Type 2 is more related to other things, not if your family has it. It used to be related to age, with older people getting it, but lately even kids are getting it. Weight is a big factor. Don't deny it or brush it off as med related, treat it appropriately. Its a real concern if your blood sugar isn't coming down. While crestor can raise your A1c once its out of your system it should come down. How long have you been off of it? Are you taking any other medications?

I'm type II and take crestor as well and it shouldn't affect your blood sugars at all. With diabetes, the risk of heart attacks, strokes is greater and so to stop the crestor, especially before talking to your endocrinologist can be risky.
