High Numbers
Aug 3, 2015
So my physical came back with everything high that should be low, and low on what should be high. Doctor has put me on Fenofibrate, 145mg. I tried two different statins in the past, but had to come off because of severe side effects. I do not know anything about Fenofibrate. My numbers were Chol 309, Tri 177, HDL 46, Chol/HDL 6.7, Non-HDL-Chol 263, and LDL Cal 227; so very high and somewhat low on the HDL. I am 56, low exercise, 5'1" and 150, post menopause. My father has a history of high cholesterol and tryglycerides, plus diabetes. My sugar levels are normal. My Vitamin D is low (don't have numbers) and my EOS% is low .6 (not sure what that means.) I recently had Lifeline Screening and my carotid artery was normal as was my c reactive protein.

Really concerned about side effects from this new medication. Thoughts on alternatives, or should I stick with new meds for awhile? I also, have osteopenia and have had severe side effects from bisphosphonates as well. What to do?!
