I posted this in the Lounge so more people will be more apt to see, read and comment. Ok, serious problem that I need help with. After 7 months of smart eating and 5 months of consistent exercise and workout, I lowered my cholesterol to 204. My good cholesterol was 44. My liver tests came back normal. The doctor told me I officially lost 28 lbs. (30-35 more to go!) Here is the problem. My triglycerides are in the 500s. In December of last year they were 565, and now they came back at 524. Im getting quite concerned. And to be honest, the numbers just dont add up. My cardio workout is on the elliptical for 30 minutes, maintaining a heart rate of 145-150. I bur approximately 370-390 calories. It has lowered my resting heart rate from 80-85 to 60. Thats just cardio, and I do that three times a week plus muscle toning and what I like to call the gut check station. Thats where I work my abs with the big ball, doing crunches and such. From what I have researched thus far, Im doing everything Im supposed to do. The doctor gave a script for 2 drugs, Crestor (which I have been taking) and Zetia. Note that my cholesterol test was absent the Crestor. So the lowering is due to diet and exercise. I desperately want to get rid of the drugs altogether. But the Triglyceride situation has me quite upset. Any thoughts ideas comments or opinions would be greatly appreciated.
