Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • In spite of these medications, if your triglycerides are elevated, you will need to add one more medicine like tablet Fenofibrate 145 mg, once a day, at bedtime for six weeks and repeat triglycerides test after that.
  • I suggest the following lifestyle changes:
  1. Avoid fatty, oily and high calorie diet.
  2. Do exercises like brisk walking or jogging according your capacity, atleast 30 minutes a day for five days a week.
  3. Include lots of green leafy vegetables, fruits, and fish once or twice a week. Avoid meat.
  4. Avoid smoking and alcohol drinking habits, if any.

Hope this helps you. Get back if you have any doubts.
