[Extract] Waters et al. (1) discuss further evidence relating to increased incidence of new diabetes with statins. Superficially, the message from these and other studies is reassuring: statins have transformed the management of atherosclerotic disease; intensive therapy shows greater benefit than "standard" therapy; the rate of incident diabetes with statins is relatively small; benefits of statins are still apparent in patients with diabetes. It is further reassuring from this study (using data from the TNT [Treating to New Targets] and IDEAL [Incremental Decrease in Endpoints through Aggressive Lipid-lowering] studies) that those who develop diabetes are those who appear to be at risk.
