Triglyceride Buster-Update 17. June 2009 William Davis (8) In the last Heart Scan Blog post, I described Daniel's experience reducing his triglycerides from 3100 mg/dl to around 1100 mg/dl with use of omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil, along with modifications in his diet. This was accomplished in the space of around two weeks. An update: Daniel has continued another 10 days on his fish oil, along with elimination of wheat, cornstarch, and sugars. Repeat triglyceride: 202 mg/dl. That's 93.5% reduction in the space of three weeks--no drugs involved. Daniel really did nothing extraordinary. He simply followed the simple advice I provided to take a moderate dose of EPA+DHA from over-the-counter fish oil supplements, along with elimination of the foods that are extravagant triggers of triglycerides. He's got just a little further to go to achieve the biologically ideal level of less than 60 mg/dl. You can see that it is not really that difficult--provided someone didn't load you down with nonsense about "cutting your fat," or statin or fibrate drugs.
