My dad has just been diagnosed with Diabetes and High Cholesterol. His numbers:
Glucose Fasting 7.2 (normal 3.5-5.4)
1 Hour 14.4
2 Hours 12.8 (normal 3.6 - 7.7)
Result consistent with Diabetes Mellitus
Cholesterol 5.5 (normal <5.5)
Triglyceride 1.6 (<1.8)
HDL Chol 1.0 (1.1 - 3.5)
Coronary Risk Ratio 5.5 (<3.5)
LDL Chol 3.8 (<3.5)
Doc has put dad on Crestor Rosuvastatin 5mg - 1 at night.
I told dad to stop taking this drug. What are people's thoughts on my dad's results. They are sending him to get diabetic education!! That's a laugh - I've got a list of all the high carb foods they want him to eat!!
