What are the effects of raised triglycerides in my case they are raised to 350 and cholesterol is 210?
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
Hello sir, i'am in a problem. My triglyceride level has raised to 450. how to maintain it. Please suggest we ways to control it. And about the diet.
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. There are few medicines that can help, but please talk to a doctor to recommend appropriate one, and follow your liver number while you take it. ...Read more
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: But who is really checking for medium chain trig in food are you? Generally dairy products are filled with triglycerides. ...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
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
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
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
Whichever.: There is no evidence and there will probably never be any evidence that one or the other is better. This seems to be more a preference. ...Read more
You can, but Ritz crackers have considerably more fat content than saltines so are a little less gentle on an irritated stomach and bowel.
Rule of thumb: if it makes your nauseous or hurts your stomach, stop eating it and try again when you're feeling a bit better. If it doesn't cause pain or nausea, then you're good. ...Read more
They buffer acid: "upset stomach" is not enough information to help you. Do you have nausea with/without vomiting, fullness, bloating, gassiness, pain (if so in what location (s)), bleeding, diarrhea/constipation/change in baseline bowel habits, tenderness, distension? Are you pregnant, have underlying disease, >60? ...Read more

I had to eat something at 2am (saltines and ritz to settle a terrible stomach ache) Am I going ti gain a lot now?
Timing of eating just does not matter. It's total calories in. 4000 calories is one pound of weight. That's equivalent to about a 100 saltines (40 calories per saltine. Takes 100 of them to gain a pound).
Hope belly better; abdominal pain can be a serious condition (unlikely if it goes away). ...Read more
My s.Cholesterol is 240 and s.Triglyceride is 205 mg/dl. How can I lower them naturally, apart from medicines?
First, it's important to know cholesterol is not the main cause of heart disease- see http://bit. Ly/1era8lt
however, depending on chol. Subtypes lowering it may help. This is a pretty comprehensive article: http://huff. To/11tptid but I would do a few things differently.
Avoid red rice yeast- it's a (natural) statin!

Yes: If it is a typical hemangioma, most of the times yes! The general rule of thumb is that 90% are gone by 9 yrs of age, 70% are resolved by age 7, and 50% are gone by age 5. So, be patient and know that most will spontaneously disappear. If it is in a worrisome location (eg. Eyelid, nasal passage, etc), your doctor may refer you to a specialist for treatment to get rid of it earlier. ...Read more
