Controversial statements in the article concerning us.
"Not giving statins to patients with documented atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease is bad clinical practice and goes against evidence based medicine....it has not been proven that statin drugs reduce mortality among healthy people with increased risk of heart disease, except for individuals with diabetes and those with the relatively rare disorder of familial hypercholesterolemia."
Now comes the controversy.
"Impaired glucose tolerance found in simvastatin treated patients is in agreement with earlier findings of impaired insulin sensitivity with statin treatment. "
A good article though.
I know many of us including myself on lchf don't take statins.
