Thank you Bob, this is very informative. My husband had a check-up a month and a half ago, he had high cholesterol high blood sugar, one of his artery is blocked 15 percent. The cardiologist put him on Statins and blood sugar medication, he's been on them for a month, and I managed his diet very carefully, although he's been busy working but he took a relatively healthy diet. Last week, his lab test shows drop in LDL, still high in tri, but even higher with blood sugar. I thought it was the wine he drank, he loves drinking wine too much. But thank you for letting me know it can be the statins. He loves drinking wine all the time, his blood sugar was never this high.
