Increased cholesterol/triglycerides go hand in hand with elevated blood sugars and they will come down with tighter control of blood sugars (though not always to goal).

Oops. Just to add on, there is a recent study showing the cholesterol-lowering agent (statin), Zocor, can prevent 1st heart attacks in diabetics regardless of their initial cholesterol levels. This will almost certainly prove to be a class-effect, meaning all statins (Lipitor, Pravachol, Lovastatin, etc.) will be beneficial in this regard. This is a pretty big deal, and as a matter of fact, the statins have been proven to be quite a boon in the prevention (both primary and secondary) in the fight against heart disease.
