I haven't taken any of those categories of meds; however, when first Dx'd, every "Type2" med my doc prescribed gave me serious and intolerable side-effects. That ended when I started taking insulin (though, of course, withthe "side-effect" of weight gain). My cholesterol has been 'OK' - though higher than they typically like for a PWD; however, since a non-D would not take anything for this level and with my history of side-effects, my docs have not advised any meds for that. My BP has been OK, so far.
My father was on both BP meds and statins; however, due to the side-effects he experienced, he just stopped taking any of those meds. I suppose at his age, who's going to argue with him?
