A new meta-analysis of over 90,000 patients being treated with statin drugs showed that statin use increases the risk of developing diabetes by 9%. Currently, cholesterol levels out of the "normal range" are routinely treated with statins. These drugs have many problems including muscle pain, lever problems, increased risk of dementia, and increased risk of sudden cardiac death. Add a 9% increase in diabetes rates (diabetes already affects 8% of the US population), and the picture is complete: statins are causing trouble.
