Lay advisers are needed to help advise on the design and findings of this research
Our study aims first to understand the association between long-term statins use and LDL cholesterol control. Then, we will verify how effective this control is to reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Finally, we will examine if developing collateral diabetes is a real risk that needs to be tackled at the time statins are prescribed. The findings of our study will inform both prescribers and long-term users of statin.
