Are You at Risk for Hypertriglyceridemia?

If you have been found to have extremely high triglyceride levels in your blood, your doctor may recommend that you immediately begin eating healthier, increase activity, quit smoking, lose weight, and start taking Vascepa. Some people at risk for hypertriglyceridemia are those that consume too much alcohol, have liver or kidney disease, are obese, have uncontrolled diabetes, and your age could play a big part. A simple blood test will tell your doctor if a lifestyle change and Vascepa can help reduce triglyceride levels. Without a diagnosis and treatment for severe hypertriglyceridemia, you could be at risk for coronary artery disease (CAD).

Vascepa Will Help Lower Triglyceride Levels

Vascepa contains Icosapent in capsule form which is an ultra-pure omega fatty acid called eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), or more simply, a prescription fish oil. Swallow the Vascepa capsules whole; do not split, chew, crush, or dissolve them. Triglycerides are a naturally occurring kind of fat in your blood that is produced in your intestines and liver, mainly from the fats you consume from your diet. Vascepa works to decrease the production of triglycerides in your liver as well as helping to remove it from your blood.

A Change of Lifestyle for the Better with Help from Vascepa

Weight, diet, and exercise play an important role in those dealing with very high triglyceride levels. Medications alone may not be of much use without the co-operation of the patient. A few simple changes can make a world of difference not only in your triglyceride levels, but in lowering your bad cholesterol (LDL) called low-density lipoprotein and raising your good cholesterol (HDL) or high-density lipoprotein.

Eliminate sweets all together, including pop and concentrated fruit juices. Decrease or eliminate your alcohol consumption as it is a strong contributor to high triglyceride levels. Limit white rice, bread, and pasta and try to eat more whole grains and food high in fiber. Stop eating red meat and try new and healthy ways to prepare chicken and fish instead. Exercise and keep active as much as you can. Even a modest weight loss of 10-15 pounds will help reduce triglyceride levels and you will feel so much healthier.

Before You Take Vascepa

Ask your doctor if Vascepa is safe for you to take while you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Explain other medical conditions or food and drug allergies you have to your doctor and list any OTC or Rx medications you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements, to be certain they will not interfere with taking Vascepa. Do not start or stop taking any medication without consulting with your doctor first.

Vascepa Recommendations and Proper Use

Keep all doctor appointments and scheduled lab tests so your progress can be monitored and any required dose adjustments carried out. Seek immediate help if you experience hives, swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat when taking Vascepa as you could have allergies to fish or shellfish.
