What are Statins?

News: Administering ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) can stave off the tendency of statins to induce glucose intolerance and diabetes, a study by a group of researchers in China has found.

About Statins:
• Statins are prescription medications used to lower cholesterol levels in the blood.
• They function by inhibiting the liver enzyme responsible for cholesterol production.
• Excessive cholesterol can lead to arterial plaque buildup, potentially causing artery narrowing or hardening.
• Narrowed arteries may result in sudden blood clots, increasing the risk of heart attacks or strokes.
• Some statins can significantly reduce LDL (low-density lipoprotein or bad) cholesterol levels, aiding in preventing artery blockages.
• Statins have shown to lower the risk of heart disease and stroke.
• Additionally, they may help decrease the likelihood of certain blood clot formations.
• However, statins may interact with other medications, potentially increasing the risk of severe side effects like muscle damage.
