I have taken crestor 40mg for several years. Two years ago I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. About ten days ago I ran out of crestor. I didn't have any refills left until I see my primary care dr. I took crestor at bedtime and since I have been out of it my blood sugar reading in the morning have been great -much lower than normal. Could this be the result of not taking Crestor?
