want to ask what is the drug for high triglyceride levels, my father just checked the lab, the results of his triglycerides are 440, he does have diabetes and cholesterol, previously he used to take simvastatin 40mg at night
Triglycerides are a component of fat that can cause cholesterol buildup in blood vessels (plaque) and can interfere with the health of blood vessels.
Normally TG (triglycerides) have levels <150 mg / dl. If your score is above this ideal number, then you experience a hypertriglyceridemia condition and will lead to dyslipidemia (cholesterol / fat balance disorders).
To help lower TG levels you need to do the following:
Cut down on foods that are high in saturated fats, trans fats and other bad fats such as fried foods, greasy and fatty foods, baked goods, red meat, high fat milk.
Healthy exercise routine such as walking, jogging, swimming.
Drink lots of water.
Expand vegetables and fruits high in fiber.
Reduce your sugar intake.
Get enough rest.
Take fat-lowering drugs such as the statin group, the fibrate group.
In principle, all cholesterol-lowering drugs can lower TG levels in the blood. So in principle all the drugs are good and good. To help reduce your high TG levels, it is best if you consult with the nearest doctor so that you can get a dose or type of drug that is much more appropriate.
I hope this helps.
