Lipitor diabetes lawsuits are being filed for consumers who took this dangerous medication. Lipitor is a statin, and works by inhibiting a protein in the liver that makes a majority of the cholesterol in the body. Because the liver cannot make cholesterol, it takes it up from the bloodstream, which lowers levels in the blood.
There have been increasing complaints about Lipitor causing diabetes. Research has found that Lipitor reduces the levels of a protein that help cells use insulin, the hormone that allows all the cells in the body to take up glucose.
Lipitor can cause or increase the risk of diabetes. This is because it lowers levels of the protein that uses insulin, so the cells in the body are not able to use glucose for energy. This leads to type 2 diabetes because the body is producing insulin but not able to properly respond to it.
