Remedy Description

DR. GOTT: My wife takes niacin. She had high triglycerides for 16 years.

Nothing seemed to help. They were never under 350. Well, finally, one of her doctors said to try niacin. He said to start very slowly, as it can cause some

really awful side effects if you take too much. So she started at 100 milligrams a day. That went on for about three weeks, until her body got used to it. Then

she increased to 200 milligrams and so on. She worked her way up to 3,000 milligrams a day, and there are no side effects at all. Now her triglycerides are only

130. Her doctors are really pleased. What do you think?

DEAR READER: Although niacin doesn't help all patients, it can often produce striking effects in lowering blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels. I share her

doctors' enthusiasm. She should continue taking the vitamin and have her cholesterol and triglyceride levels checked every six to 12 months.
