The development of common diabetes complications that can lead to blindness and amputations could be reduced by taking statins, indicates new research. Results showed that people who used statins were less likely to be diagnosed with diabetic neuropathy, less likely to develop diabetic retinopathy, and had a reduced risk of gangrene compared to those who had not received statins.
