Like "I have the same problem. The Dr. told me b/g can make your triglycerides and cholesterol high. And family members that have it can be passed down to your genes. I have never had a problem till now either. Mine was in the 300's Which is more than double than what it should be. They put me on gemfibrozil and later added simvastatin. They are coming down now. Most likely meds are needed unfortunately. But the good news is I only pay 20.00 for the gemfibrozil and 6.00 for the simvastatin. Good luck and make sure you discuss your options with your Dr."
