I just got my lipid panel back - I am in shock. I'm also going to post this in the neglected Cholesterol and Triglyceride support forum/
As background, my 5/24/04 lipid panel had my total cholesterol at 253 and my triglyceride level at 1285. For a guy who just turned 36, this obviously sucks. This was while I was on medication too; I've taken Lipitor, Tricor, Gemfibrizol, Niaspan, etc. and watched my trigylceride levels get progressively worse.
I continued to take Tricor with no change in life style through late June, when I decided to do my first liver flush. The week prior to the flush, I stopped taking the triglyceride medication as part of the preparation. After the flush, I decided not to take it anymore. My weight started to normalize, and I modified my diet to encourage healthy and regular bile flow.
A non-fasting blood test for liver and pancreatic function in August had shown my triglyceride level had dropped to 900. I thought this was great, but was not firmly convinced that I was on the right track because my TG's have bounced all over the place.
I went for a blood test on 9/23/04, and just got the results back. My triglycerides are down to 433, and my total cholesterol is now 179. Just to recap, using my flush on 6/25/04 as the mile stone, my weight dropped about 17 pounds, my triglycerides dropped 852 points, and my total cholesterol dropped 74 points all in the space of about 3 months. This was from 1 flush, modest dietary changes and from following some of the great advice in this forum. I now entirely confident that the Liver Flush works, and that my triglycerides will be completely normalized by the end of this year. THANKS EVERYONE!!!
PS: My doctor told me I had a genetic disorder and that medication was the only way I'd bring my TG's down. Even the doctor that got my latest test results back saw fit to make fun of the Liver Flush concept, and said I should take medication to bring them down to normal levels. MORONS!!! These guys are purportedly good doctors too.
