HQC part of study that finds risk in potent cholesterol-lowering drugs

HQC Posted on Thursday, May 29, 2014 10:05 AM

Researchers at the Health Quality Council are part of a Canadian drug safety network that has found there is an increased risk of developing diabetes among people who take high potency statins--cholesterol-lowering drugs—after a heart attack or stroke. A news release about the study was issued today by the Canadian Network for Observational Drug Effect Studies (CNODES).

In the most comprehensive study of its kind, CNODES found a 15% relative increase in risk of diabetes within two years of starting treatment with high potency statins, as compared with low potency statins. This means that one additional case of diabetes was estimated to have occurred for every 350 patients treated with a high potency statin after a heart attack or stroke.
