Hi, my name is Charlotte Skiles. I'm a nutrition consultant and clinical herbalist with Eat in Peace Wellness Consulting, located in Austin, Texas, and right now I'm going to talk to you about triglyceride medicines. What you need to realize about triglycerides is that they are a reflection of the amount of carbohydrate in a person's diet. Many people--and many people in the health profession, think that triglycerides are a reflection of dietary fat. They are not. They are a direct reflection of carbohydrates. Anything about 85 is indicative of a problem, and that is a rather low number there, and we have way too many carbohydrates in our diet in the form of refined foods. Vegetables, whole grains--if appropriate--and fruits qualify as good carbohydrate sources. The breads, the cakes, the pastas, the alcohol: all of these other ones can definitely contribute to increased triglycerides in the body. So, that's what I want to say about triglyceride medicines. If you want to lower yours, adjust the carbohydrate intake in your diet.
