The main purpose of the study was to compare the effects of rosuvastatin and colestimide on metabolic parameters, adipokines, and markers of oxidative stress and diabetic nephropathy in patients with type 2 diabetes complicated by hyperlipidemia. DESIGN A total of 40 patients with type 2 diabetes complicated by hyperlipidemia were… CONTINUE READING
