Took niacin for something like 15 yrs -- 2g per day. This was with a hashimoto's thyroiditis dx, but no diabetes dx.

First thing internist said when I got diabetes dx was, get off the niacin. I did, but 6 mos later tried it again. Stopped after 3 mos -- horrible, erratic unpredictable BG's. I quit it for good and threw it away. I know it is supposed to help, but it sure was not helping me any.

I eat saturated fats to raise my HDL now. And walk a lot. And 40 mg simvastatin, cut in half from the prescription of 89 ... Not sure about lp(a) since my docs do not measure it.
