Statins and higher blood sugar

I recently was prescripbed pravastatin and I notice a higher number when I test after a night of fasting in my Blood Glucose. Is there a posibility that could cause the rise.

Hello,
Pravastatin is not known overall to cause a rise in glucose levels, but people are individual sso it is possible this may be an effect unique to you. Kee a close eye on it and speak to your doctor if it continues or worsens.
take care.
