Hi,

Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. You’re on the right medication and hence need not worry. Crestor & tricor are medications which take care of all the parameters of lipid profile (triglycerides, LDL and HDL cholesterol). Your HbA1c is okay.

You should keep exercising which is extremely important in not only keeping you fit but also ensuring that the blood pressure, blood sugar and lipid profile remains under control. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
