In letter to the editor “Comment on: Statin use and risk of diabetes mellitus” authors found the statement “pravastatin 40 mg/d reduced the risk of diabetes by 30% in West of Scotland Coronary Prevention study” erroneous. As per our opinion the statement is right but had been referenced incorrectly.
Core tip: The statement “Pravastatin has shown to decrease the risk of developing diabetes by 30%” is correct and had been wrongly referenced in “Statin use and risk of diabetes mellitus” by Chogtu et al.
