I've been struggling with high triglycerides for the past few years and I just got a call from my doctor to discuss my latest blood work results: Good cholesterol - Excellent, Bad Cholesterol and Blood Sugar - as low as low can be, but my triglycerides are sky high (in the 400's) and my doctor wants to put me on meds to help lower them. But I'm very resistent. I don't want to have to start taking medication at such a young age (33). I take about 9000 mg or flax oil a day (per my doctors reccomendation) I keep my sugar intake under 20 grams, I keep my sodium intake low, about 40-45g of fat per day, no caffeine, working on losing weight --- I'm at my wits end as to what else I can do to lower my levels. The doctor agrees that I am doing everything right and is pretty certain it's hereditary but I'm still holding on to the hope that I can lower these levels myself. Has anyone had similar problems? if so, any suggestions? What am I not doing right?
