What brings down triglycerides in the blood, besides medication?

What brings down triglycerides in the blood, besides medication?

Lifestyle change: Triglycerides are very sensitive to three things in diet: weight, carbohydrate intake, and alcohol intake. If carbs and alcohol are cut dramatically, then usually weight loss occurs. I'd advise cutting white or brown foods (bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, sugar) by 50-100% and replacing with green foods (broccoli, zucchini, green beans, cabbage, peas, etc). Exercise daily too. Good luck! ...Read more

What to do if I don't want to go on cholesterol meds. If I stop eating for a week will my triglycerides go down?

Probably: The triglycerides are much more labile than the cholesterol and do go up substantially after eating. You need a low carbohydrate diet. I doubt if many doctors would recommend fasting for a week but you need to reduce the portions of food, cut out the in between meals eating, and restrict carbohydrates. The triglycerides are much more responsive to life style changes than the cholesterol. ...Read more

Once triglycerides are stored, are they released as triglycerides in the bloodstream again or broken down further?

Broken down: Stored triglycerides are your long term energy storage sites. When energy is needed, the specific enzymes needed to break down the triglyceride stores are activated so that the energy stored in th chemical bonds can be mobilized and used by the issues and cells as needed. To that end, the triglycerides are broken down to free fatty acids and may be recombined into other molecules as needed. ...Read more

If you feel you need a "natural" remedy, there's a red rice yeast that contains lovastatin. I trust you're eating sensibly and exercising and I'm glad to see you're managing your hyupertension. ...Read more
