    Hi Ruth welcome to the forum and I hope you are getting some support in your community which will help you through it. Forum is also great for support but you also need to follow your own gut feelings and that of your diabetic team too. I am with you on Statins stance Mine is roughly same as yours but I have enough aches and pains from a back injury eighteen months ago so I have no intention of adding to it. Of course you must always make up your own mind as we on here can only offer our opinions of what has worked for us. So good luck on your journey and look forward to seeing you on the forum again soon:)
