Now you may wonder why I write about a cholestrol lowering drug on a diabetic site. Well, most of you know I prefer the path less traveled. I won't go into the whys, but my doctor took me off Crestor. Within a week my BS levels of 250-425 were gone. I had to start monitoring for low BS. Now my BS are more like 150 (you may say, "That is still high", but that was low for me 2 months ago). I have reduced my 70/30 insulin to 50 units in the AM and 50 in the PM, down from 70. I am no longer taking metformin twice a day. Now I take a 1/2 dose as needed. My general aches and pains have diminished. So if you BS is unexplainably high, maybe you need to look at the other drugs you are taking.
