I've read that statins may cause diabetes in some folks? So if a pt. Is able to safely stop statins, is there a chance their blood sugar could drop?

Low risk. Statins do raise the risk of diabetes slightly, however you should not discontinue the medication without consulting your doctor, You may discuss using a different statin. See this site for info. http://www.webmd.com/cholesterol-management/news/20130523/could-statins-raise-diabetes-risk.
