This study will assess if customizing the start dose of rosuvastatin appropriate for the degree of LDL-C reduction required, would achieve LDL-C target of ≤ 2.0 mmol/L quickly with either no titration or just one titration step after 6 weeks of therapy in type 2 diabetic patients previously treated with another statin and not at LDL-C targets.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Subjects Achieving Canadian Low Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C) Target Goals (i.e. LDL-C ≤ 2.0 mmol/L) After 12 Weeks of Rosuvastatin Therapy [ Time Frame: 12 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The number of subjects achieving Canadian Low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) target goals (i.e. LDL-C ≤ 2.0 mmol/L) over the total number subjects treated after 12 weeks of rosuvastatin therapy multiplied by 100

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Subjects Achieving Total Cholesterol (TC)/ High-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDLC) Ratio (i.e. TC/HDL < 4.0 mmol/L) at 6 and 12 Weeks of Treatment [ Time Frame: 6 and 12 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Proportion of subjects achieving total cholesterol (TC)/ High-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDLC) ratio (i.e. TC/HDL < 4.0 mmol/L) at 6 and 12 weeks of treatment

  • Mean Percent Change in Total Cholesterol (TC), Low Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C), High-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDLC) , TC/HDL-C Ratio, Non-HDL-C, Triglycerides and Apolipoprotein B (ApoB) /Apolipoprotein A1 (ApoA-1) Ratio [ Time Frame: 6 and 12 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Mean High Sensitivity C-reactive Protein (hsCRP) Value at Week 6 and 12 [ Time Frame: 6 and 12 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Incidence of Adverse Events and Abnormal Laboratory Values After 12 Weeks of Therapy [ Time Frame: 6 and 12 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
