Strategies to optimize statin treatment for muscle symptoms

Added: 30.08.2017 13:31 | 1 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

10 to 20 percent of patients taking statins report muscle-related symptoms including aches, pains and cramps that prevent the use of recommended doses. Patients who have difficulty taking statins have a high risk of cardiovascular events, resulting in higher health care costs. To address these concerns, researchers are providing approaches to optimize cardiovascular risk reduction for these patients.
