Study: Diabetics on Statins More Likely to Die From COVID

Study: Diabetics on Statins More Likely to Die From COVID

Here are the highlights of the article:

  • People with diabetes who also take statins have a higher risk of mechanical ventilation and death when hospitalized with COVID-19

  • According to the researchers, “… the potentially deleterious effects of routine statin treatment on COVID-19-related mortality demands further investigation”

  • Statins do not protect against cardiovascular disease and increase your risk of other health conditions, including heart disease, liver and muscle damage and cataracts

  • Consider making lifestyle choices to balance your cholesterol ratios, which are more important to evaluate your risk of heart disease. Include changes to control your blood sugar to reduce or eliminate the need for medication
