Depends: It depends on their ingredients. For instance, red yeast rice is the same ingredient in Mevacor (lovastatin) and has a very tiny incidence of adverse effects. Generally though, statins are safe and the doses you get in an otc med will be small. ...Read more

My b.P reads 90/150, i got a lipid profile done which shows triglyceride as 267 mg/dl and total cholesterol as 277 mg/dl. Should i start medication.

My b.P reads 90/150, i got a lipid profile done which shows triglyceride as 267 mg/dl and total cholesterol as 277 mg/dl. Should i start medication.

Diet/lifestyle first: I advise trying diet & lifestyle changes first. BP is a bit high but if you take it 10 times a day you'll get 10 different readings- get home cuff & follow over time. Exercise, meditation, healthy diet & herbs can lower bp. High tg shows need to reduce sugars/starches in diet. Need to know hdl, LDL and LDL subparticles to make recommendations re: cholesterol but diet/herbs can lower. See comment:. ...Read more

Marine Fish Oil: lowers triglycerides. You need to use fish oil in which each capsule contains 50% or more of the combination of EPA & DHA and is purified. Check the label. One also heeds to take enough. One capsule won't do it. Please see a nutritionist or a nutrition-oriented doc. Peace and good health. ...Read more
