These “Doctor’s Orders” Could Give You Diabetes
If you’re like most people I know, you’ll work hard to reduce your risk of developing diabetes.
You’ll lose weight, drink more water… heck, you might even give up donuts and ice cream.
But, believe it or not, you may be doing something RIGHT NOW that could increase your diabetes risk by as much as 71 percent.
And your doctor probably told you to do it.
Millions of adults are taking cholesterol-lowering statin drugs under doctor’s orders right now.
I think Big Pharma would put these meds in the water supply if they could.
But research is proving… again… that statins can put you on the fast track to diabetes.
Scientists recently looked at more than 3,000 patients from nearly 30 clinics across the U.S., and followed up with them for 10 years.
Turns out that the folks taking statin drugs increased their risk of developing diabetes by a whopping 30 percent.
And it gets worse…
Because this isn’t the first… or second… or third time that statins have been shown to increase the risk of diabetes.
A study published a few years back showed that women who used statins had a 71 percent elevated risk for diabetes compared to those not using statins.
And one published earlier this year showed that statins increase the risk of diabetes by more than 50 percent in older women.
The risk is well-documented.
The question is, is it worth it?
Well, let’s see… Statins are known to increase the risk of cataracts, musculoskeletal disorders, neurodegenerative diseases, and cancer.
Yet according to a recent report that looked at data from DOZENS of studies over two DECADES of time… statins don’t extend your lifespan.
On the other hand, diabetes is the leading cause of blindness, amputations, neuropathy, and kidney failure. It also contributes to stroke and heart attack risk.
So you tell me…is it worth it?
If you’re taking statins right now, talk to your doc about getting off.
Despite everything you’ve heard, they are NOT saving your life.
But they could be shortening it.
To a brighter day,
