My b.P reads 90/150, I got a lipid profile done which shows triglyceride as 267 mg/dl and total cholesterol as 277 mg/dl. Should I start medication.

Diet/lifestyle first: I advise trying diet & lifestyle changes first. BP is a bit high but if you take it 10 times a day you'll get 10 different readings- get home cuff & follow over time. Exercise, meditation, healthy diet & herbs can lower bp. High tg shows need to reduce sugars/starches in diet. Need to know hdl, LDL and LDL subparticles to make recommendations re: cholesterol but diet/herbs can lower. See comment:. ...Read more

Would medication treat mid LAD 100% coronary blockages effectively. Angiogram showed I had collateral coming from rca to lad. Fyi, my lipid # great.

No: There are no medications that can treat a 100% blockage. Collaterals are good and low cholesterol is good only surgery can treat a 100% blockage, but depending on the flow through the collateral circulation, that may not be necessary. Talk to your cardiologist about treatment options. ...Read more

Am not getting niacin in India. Triglycerides 200+. Other lipids normal. Regular walk. Cardio from 3 yrs. No improvement seen. Pls suggest medication?

Leave it alone: Some of my colleagues here will disagree. I do not believe in treating isolated hypertriglyceridemia. After fifty years, nobody's showed any real evidence that this is a risk factor for anything beyond being perhaps your body's way of asking for more exercise. Why not try getting some fitness stuff going instead? You're only 35; you could be far fitter than your peers, buffed up, easily. ...Read more

The only abnormality in my lipid panel is LDL 128. Is it time to stop my Lipitor (atorvastatin) statin drug. Now?
