High Cholesterol Board Index


As cehawk mentioned, there are drugs that specifically target triglycerides.
You will invariably need to be put on at least one med in light of your past heart surgery.
What specifically was the surgery for, clogged coronary arteries?

An extremely high triglyceride level coupled with low HDL is called Metabolic syndrome or Syndrome X and it is HIGHLY correlated with heart disease...and diabetes and overweight, especially with abdominal fat. It REALLY is a dangerous situation for anyone with heart problems.

IF your doctor wants to try a statin, I think Vytorin be a good first place to start.

Your doctor in 2005 was incompetent in ignoring these horrible numbers. In addition, unless they did a directly measured LDL (unlikely), they don't add up properly.
