Heart Med DOUBLES Diabetes Risk (WHAT?!)
Gain a little weight or get up there in age, and mainstream docs will INSTANTLY take an interest in your ticker.
They’ll warn you to eat “better” and exercise more — and at the very end of your appointment, they’ll scribble down something that looks an awful lot like an Rx.
Only, it’s more like a DEATH SENTENCE!
See, even though they’ve been linked serious muscle pain, liver damage, dementia, and more, cholesterol-lowering statins are still the darlings of heart docs everywhere…
And unfortunately, it’s time we add ANOTHER condition to statins’ ever-growing list of side effects…
Because taking these meds has been shown to CAUSE life-wrecking DIABETES!
In a brand-new study, published in Diabetes/Metabolism Research and Reviews in May, Ohio State researchers analyzed medical records and data from thousands of Midwestern adults (averaging 46 years old) at risk of heart disease.
At the start of the study, none of these folks were on statins… but during the three-year observation period, more than 700 of them were eventually prescribed one of these meds…
And for those folks, diabetes risk SOARED.
Compared to non-users, researchers observed that people on statins were more than TWICE AS LIKELY to develop diabetes!
That’s right. Their risk actually DOUBLED…
But that’s not even the worst news.
Folks who were on these nasty heart meds for two years or longer had an even greater risk of diabetes — TRIPLE that of non-users!
It’s almost unbelievable, but this isn’t the first we’ve heard of it.
Back in January, I filled you in on the secret war that’s been raging in the medical community… a years-long argument over these meds and their disastrous effects… and I told you about the groundbreaking data that SQUASHED the mainstream’s heart-med defense.
Basically, it confirmed that statins may LEAD TO DIABETES by limiting the creation of brown adipose tissue, which regulates thermogenic (or heat-producing) activity in your body by converting sugar and fat into heat and energy.
In other words, that brown adipose tissue BOOSTS your metabolism… and without it, you’re more likely to develop diabetes or become overweight!
Knowing that, it’s no surprise that Ohio State scientists saw diabetes risk SKYROCKET in statin users…
And it’s not hard to know what you’ve got to do next.
Hang up those heart meds.
Many experts argue that statins’ effectiveness at preventing heart disease and heart-related death has been grossly OVER-EXAGGERATED – and if they CAUSE diabetes (which ups your risk of heart issues), what’s the point?
Talk to your doc about stopping them safely and as soon as possible.
