I am facing with the problem of increased triglycerides to the level of 228 mg/dl and decreased level of HDL to the level of 31 mg/dl. Please suggest.?

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

Triglyceride (Definition)

Are crucially important, energy-dense, poorly-water-soluble molecules made of 3 fat molecules attached to a glycerol backbone. They are made by all animals, including humans http://goo.

I have high triglyceride level. Pancreatitis has occured due to increase of triglyceride and diabetes has increased too.

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. Consult your doctor for medications to lower your triglycerides. Diet and exercise will help, but might not be enough. ...Read more

Can eating cheese raise your triglycerides?

Can eating cheese raise your triglycerides?

Yes: Elevated nonfasting triglycerides mean nothing. A nice cheese meal before your blood test will increase triglycerides. If I had elevated fasting triglycerides, i'd up my aerobic fitness program and stop worrying. 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. Gov/pmc/articles/PMC3687049/ ***** I am not sure that there is enough data out there to be able to say that celexa would be the key. ...Read more

Can you tell me what you suggest if you drink alcohol why triglycerides increases?

It is simple: The connection between drinking alcohol and high triglyceride levels? It’s all about calories! Alcohol is full of calories (it’s also full of sugar) and all extra calories turn into triglycerides. The triglycerides are then stored in your body as fat. This means that high alcohol consumption can increase your triglyceride levels. ...Read more

More exercise: It's time to take your exercise program to a much higher level. This'll make you feel great and very likely restore your health. After forty years in medicine, I join most physicians in thinking that "high triglycerides" in a ordinary person isn't something to treat with a pill, but a marker for genetics (which we can't change) and your body's asking for more exercise (a gift to yourself). ...Read more

Does the medication tricor (fenofibrate) for high triglycerides increase risk of colon cancer?

Does the medication tricor (fenofibrate) for high triglycerides increase risk of colon cancer?

No: There were concerns decades ago about Clofibrate but they came to nothing. I searched the nih database for the past 20 years and found nothing, and it makes no sense biologically. If it did, the research piranhas would have grabbed it up -- it's all about trying to discover and prove something. The fibrates have saved many, many lives and I would not be concerned. ...Read more

Unlikely: To be liver since resent day liver function tests are VERY SENSITIVE in picking up liver disease. Just a thought but it could be a pinched NERVE in your lower thoracic or upper lumbar spine! Mention this to your treating physician!
Hope this helps!
