I have just spotted this article in today's Daily Mail newspaper. For ladies who haven't seen it yet please see below:
'Statins the cholesterol-lowering drugs, could be used to treat endometriosis.
Around two million women in Britain have the condition, in which tissue that is normally found on the lining of the womb grows elsewhere. The tissue goes through the same process of thickening and shedding, but has no way of leaving the body, leading to pain, swelling and sometimes fertility problems.
Current treatments include painkillers, hormone treatment and surgery. Statins have also been found to have anti-inflammatory effects and it's thought they may help lessen the pain in women with endometriosis.
In a pilot trial at Mount Sinai Hospital, Canada, women will take a statin drug, pravastatin sodium, daily for 3 months.'
Maybe we should 'watch this space'? You never know!
