to stroke and heart attack risk—an ironic twist, since statins are supposed to be protecting your heart.
Before letting your doctor talk you into taking statins for the rest of your life… talk to him about drug-free options that will actually help your heart AND reduce your diabetes risk.
You shouldn’t have to trade one for the other.
