Good morning. 9 months ago, I was informed I am type 2 diabetic. Ive since dropped 36 pounds, lowered my BP from 155/95 to 120/70 with proper nutrition and daily exercise. My fasting glucose readings have steadily dropped as have my pre and post dinner readings. I am controlling my type 2 with diet, no meds- yet.
My diabetic doctor tells me I must go on statins to lower my cholesterol levels ( theyve dropped more then 55% in the past 6 months. I am currently on BP medication, low dose. When reading manufacturers data, both BP meds and statin meds state these drugs can significantly raise glucose levels.
Anyone know about this?
