Stopping statins may cause rebound that triples risk of death

ovide a similar protective effect when patients were pretreated for at least six months prior to hospitalization, says Hamm.

There was no evidence that the discontinuation of the statins was related to the risk profile of the patients, says Hamm. Risk factors, including baseline cholesterol levels and troponin T levels at the beginning of the study were similar in patients who remained on statins and those who stopped taking statins after admission.

Troponin T is a protein released by heart cells damaged because they do not get enough oxygen. Evaluating the protein in the blood of someone with accelerating chest pain provides a good indication of whether the patient is likely to suffer a heart attack in the near future.
