The effect of atorvastatin and simvastatin on vitamin D, oxidative stress and inflammatory marker concentrations in patients with type 2 diabetes: a crossover study.

Abstract

The pleiotropic effect of statins may be mediated in part through raising 25 hydroxy vitamin D (25OHD) concentrations. It has also been shown that an increase in oxidative stress and inflammatory markers are a feature of the patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM). A cross-over study of 26 patients with T2DM taking either simvastatin 40 mg or atorvastatin 10… (More)
