More Tips to Lower Triglycerides and Improve Your Lipid Profile1

There are many things you can do to help bring down high triglycerides (TG). Your healthcare professional can help you put together a plan that may include some or all of the following:

  • Reducing alcohol consumption: Alcohol can increase TG levels.
  • Losing weight: If you improve your diet and get more exercise, chances are you also will lose weight too. Losing fat around your midsection can help improve TG levels.
  • Improving glucose control: If you have type 2 diabetes (a chronic disease characterized by too much glucose [sugar] in the blood), the same diet and exercise tips that help reduce high TG levels can help you improve glucose control.
  • Taking prescription medications as directed: If diet and exercise are not enough to reach your goals, you may need a prescription medication. Be sure to take your medication every day, as directed by your doctor.
