I have been on statins for 8 years , my diet was poor, smoked, little or no exercise diagnosed diabetes type 2, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. I quit smoking, lost 3-4 stone and overhauled my diet and exercised a little more. For the last six years my cholesterol has been 3.8.
Two months ago I was started on Insulin as due to Thyroidectmomy/B12 my pancreas has packed up and wasn't responding to any tablets. since starting insulin my latest blood test show cholesterol has increased to 4.8, diet hasnt changed other than Ive reduced snacking and only have a snack ( Fruit or crisps) with my lunch.
Im on a number of tablets for various things.
Hydroxocobalamin 1mg/1ml solution for injection ampoules Every 12 Weeks
Humulin M3 Insulin Pens
Thanks for any input
