[QUOTE=Arizona77;3313374]Relay depends on your situation. If your LDL is very high you will need to take a statin to bring it down. If you have low HDL and good LDL then go Niacin.[/QUOTE]

Thanx Arizona. I was diagnosed with hyperlipidemia 1 year back. I am taking statins since then.My levels 1 year back and present are given below:
1 yr. back -> Now
----------- ------
LDL 172 -> 62
HDL 45 -> 47
Total Chol. 256 -> 155
Triglycerides 196 -> 232

I think my HDL and LDL are OK but the problem is with my Triglycerides. It has not come down.

Great improvement over all. Yes you will need to get your Triglycerides down a bit more. Less than 150...Niacin works very well for that, so does supplementing with Omega 3 fish oil. Try and stay away from high sugar foods, carbs and alcohol. There is a possibility you could add a low dose of Niacin to bring your triglycerides more. However, it would be best to talk with your Doctor if you are going to be on Statin/Nicain therapy together. If that is the case your Doctor will closely monitor you.

All the best
