Statins side effects: Drug use could increase blood sugars increasing risk of diabetes

In another study published in Cardiovascular Diabetology, the effects of statin use on fasting glucose in non-diabetic individuals was analysed alongside which statins affect a person’s fasting glucose the most.

The study noted: “More adherent and intensive use of statins was significantly associated with an increase in fasting glucose of non-diabetic individuals. In subgroup analysis of individual statins, use of atorvastatin, rosuvastatin, pitavastatin and simvastatin had significant association with increase in fasting glucose.

Pravastatin, lovastatin, and fluvastatin had non-significant trend toward an increased fasting glucose.

“Our findings suggest the medication class effect of statins inducing hyperglycemia.”
