High Cholesterol Message Board

High Cholesterol Board Index

Hubby was the one who went off the Lipitor and when his results came back after a month, his cholesterol went from 149 to 205, but his trigs. were over 400. The cardiologist was the one who wants him to take just the Niaspan, but he hasn't started it yet. Like I said, he feels so good being off the Statins I think he is leary of taking this too. I don't want to push him, but also don't want his numbers getting out of control. I was switched from the Lipitor to Baycol, as the Lipitor had HORRIBLE side effects for me. Baycol took my C from 285 to 190, HDL from 53 to 55, LDL from 212 to 110 and trigs. from 122 to 152. Hubby didn't get his HDL or LDL numbers from the dr. Guess he will have to call and ask. Like I said, he has the type 2 diabetes and also has high blood pressure. After I print this stuff out I will show it to him so he can get going and try and get those trigs. down. I also took down your email addy as I just might get in touch to try and understand this more. I am so new to all this, it boggles my mind sometimes. Thanx again, and God bless.
