Statins, the famous cholesterol-lowering drugs can lessen the risks of pancreatitis in people, who have higher blood fat levels, experts' advice.
Researchers recently ran a study to understand if they can lower the risks of pancreatitis, the illness that has 25,000 hospital admissions every year and is responsible for almost 950 deaths in a year.
They found that statins, the cholesterol-lowering drugs, which are today being commonly taken by millions of Britons as a treatment to lessen their risks of heart disease and strokes can, do that magic.
Earlier also, some studies were run to understand the effects of Statins but at that time, the researchers claimed that the drugs can trigger the risks of inflammation and increase it, but what has been found recently from the new review stands all opposite from the earlier findings.
Dr. David Preiss, from the University of Glasgow led the above review study, in which he analyzed data of 16 studies. It included all those people, who were at risks of suffering from pancreatitis as they had higher levels of triglycerides, fats in the blood stream.
He noticed that people, who took statins rather than a placebo were at 21 percent lower risks of suffering from pancreatitis.
