I have no answers to give either. But shockingly found out today that my Triglycerides are over 1000. I do not drink sodas, eat very little fried food, do not frequent fast-food places and do not have a sweet tooth, with the exception of a little ice cream here and there. Only thing I noticed was ever increasing fat in my belly and hips, whereas throughout my life I have always been a "stringbean". I am terrified right now of having a stroke or heart attack. The Doctor put me on medication and I am searching for every triglycerides-lowering diet plan I can find on line. Sometimes, we just do not know what's causing certain conditions, but have to do everything possible to rectify it. Aside from lowering carbs, sugars, fried food, oils, alcohol and cigarettes, and increasing exercise, fresh fruit, fresh veges and fish intake what else can be recommended in combination with medication.
