I've been taking a statin for a month, mainly to raise HDL and lower glucose. No ttl cholesterol or heart problems. Should I add co-q-10 to the mix?

In brief: No statin needed

Statin drugs deplete the body of coq10.
Anyone taking a statin should take coq10 but i prefer managing glucose and HDL with diet & exercise. They are very effective.

In brief: You can

There seems to be some good synergy between the 2 products.
Uh, by the way, statins may actually have some effects on sugar control and new onset diabetes, according to a recent study. They are extremely important drugs for primary and secondary prevention of heart disease and strokes, so keep at it. Just watch ur pie hole and exercise!
