What do you suggest if my triglycerides raised to 440mg/dl but after3rd day it is 182mg/dl total cholestrol is 190mg/dl?
Modify your diet: Sounds like your TG's respond to diet. Alcohol and carbohydrates will raise TG's significantly. I would work on reducing your alcohol intake and/or reducing your simple carbohydrates. Sugars and starches such as rice, bread and pasta will raise them. You report a high number, but I really get concerned over 500. You may wa to wet with a dietician at some point. ...Read more

Eat less fatty food: A lot of foods cooked on oil and fat, ghee. All of that adds to high cholesterol and triglycerides. Try to find healthier options.

My appetite is gone. Force myself to eat. Stress? Remeron gave me an appetite but raised my triglycerides. Lexapro (escitalopram) makes nausea worse. What will help?
Get seen: I'm concerned you have a physical lesion obstructing your gut. Even if you don't, you need to find the reason. Sensible people -- even physicians -- don't buy "stress" as an easy answer. "eustress" is good -- it motivates you to excel. "distress" means you're helpless / feel helpless; if you're in an abusive situation, your physician can perhaps help u escape;are you so strung out you can't eat? ...Read more

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

Yes: Over all triglyceride level could go up. But mcts get metabolized quicker than long chain triglycerides. After metabolism it behaves like carbohydrates. Hence mostly it is not stored in fat cells. ...Read more
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
Dr. Moran--thanks for the answer. My triglycerides are very low and LDL is 33 on lipitor (atorvastatin). I was hoping fish oil will raise hdl (mine is 30). Can it?
How can I raise my HDL while on beta blocker? Total cholesterol was 156, triglycerides- 75, ldl- 105, hdl- 38. I have wolff Parkinson's white & hbp.
Crestor (rosuvastatin): Crestor (rosuvastatin) is a medication that can raise your hdl. Since you are 18 with hypertension, that is already abnormal. See your physician who prescribes you the beta blocker and ask if there is a better medication for you or a diet plan to raise your HDL instead of medication. ...Read more
See an allergist: All distilled spirits have some additives, preservatives and the like, and you may be allergic to some proprietary chemical in the mix. Alcohol allergy does occur, but it would not be specific to the brand of beverage. You don;t say what kind of reaction you are having, and I cannot tell you whether it is likely to be allergic in nature without knowing the specific signs and symptoms you get. ...Read more
A great French: Physician of the middle ages, Parcelsus, said "All Remedies are Poisons. The difference between a remedy and a poison lies in the dose." What is deadly is when people drink more vodka than they can generally tolerate because they believe the caffeine in the red bull will keep them alert and awake. That mostly isn't true. They may think they are less impaired, but they aren't, and may drive etc. ...Read more
NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!: Nothing should ever be injected that is not sterile and made specifically for injection, and then only by appropriate medical professionals for the right reason. Iv vodka would have a very good chance of producing a severe vein inflammation (thrombophlebitis), which could cost you your arm (or leg), cause horrible pain itself, and do nothing for your underlying pain. You need mental health help now. ...Read more
If you are looking to get stoned of your mind, then the combination of a benzodiazepine (tranquillizers) like Restoril (temazepam) and alcohol will get you there, if you are lucky enough not to have respiratory depression, coma and death.
Benzos and alcohol have synergistic effects, which means that 1 + 1 does not equal 2, but equals 4 or 9 or even 15. This reaction is different for different people. ...Read more
