fenofibrate & triglycerides
just had my blood tests to see how the fenofibrate was working on my high cholesterol 245 and high trigs 754. Both went down after 3 months of low no fats, exercise and getting off Atkins... I was eating saturated fats with every meal for 9 months.
Now my cholesterol is 175, and Triglycerides 93! So, I thought the doc would take me off the meds, but he just emailed saying nope, stay on them for another 3 months and then we'll see if the dose can be lowered! I'm heartbroken, and kinda ******... My numbers good & bad cholesterol are great, and he didn't offer an explaination or reason as to why he feels the way he does.
I wrote back (Kaiser) and asked if I should make an appt to discuss his reasons because I'm not happy. Great, so now I'm probably going to have to pay to hear what he should have just written in the email. And he's a D.O. internal medicine. You'd think he'd want me off the meds since my numbers are great now.
I just don't understand....
