[QUOTE=BarbJ]what does flushing niacin mean? I have genetically high cholesterol also.. my tri count is now 615, was 650 in Nov. Im getting another blood test this week. I take about 700mg of calcium, I've also cut the carbs considerably. Tks.[/QUOTE]

Niacin is B3 and is known to raise HDL levels (it did mine). Flush is the redness that is brought up in the skin accompanied by itching. This will happen if you do not start at extremely low does and very gradually work your way up to the recommended amount. There is also non-flush Niacin but it is not as effective in lowering cholesterol levels.
