Hereditary High Tri's

Race Says:


My father died in 1986 of a brain stem stroke due to Triglycerides that were well over 600. He laid in the ICU for a month with no brain activity to speak of. We took him off the ventilator and let him go. At that time I was 22 years young and my brother was 26. The doctors that oversaw my dad informed my brother and I to watch our Tri count as we aged. Sure enough, my liver produces large amounts of Tri’s on a regular basis regardless of diet. I have been on Tricor, Simvastatin and Zocor to little or no success. I am wondering if anyone can relate to my story and has been taking Gemfib. I prefer to not take any statins but I don’t think my DNA will allow me not to. I exercise with weights and cardio, eat pretty well only to have my Tri’s be over 500. My Cholesterol is 309. Can anyone tell me of a success with this condition on this drug? Thanks.
