... statement made before, but I don't see how you can come to that conclusion by just looking at a simple mathematical equation.

... Well the dr. had a hissy fit over the LDL and got very uptight over the LDL, what else is new, they have hissy fits over everything!! I still take them, just not every day. ... (17 replies)
... It's conceivable how this can happen, at least temporarily, when using fish oil. Fish oil is probably most effective at lowering triglycerides and, for many people with high triglycerides, a phenomenon occurs that as triglycerides come down, LDL tends to rise. ... (17 replies)

I don't know what your diet is like, but cutting down significantly on carbohydrates usually results in a substantial drop in triglycerides. ... (4 replies)
