My triglycerides are 404 smhair    They have been steadily rising for a year or 2 now and I keep putting off being on the meds.  Well the doc says this time he wants me on them and I asked him to give me one more chance to get them down my self and he agreed.  I told him I had started exercising and now I have cut the pop out and bought some splenda.  Cause we all know that sugar and carbs is what causes the triglycerides to go up.  So we'll see.
 
Just another good reason to make sure I walk every day on the treadmill.

I hope you get the triglycerides down soon.  Become an avid label reader.  I did and was amazed what is in some of the things we are eating.  There is hidden sugar and salt in most everything.  That will help you choose the good foods.  Also, cooking from "scratch" helps a lot.  The pre-packaged foods and fast foods are soooo bad for you, but you probably already know this!  Just trying to help!

Well, I hope that you are able to get them down without the meds. But, if you can't, you will need to resign yourself to taking them. It is always good to take good care with your diet and exercise. I hope that all goes well for you. I know it would make you feel better if you could get the levels down yourself without the aid of medications. Best of luck to you.

My triglycerides are down to 130 from 170 but that even took me a long time. I would say about a year. I am almost got all my Cholesterol stuff down to where is belongs. That part does make me happy.

Meg, I take 3,500 IU a day of vitamin D3.  I was able to finally edge into the low normal range but he wants me to continue taking this amount.  So, 2,000 IU a day isn't a lot.

Honestly I don't know how I did it.? Beats me?... I'll have to check and see how high my Rheumy wanted my Vit-D.... Hopefully my son's library card comes tomorrow and I can get back to you on that to.
I because  Diabetic in Sept of '07 and then got dx with Fibro in Dec. of '08. I really don't know? Eating a little better I guess and changing the salt I use. I have Kosher salt now. It's really different so just watch how much you put on your food if you do so.
A friend of mine has Triglyc. of 1,500. So don't feel too bad about how high your's are because his is the highest I've seen yet.

Eating better, cutting out sodas, and exercising are good, but I"d watch the Splenda. The stuff isn't as bad (in my experience) as Nutrasweet, but, still, it can kick my IBS into overdrive. I've started using stevia lately, but with my current Pristiq withdrawal, I can't tell if it's easier on my IBS. I figure it's probably healthier, though, for being a natural product, and not lab-produced. I'm starting to avoid eating anything that I can't pronounce!

So I saw the doc today about my high trigs.  Of course, he prescribed a statin drug.  Listed under Side Effects:  Tell your doctor immediately if you develop any of these symptoms: muscle pain/tenderness/weakness, especially with unusual tiredness.  ARE YOU KIDDING ME???  How would I know???  skull
