Hi doctor,

I am having high triglycerides around 250 to 500, but very low LDL around 30 to 45 for the last five years. Kindly help. What should I do? I swim five days a week for 20 minutes daily. I am currently on tablet vitamin B12 and Zinc supplement. I have also attached my laboratory reports.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

We are here to help you.

  • Increase in triglycerides of this level should be treated with Fenofibrate.
  • I would recommend to reduce potato, rice and sweets. In case you consume alcohol you should quit it.
  • Continue with swimming and in winters do jogging.

Thank you doctor,

What is the reason for such a low LDL and high triglycerides? Is there any risk with this? How to get Fenofibrate? What does very low LDL mean?

Hi

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Low LDL is good (LDL- low density lipoprotein). Do not worry about that.
  • But, high triglycerides are not good. It can increase the risk of heart attack or stroke.
  • Fenofibrate is widely available. This is a prescription medicine and should be taken under guidance of your family physician.
