Triglycerides elevated? Statins AREN’T the answer. Time and time and time again I see patients come into my office that have been given a statin (Lipitor, Crestor, etc..) for their cholesterol. However, while most know their cholesterol numbers, few know their triglycerides. If the triglycerides are elevated and HDL (good) cholesterol is low, there is a very, very good chance you’re pre-diabetic.  And guess what? That drug will make your numbers look better, but will do ZIP to change your progression to diabetes.  Tens of billions of dollars per year and it ain’t fixing the problem…
