... Has anyone had any good results with this drug to lower triglycerides. My triglycerides were 650 seven months ago. I've gotten them down to 400 with a vege diet and fish pills. My dr. tried lovastatin 4 months ago, but it raised my liver numbers. ... (0 replies)
... MG, I'm not on cholesterol meds now - had been on Lopid or Lipitor for 12 years or so, but stopped them 15 months ago due to muscle pains. I've recently been eating a lot of brown-rice with corn mixed in... I was trying to get away from meats, and started switching to this.

... MG, Congrats on the reduction to 131 mg/dL; however, in time, I would bet that the bar is lowered to closer to 100 mg/dL as the optimal range. During this reduction from 650 mg/dL down, did you change any other factors such as weight, or exercise intensity? Was the reduction accomplished in conjunction with any meds? (23 replies)

Not to worry, at one point, my HDL was at 28 and it's now at 36. Also, my triglycerides were once at 650 and are now at 135 (because of alcohol/carb/trans fat reduction). (12 replies)
... My cholestrol was 650 and triglycerides were over 2000 before I started meds to lower it. It is now 207. To get it down to that level, I take 2000 MG Niaspan, 10 MG Crestor, and 1950 MG Welchol daily. ... (13 replies)
