That's kind of a rare side effect with statins so am sorry you are in this boat. From what I've read, when it raises, it is usually because it was on the higher end of normal prior. And the statin DOES help prevent heart attack in a diabetic or prediabetic person making a slight elevation worth it. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/high-blood-cholesterol/in-depth/statin-side-effects/art-20046013 I would talk to your doctor about the best course of action. If supplementation will help, medication or a switch in statin.
