Statins may lower amputation risk in diabetes
Some cholesterol-lowering drugs may help reduce the risk of amputation for those with diabetes, according to a new study. The study focused on more than 80,000 patients in the United States Department of Veterans Affairs healthcare system with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Over a five-year period, those patients were monitored for cholesterol-lowering agents, diabetic medication, A1c levels, body mass index, and both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
