... Hello folks, I'm posting here because my Doctor wants me on Lipitor for high LDL but if possible I would rather go the diet route. Not asking anyone to contradict my Doctor, but is it possible diet is playing a role? I know LDL has a BIG genetic component, but both parents are in their late 70s and have never had any heart issues. Here are my stats: Total cholesterol: 212... (3 replies)

... All I can suggest is to lose weight, exercise, and watch your diet. If you can't control your numbers naturally your doctor may prescribe Crestor and/or prescription strength fish oil (Vascepa) as mine did. Since my last post, and after 10 days of Crestor 10mg and Vascepa and low to moderate alcohol consumption my total cholesterol went down to 109 and trig to 128 (from... (4 replies)

... Looking back at my past few blood work exams, I went from Triglycerides of 110, then 8 months later it was 215. What would cause it to raise this fast? ... (4 replies)
... Time for me to jump back on my rant against the LDL calculation formula bandwagon. The thought that by raising trigs you can improve your LDL is just crazy and I am yet to be educated on how this phenomenon works. We know high trigs are not good and we know high LDL is not good, but you can lower LDL by doing what you don't want to do and that is raising your trigs. If you... (11 replies)

... I am a 49 year old female and find myself in a place that scares me and I would appreciate any help. I am about 50 pounds overweight and for the past 2 yrs have been on dyazide, zocor, and norvasc for HTN and high choles.

... My wife has diabetes and high chol. & Trigs Her blood level was 10.5 Chol =300 trigs =over 500 hdl was 44. She takes 500 mg glucophage a day. The Dr put her on lovastatin that did not touch the trigs. So he put her on tricor which dropped the trigs but she was found to have gall stones of cholesterol so all cholesterol meds had to be stopped. I did some research and... (20 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...

... Okay, I have recently had some bloodwork done and my Triglycerides were in the high 300's, LDL was normal, Total Choles. was 215, and the HDl was considered to be low. ... (11 replies)
... Those newer numbers aren't that bad. In fact, according to the guidelines, if you have NO other risk factors (diabetic, coronary disease, high bp,etc), you should not require medication at all! Also, in my humble opinion :D , he should have started you on 10mg first and then test. He must to liver tests if he puts you on Lipitor! (9 replies)

I had uncontrolled hypertension from 1992-1997. In 1997, I had a routine job physical and my cholesterol was 269 and triglycerides were >400. I went onto Tricor at that time. My weight was consistently 215-225. The... (14 replies)

Doctor started me on 40mg, but had to lower to 20 since my liver levels were elevated. For the last two months, I have started having very heavy fatigue, my arms and legs (all four) are tingling (almost constantly) am increasingly light headed, the muscles in... (17 replies)
