NICE calls for wider use of statins

February 12, 2014 1:46 pm

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has confirmed that millions more people should be prescribed cholesterol-lowering statins to protect them against heart attacks and strokes. Cardiovascular disease accounts for around 180,000 deaths per year and new guidelines issues by NICE suggest that people with a risk of as low as 10% should be put on statins, compared to the previous 20% risk recommendation.
