... Those changes will help reduce your triglycerides, true. But will those alone reduce them enough? For some people, the answer is no - for whatever reason our bodies are in overdrive mode when it comes to triglyceride production by our liver.

... Hi New Choices, It seem that carbs have alot of sugar content, so it makes sense for all of us to cut back on them. I don't generally eat alot of them, but some previous poster had suggested gluten-free pasta and oat based products (bread and crakers) instead of the "healthy whole wheat" variety. I tried the pasta, and it is really good...can't tell the difference really.... (30 replies)
... Okay, I'll be (probably too) blunt, but he is a heart attack waiting to happen. If he wants to live beyond another 5 or 10 years, he has no choice but to start changing his eating habits NOW. I know how hard that is; I've been there (and I come from a similar food tradition: rural Missouri, settled by Kentuckians). But it is possible. AND HE HAS NO CHOICE. (Yes, I'm... (4 replies)

... Okay so let me get this straight. I quit eating sugars, cut out carbs, and stop drinking. That will make my TG's go down. What the heck am I taking meds for? (9 replies)
... For people with high triglycerides, alcohol seems to be the big factor. Even mild, occasional drinking seems to cause plasma trig levels to shoot up, even when on medication to lower them (note that alcohol not only reduces your body's ability to break down triglycerides, but, at the same time, it induces the liver to make more). When I was in cardiac rehab, the... (9 replies)
... Well yes, the meds will help with baseline triglyceride levels. That is why you are told to abstain from eating or drinking anything (except water) for about 12 hours prior to your blood test. But, as Lenin said, triglyceride levels will temporarily spike upwards after ingesting certain foods and/or drinks. (9 replies)

... The Tricor does bring down the Tri's but for a while I was drinking with it so they never quite made it under 150. I have been fasting from it for a couple of weeks and excercising too. ... (11 replies)
... Have your Trigs been high all along? From what I understand, high Trigs and low HDL seem to go hand in hand, as my husband has the same problem. He is not a drinker, but has type 2 diabetes. Sugar is DEFINITELY a culprit in high Trigs., so go VERY easy on anything starchy, or sugary, as they will send your Trigs up. Stay away from processed foods, white potatoes and white rice...
