Q: 1. Do the statins cause an increase in blood sugar levels?
2. Does the consumption of whey protein cause an increase in blood sugar levels?
Yes, it's possible statins may cause increases in blood sugar. It would be unusual for whey protein to cause elevated blood sugar levels but everyone is different. I recommend discussing with your doctor.
All the best,
