Well the results came back and I am confused. My sugars have been eratic due to cortisone shots and going off my meds for a colonoscopy. My FBS was 143 and that was actually one of the better ones lately. Yet My A1C went from 5.9 ---> 6.0 . I expected to see a jump to maybe 6.5 or higher. How can my sugars be running higher all the time and my A1C barely budge ????
My TC was 170 but my LDL was 101 & HDL was 50, so I'm sure next week the Doc will want me to be taking a Statin again to get my LDL down. Tried some twice before with horrible side effects. Not going there again.
Can anyone else tell me if they think with my levels I need a statin. Actually I do take Red Yeast Rice ( a natural statin) with no side effects. Any thoughts to share ?
