Our expert says:
I do not suggest that you substitute a statin with a natural remedy. Statins are well researched and lower your risk for a heart attack and strokes. If you stop taking the statin, you run a risk for these complications. Yes, it is documented that statins are associated with the development of type II diabetes (1 in 498 patients) but the benefit of statins far outweigh the risk for type II diabetes.
