Weight loss /High Triglycerides

Recommended Posts

Dear Doctor Okun, 

I saw the abstract of your article on weight loss in PD and you wrote about intervention . At what point do you intervene and what would it be. I have lost 20kg in the past 2 years. It is affecting my personality so I hardly socialize. 

Also my blood Triglyceride is 170. I was given Lipitor to treat this but I read some literature that cast doubts on the safety. What alternatives do I have?

Is high Triglycerides related to PD? 

Best Regards.

I leave the triglyceride treatment to the internists and cardiologists.

I generally use a dietician to help improve weight.  Some people also use cannabis.
