In February 2012, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning regarding the potential for Lipitor to cause new-onset diabetes. The FDA also ordered Pfizer to change the label on Lipitor to reflect that individuals using the drug risk developing diabetes. Court records show that despite this change, plaintiffs allege that the warnings added to the Lipitor label remain inadequate. [fda.gov/drugs/drugsafety/ucm293101.htm, FDA, February 28, 2012]

A study published in the January 2012 issue of JAMA Internal Medicine suggested that post-menopausal women treated with statins, like Lipitor, may be at higher risk of developing new-onset diabetes. The following year, the British Medical Journal published a study that found patients who take Lipitor, or atorvastatin, faced a 22 percent increase in the risk of new-onset diabetes. A more recent study was published in the British Medical Journal that looked at data of nearly 137,000 patients from Canada, the U.S. and the UK, all of whom had been prescribed statins after they were hospitalized for a stroke, heart attack, or other cardiovascular problem between 1997 and 2011. Some 3,600 of those patients were diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes within two years of starting treatment, according to the study.
