I received my results from my cholesterol panel: HDL is 22 LDL is unknown TRIGLYCERIDES 1,165 My doc said that the triglyceride levels are so high, that it obscured my LDL reading. She has prescribed to me "Tricor." I am a non steroid using body builder and jogger/runner. I run two miles every other day and weight lift six days a week. I do not use supplements, except a store bought multivitamin. I am 31 years old Hispanic male, weigh 235 lbs at 5'8", but my body fat is approximately 11-12%, which I had measured through hydrostatic weighing. I have been exercising since I was 14 years old. There is a history of diabetes type 1 on my maternal side and a history of thyroid cancer on my fathers side. I am at a loss to what the problem could be and my doctor just wants me to take the prescription medicine but doesn't have an answer to what is causing this. Is there anyone out there with a suggestion on possible causes, any specialists I should see or any other tests I should take?
