Triglycerides at this level put you at risk for stroke and heart attack. You should be concerned, even if your doctor is not. Remember, conventional medicine kills 98,000 people each year in the U.S., most of them through the use of synthetic drugs. There are better ways to deal with acne than the use of drugs, but they are not as easy as popping a pill. As I end up telling most people who post messages here, finding the right doctor, not just some doctor, is the key. Yellow tab above.
