Does Pravastatin encourage elevated blood sugar?

I began taking pravastatin 6 months ago. At that time my fasting blood sugar was 89. 3 months later my fbs was 101, and 3 months later it is now 108. Is it possible pravastatin is causing my blood sugar to elevate? Although I have never had bld sugar problems , there is diabetes in my family.  Is it possible the med may have triggered my sugar level to elevate?

Not that I'm aware of. An irregular Lipid panel [high cholesterol, high triglycerides, high LDL and low HDL] are associated with above normal glucose levels.

To help prevent diabetes get your weight under control, lower your intake of high carb foods, restrict eating fatty animal foods, and exercise daily, if not at least 3x a week.
