[b]What might the correlation be between taking statins to lower cholesterol, developing diabetes2, and then developing a leison below the eye macula? I've been taking Lipitor 20mg for many years....and am trying to muster up the courage to wean myself from taking lipitor and substitute with a natural approach. About a year ago I was given the pejorative diagnosis of diabetic 2, and I refused to take any meds for that. Now the eye doc says I have a leison below the eye macula and wants me to see a lazer eye specialist. I have found nothing but negative stuff about zapping the eye with a laser. Do others see a correlation between all of this?
