went for my diabetic review with the practice nurse (I had to concede and come out of denial with a HbA1c of 70 and start metformin ), She gave me a bit of a stern word when I said I'd stopped my statin and said I was putting myself at risk of heart attack and stroke from the diabetes. She said I needed to think about my own individual circumstances and not the statistics from some statin negative papers.
She said if I really didn't want to take statins to take plant stenols DAILY - they can reduce cholesterol by 10% she said
She agreed I was doing the right thing in trying the Blood Sugar Diet'
My BP is also now high... and she talked about starting me on meds for that
