Hello Dr, I'm a 50 yr female, my Triglycerides 100, HDL 65 & LDL 165, I have very healthy food habits & exercise almost regular. Do I need medicines?

Do further testing: I would not advise treatment to lower LDL unless you have a high proportion of small dense LDL and/or elevated CRP and/or homocysteine. High chol. Does not cause heart disease; inflammation does but if inflamed then could use supplements to lower chol.

Does consuming Bcomplex daily after food reduces triglycerides apart from regular exercise. If triglycerides are 250 and hdl 25.

Kinda sorta, but. ..: Standard or typical B complex doses probably won't make a dent in high triglycerides or low HDL cholesterol. However, high dose vitamin B3 aka niacin has been proven to lower triglycerides & raise low HDL but is often intolerable due to flushing (can be mitigated by aspirin). But there's no proof that niacin prevents heart attacks & strokes to same degree as statins. No such thing as free lunc ...Read more

Very high: You can try a trial of vegetarian food, if you're not already doing that - otherwise you won't be able to reduce the LDL unless you use meds. Medication still isn't indicated unless you have a history of atherosclerotic disease or smoke or have diabetes. HBP and Family history could sway the decision too. ...Read more
