... My last blood sample showed a triglyceride level of 600. My Ldl was 129 and HDl was around 40 if I remember correctly. About 2 or 3 hours before the test, I had eaten a bagel with GOBS of cream cheese. ... (1 replies)
... Need a suggestion. Last week I had lipid profile test for which i fasted 10 hours but i had 2 beers in dinner before fasting. It resulted with 600 triglycerides. ... (1 replies)
... I too have very high triglycerides. It is nothing you did wrong for your fasting etc. I don't drink and I sorta have a unhealthy diet. They tell me it's genetics, my father had a heart attack and died at age 43. When I first got tested and believe me they ran it twice it was 2,600...I was shocked thinking I did something wrong. So I take fish oil daily and a fenofibrate which... (4 replies)

... but there are two types of LDL, Lpa and Lpb, with Lpa being light fluffy type and Lpb being more dense and the type of more concern. With low triglyceride levels such as yours, the Lpa tends to predominate, which is good and may explain your slightly elevated LDL numbers. ... (3 replies)
... BUT, triglycerides do not respond well to medication. My cardiologist always says he can tell who is eating right and who isn't by their triglyceride level. ... (4 replies)
Originally posted by bluebytez: I have just been diagnosed with high cholesterol lately and I am quite lost on what to do. I am 25 years old and I am UNDERweight so I guess I must have gotten it from my family. ( My parents have high cholesterol too ) Anyway, my doctor prescribed three months of ZOCOR (10mg...

... I agree with everything Connie suggested. I'll also suggest fish oil, at 3 grams Omega 3/daily, broken up into 2-3 daily doses. It can help a lot with triglycerides. I'm not personally a fan of fibrates, but it's better than having a cholesterol over 600. Niaspan might be the better choice though, as it will also help HDL. As for why triglycerides are bad... they... (4 replies)
High Triglycerides
May 13, 2006
... Actually, yes and no. Dietary changes, increasing exercise and 145mg/day of Tricor did manage to get my Triglycerides down into the mid-to-high 300's. Given I started out in the high 600's, that's not insubstantial, and actually in the maximum observed reduction range for fenofibrate. It was the addition of the fish oil that finally got my TGs below 200, and for the last 6... (11 replies)
... Hi, I'm new to this forum, and would greatly appreciate any advice on how to proceed. I just got out of the hospital after being admitted for chest pains 2 days ago, and the heart tests (cardiac enzymes & nuclear stress test) came out okay (no heart attack or blockage), but my cholesterol levels are through the roof according to the cardiologist. Cause of chest pain still... (17 replies)
Fish Oil
Sep 26, 2004
... I was reading the following in an article about hypercholesterolemia: "If the patient's serum triglyceride level remains greater than or equal to 200 mg/dL after the LDL-C goal is reached, a secondary non–HDL-C goal is set. The non–HDL-C goal is the LDL-C goal plus 30 mg/dL. This goal may be achieved by increasing the statin dose, using a more efficacious statin, or adding... (7 replies)

... rdized to contain at least 4,000mcg allicin also is beneficial in promoting higher HDL. Another supplement to consider is pantethine, which can help improve both triglyceride and cholesterol numbers. But if you do decide to try pantethine, make sure the product contains the pharmaceutical grade version, known as Pantesin. ... (5 replies)
Advise Please

... A couple comments. It looks like these studies were geared to show niacin off in the best light. Why for example, compare with gemfibrozil rather than Lipitor? Even with this favorable comparison, the results for 2000 mg/day show 20% and 25% increases in HDL....this is, for example, a change from a wretched 30 to a wretched 36-37. Not enough to benefit most people. And then... (16 replies)
