Apparently there is enough of a link between Lipitor and diabetes that people can get paid from the drug company.
It makes sense to me: the liver makes cholesterol and it stores glucose. If you take a drug that alters the production of cholesterol in the liver, you may also be changing the way the liver stores glucose.
It seems quite simple to me. What is not so simple is why only women can join the lawsuit. I guess whatever study the lawyers are using for evidence shows the stronger link between diabetes and Lipitor in women, but not enough for men.
I am pretty sure that if the link is there for women, it is there for men, too.
