Statins and Risk of Diabetes Mellitus Type 2

A Systematic Review of the Literature


By Rangin Haji, Carly Hammell and Danielle Theis

Under the supervision of Dr. Victoria Minakova and Dr. Aleksandar Dusic




From the abstract:

Several historical studies have indicated a relationship between statin use and the occurrence of new-onset diabetes mellitus type II. The aim of this study was to determine how significant this risk is, and whether there are any underlying factors that should be considered when prescribing statins. This will add to the current body of knowledge and potentially provide valuable clinical guidance in terms of whether careful monitoring or screening of patients taking statin medication is warranted, in order to mitigate the risk of incident diabetes.
