Alternatives

Lowering triglyceride and cholesterol levels should begin with lifestyle modifications. These lifestyle changes include a diet low in cholesterol and saturated fats, limited alcohol use, weight loss, and exercise. If lifestyle changes alone do not lower triglyceride or cholesterol levels to a desirable level, certain medications, such as Triglide, may be necessary.
 
In general, cholesterol treatment is aimed at lowering LDL cholesterol levels enough to reduce the risk of developing complications associated with high cholesterol (see Effects of High Cholesterol). The higher your risk, the lower your LDL goal will be.

For most people, Triglide is quite effective at lowering cholesterol. It is also generally well tolerated. However, side effects can occur, and people may wish to consider a substitute for Triglide. These substitutes could include other fibrates, statins, or other cholesterol medicines.
