Can Statins Increase Diabetes Risk: At present, the number of cholesterol and diabetes patients is increasing rapidly. These two problems are badly affecting crores of people across the world. Cholesterol is a substance found in our blood, if its quantity exceeds normal, it gets accumulated in the blood arteries. Because of this the risk of heart attack and stroke increases. On the other hand, diabetes is a disease in which insulin resistance develops in the person's body. Because of this the blood sugar becomes uncontrollable. Both diseases can be fatal.

Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Report According to this, statins are used to control high cholesterol. By consuming this medicine, the amount of cholesterol produced in the liver reduces and the cholesterol accumulated in the blood arteries starts coming out. Apart from this, this medicine increases good cholesterol by reducing bad cholesterol. With this medicine, the risk of heart disease in cholesterol patients is reduced and the plaque deposited in the arteries is removed. This improves the supply of oxygenated blood to the heart and brain. However, this medicine should be taken on the advice of a doctor, because this medicine is not necessary for every cholesterol patient.

Statins are considered very effective in reducing cholesterol and preventing heart disease, but their consumption increases the risk of diabetes. Many researches have revealed that taking statins increases blood sugar because this medicine affects the functioning of insulin. Taking this medicine for a long time can disturb the functioning of insulin in people's body and people can become victims of type 2 diabetes. You will be surprised to know that diabetic patients have double the risk of heart disease compared to other people. In such a situation, this medicine can also be dangerous.

Now the question is whether people should resort to statins to reduce cholesterol? On this, experts say that despite the serious risks of this medicine, it is recommended for diabetic and non-diabetic people suffering from high cholesterol, but the doctor decides according to the condition of the patient. Many people believe that there is more danger in staying away from this medicine than there is in taking it. If cholesterol increases excessively, it can cause heart attack and stroke. In such a situation, cholesterol patients should take this medicine only after consulting their doctor.
