High Cholesterol board


happy,

My guess is the 80mg will get you below 200 but that's only a guess. I hope your joints and muscles can take that much without too much pain...but at this point I think you have little choice. You might consider adding one of the fibrates (gemfibrozil) to your drug regimen if triglycerides remain high.

You will probably be angioplastied and stented during the angiogram- it sounds like some blockages are almost a given. In the meantime, please take 2 adult aspirin every day to avoid the risk of clot formation between now and then.

Your super high numbers are almost certainly genetic (familial hypercholesterolemia), as delrae's are.
