Cholesterol Home > Lower Triglicerides

Were you looking for information about Lowering Triglycerides? Lower triglicerides is a common misspelling of lower triglycerides.
 
Certain medications (such as birth control pills and some blood pressure medications) can cause high triglycerides, as can certain medical conditions (such as diabetes and hypothyroidism). By getting these medical conditions under control and possibly switching to different medications, you can help lower your triglyceride levels. If these steps do not adequately control your triglycerides, your healthcare provider may recommend certain lifestyle changes, such as limiting your intake of alcohol and making changes to your diet.
