I'm newly diagnosed. Type 2 and also have high BP and cholesterol. I'm on 20 mg Lipitor, Atorvistatin, and 1000 of Metformin. I take them all at once in the AM. I've been on them 8 wks. My blood sugars are still high (180-190) fasting in the morning. And my BP has been high too! (ie they're not working!) I know I am to blame because I haven't started exercising and Haven't changed my diet much—thought I had but realizing i am eating way too many carbs!! So now I have to get serious - that's why I'm here! I'm afraid I will need to up the doses of my meds. Its scary cuz i just started! im 51 yes old!! I see a cardiologist who set me up with all of this and who did the diagnosis… but I probably need a diabetic doctor. Do you suggest?? Also—this Lipitor is making me crazy—horrible chronic DRY COUGH!! I have to change it. dr wanted it cuz it was good for diabetics.
