Hi All,

Three months ago my doctor had my blood tested (I was in for borderline high blood pressure) and my cholesterol was 205, my triglycerides were 130. A couple of weeks ago I had the same blood test and the Tri's were 534!!!!! She wants me to have the test again in case there was a mistake made at the lab (having blood drawn tomorrow).

My question is, is it possible for the Tri's to go up this much in 2-3 months????? If so, what would cause it? I am a (relatively) healthy 36 year old woman. During the time between blood tests I lost 20 pounds in the hopes of bringing my blood pressure down naturally. I am still about 15-20 pounds overweight but have been eating pretty good. Lots of salads and chicken, etc. I have had absolutely no other medical problems except the blood pressure issues. My doctor put me on Tenormin, could that be causing the triglyceride problem? Could I have eaten something the day before that caused this? It is a 12 hour fasting blood test so I assume that is sufficient.

Sorry that my thoughts are jumbled but I'm flipping out a little.

Thanks all!
