Other issues?: If he has diabetes, he needs better sugar control. If he drinks alcohol, he should stop. Recheck the level fasting. If it's remaining elevated on a vegetarian diet, with the other factors in check, it's likely genetic.

You : You should discuss this with your doctor but a 2 month period off Atorvastatin poses no significant risk. By the way, these statins are very safe and have been proven to reduce heart attacks and deaths. High cholesterol and diabetes (you appear to have both) increase the risk of heart disease and stroke over many years. 2 months will not make a big difference. There is no question that exercise and weight loss are the best treatments for most of what afflicts you. Even on a vegetarian diet a person can be overweight, have fatty liver, high cholesterol and diabetes. Keep you doc informed. And good luck on your efforts. ...Read more

Another reason is lactose intolerance, in which one can't digest lactose (milk sugar). "lactaid" tablets help. A third reason is sugar alcohols, like maltitol, that can cause gas. The doctor can look for other causes. ...Read more
