Abstract

Objective: Statins are widely used to lower LDL-cholesterol levels. Two of the most important side effects are hepatotoxicity and myopathy. Myopathy is rare and characterized by widespread muscle pain, fatigue, and increased serum creatine phosphokinase levels. In this study, we aimed to show if isokinetic muscle strength is affected in patients on statin therapy.
