Statins and Diuretics Increase Risk of Diabetes

Here is a report that should get your attention:

“Both statins and diuretics were linked to new-onset diabetes, a 23% increased risk. In this study, use of beta-blockers and calcium channel blockers was not linked to diabetes.”–Medscape, April 21, 2014, Dr. Sandra Adamson Fryhofer.

If you are on these medications, be sure that your physician is monitoring you for diabetes. And see a naturopathic physician for potential treatment options.
