My triglyceride level has been about 250 260 for some time. Have been taking Lipofen for some time and recently the cardiologist added Fenofibrate. On a recent lab the triglyceride went to 450. Will admit that with summer I did go off diet a little with a lot of functions going on, but I don't think it should have gone that far. Also take two fish oil capsules daily (1400 mg) and 10mg of Crestor. Could taking the liopfen and fenofibrate caused the increased?

I am a 57 year old lady. Last year during a general check up my ECG revealed myocardial ischemia. My cholesterol and triglycerides levels were well within limits. I have been taking cardace 1.25 mg and ecosprin 75mg since then as advised by my physician. This year, that is on 2nd March I again opted for a general check up and found to my dismay that my total cholesterol (278 mg/dl) and triglycerides (189 mg/dl) levels had gone up. I have been now prescribed Lipikind. Also I have been given iron supplement as my Haemoglobin is 10.3 gms%. On the morning of 4th March (1 am to 2 am) I was having racing heart syndrome with heavy palpitation and very high pulse rate. My hands became numb and most part of my body had become cold. I became normal after 45 mts after my husband pressed/massaged my foot and leg. During the period when I had the syndrome I was constantly talking loudly about safety of my family etc. I visited the toilet immediately therafter and was completely relieved for the night. On the forenoon of 6th March around 11 am when I was just relaxing lying down after lunch the symptom of palpitation started. Immediately I pressed each palm with the other and massaged my fingers. The symptom died down after 10 minutes. My search on the Internet only shows that there are many out there having the symptom and have been living with it for even up to 3 years. But I just want to rule out some of the oft mentioned causes such as Thyroid problem, Magnesium deficiency and Mitral valve prolapse. I am told by a relative that a doctor in Mumbai says that this may be due to the new drugs (Lipidkind) I have started taking only some 4 days back and that this symptom will wear off soon. But please advise me.
