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?
Can Crestor affect my blood-glucose readings?

it has been reported that statins raise your blood sugar levels and your gp could mistakenly think you have type 2 diabetes... so if you stop the statins your blood sugar levels could go back to normal
Yes, Crestor can cause high blood sugar. Endocrine side effects including diabetes mellitus have been reported with Crestor.
