François Mach i wsp. Adverse effects of statin therapy: perception vs. the evidence – focus on glucose homeostasis, cognitive, renal and hepatic function, haemorrhagic stroke and cataract. European Heart Journal online (dostępny pełen tekst)
Public perception of the adverse effects of statins is often exaggerated, in part as a consequence of media reports. While statins generally have an acceptable safety profile, questions have been raised regarding possible unintended effects on glucose homeostasis, and cognitive, renal, and hepatic function, as well as the risk for haemorrhagic stroke or cataract. This Consensus Panel Statement therefore addressed these persistent uncertainties.
