    Gosh darn it. Now we need a drug to enable people to keep taking statins without getting diabetes. I’m sure someone’s working on it as I type :shifty:

    Thanks for the link, BB. It makes me weep to think about all the miss-information re “good carbs” in the form of healthy grains that has been thrown at us over the last fifty years. How many lives have been affected adversely by this? Grr.
    By the way, I like your new avatar! Congrats on getting under the 200lb mark (!j

    No refs given but from David Diamond tweet, Pharma finally admitted that up to 20% of statin users will get side effects and some to the point that they can either not even tolerate a lower dose or that they cannot tolerate statin treatment at all. Since the advent of PCSK9s however that number has jumped to 40% of statin users. Be still my nasty suspicious mind.

    If I find the references I will edit to add.

    Edit. Found the ref but cannot access it.
