ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study which investigated whether intensive-dose statin therapy increases risk for incident diabetes mellitus (DM). Data were researched from MEDLINE, EMBASE/Excerpta Medica, and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials. It was found that intensive-dose statin therapy increases risk for incident diabetes mellitus, but it reduces cardiovascular events compared with moderate-dose therapy.
