Lipids: High triglycerides are related not only to the fat in your diet but also the simple sugars, so need to reduce both of these. Hdl is more difficult to increase, it is not due to diet, but can be improved with aerobic exercise. In women a low HDL is a significant risk factor for cardiac disease, so try to improve that. ...Read more

Must be very high: For pancreatits to occur, I'll assume your level is above 600. This needs to be lowered aggressively, as acute pancreatitis can be a very serious issue.

Can eating cheese raise your triglycerides?

Yes: Elevated nonfasting triglycerides mean nothing. A nice cheese meal before your blood test will increase triglycerides.

As a pathologist / lab specialist, I've never had much use for 'treating lab values.' enjoy your cheese. ...Read more

What would cause the increase of triglycerides count in human body?

Genes and diet: Many people inherit a predisposition to have high triglycerides if they become overweight. Sometimes triglycerides can be high in the absence of overweight but that's rare. Good news is that they are very sensitive to weight loss through diet and exercise. Low carb diets work best. Alcohol, Estrogens (contraceptive pill) and Accutane can increase triglycerides too. Hope this helps you out. ...Read more

My triglyceride levels have increased from 144.0-4/10/13 to 192.0-8/09/13 to 184.0-9/09/13. Same diet could stress be a factor?

My triglyceride levels have increased from 144.0-4/10/13 to 192.0-8/09/13 to 184.0-9/09/13. Same diet could stress be a factor?

Variation: Is somewhat normal with triglycerides. You might be eating the same overall diet, but what you ate in the 2-3 meals leading up to the test could vary the result, along with alcohol intake. If you average those three readings, you probably have a good idea of what your level is, and it is borderline high. Regular exercise, wt. Loss, more fish, less alcohol, and you'll lower it. ...Read more

Can you tell me how I could raise my total cholesterol without lowering my ldl-cholesterol or triglycerides?

Dr. Alvin Lin Dr. Lin
1 doctor agreed:
Can you tell me how I could raise my total cholesterol without lowering my ldl-cholesterol or triglycerides?

Why?: We typically don't want to raise Total Cholesterol, or for that matter LDL (bad) cholesterol or triglycerides. However, we'd like to raise HDL (good) cholesterol but unfortunately, no drug thus far has been able to both raise HDL and prevent heart disease events. Experimental drugs have successfully raised HDL but w/o lowering heart disease. Only exercise appears to do both. ...Read more

I could really use an SSRI foranxiety/depression, but triglycerides are high and I've read many of these raise it more. Any SSRIs that don't raise this?

Having increased: Triglycerides does not necessarily mean that you can't use a SSRI's. It does mean that baseline lipids should be done and then repeated - to see effect of the SSRI. Here is an article which may be helpful- https://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih.
