It's possible your blood sugar (blood glucose) level may increase when you take a statin, which may lead to developing type 2 diabetes. The risk is small but important enough that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning on statin labels regarding blood glucose levels and diabetes.

Media reports on the risks of statins — including for developing diabetes — can cause patients to be anxious and even stop taking a statin. Statins have been shown to reduce cardiovascular events and mortality, so the risk of diabetes should not interfere with patients taking them.

A different study found an even stronger link between statins and Type 2 diabetes. After studying 8,567 patients whose average age was 64 over the course of 15 years, they found that using the drugs was associated with a higher risk of high blood sugar and insulin resistance, along with a 38 percent higher risk of Type 2 diabetes.

Links with statin use and increased risks of memory trouble and development of type 2 diabetes could effect whether statin use will be expanded in future. A statin is one part of diabetes care and shouldn’t be used in place of maintaining a good diet, taking regular exercise, quitting smoking and cutting down on alcohol.

Patients taking statins could see a significant increase in their risk of developing type 2 diabetes, according to research published in Diabetes Metabolism Research and Reviews. The increased risk of diabetes is the direct result of two factors: worsened insulin resistance and rising blood sugar levels.
