My triglycerides are 670 mg/dL. Someone said that is too high.
From this web site … https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/13-ways-to-lower-triglycerides … there are thirteen things I can do.

- Follow a low carb diet.
- Eat more fiber.
- Exercise regularly.
- Avoid trans fat.
- Eat fatty fish twice weekly
- Increase your intake of unsaturated fats
- Establish a regular meal pattern
- Limit alcohol intake
- Add soy protein to your diet
- Eat more tree nuts

I am trying to Lose Weight and exercise regularly. I have also limited my alcohol intake to zero. I will try the other suggests as well.
The “Eat fatty fish twice weekly” and “Try a natural supplement” seem to play in hand with this bottle of Nature’s Bounty Orderless Fish Oil coated soft gels. Pop two soft gels twice a day and my triglycerides worries are over.
Although there is a calorie impact from taking these order less fish gels. There are ten calories per gel with one gram of fat and seven and a half milligrams of cholesterol.
But, these fish gels will give six hundred milligrams of the Omega-3 Fatty Acids and a thousand milligrams of fish oil.
The only kind of fish I like is from Long John Silvers. But, I don’t believe I will not be eating there any longer. Although, I worked at a local Long John Silvers for a few years in the early 1990s.
I will need to learn to like the fatty fish. I have learned from the above web site fatty fish is salmon, herring, sardines, tuna and mackerel. There could be others but they were not mentioned on the web page. Maybe I can do salmon, but sardines, probably not. Maybe tuna if I can get over the foul smell.
The Fish Oil wiki page has a more in depth narrative of fish oil. As with the benefits of fish oil, there are some dangers, like toxic pollutants. It appears CVS, Nature Made, Rite Aid and GNC sold fish oil with high levels of PCBs.
At least I bought my Natures Bounty fish oil from Krogers, so I must be safe.
Ah … carry on.
