    Former Royal doctor demands statins inquiry.

    Sir Richard Thompson spoke after a review into key trials concluded the pills were not effective in protecting against heart disease.

    The former president of the Royal College of Physicians and personal doctor to the Queen for 21 years said: “The statin data needs to be urgently scrutinised. We are very worried about it and particularly side-effect data which seems to have been swept under the carpet.

    “We have to be very wary of the doubts about statins produced by this new research and if we are wrong about widespread prescribing of this drug we have to stand up and say sorry.”

    The cholesterol-busting drugs are given to up to 12 million patients in the UK, or around one in four adults.

For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !
