I would love to get off statins! My HDL, and LDL is no problem, but my triglycerides skyrocket when I stop the statins. Lo carb diet and exercise defintely help, but not enough. My total cholesterol stays around 125, and my triglycerides are currently around 80. If I stop the statin, my total cholesterol goes up to around 160 or so. and that is acceptable My triglycerides climb to around 400. Not good! 20 years ago, a blood test determined my triglycerides to be 750! Fortunately, I caught it in the very beginning, before any known damage occurred. Back then, and for quite a few years, I got my triglycerides below 100 with just exercise and diet. I didn't have a weight problem, as some might expect. Maybe I could get off statins if I jogged about 12 hours a day, but I'm not about to.
