High triglycerides can cause pancreatitis
. My grandmother died from this. My cardiologist has prescribed Omacor for me, which is omega 6 & 3, fish oil and whatever. He says it is to lower my triglycerides. I am also taking Zetia 10 mg, which carries some of the same warnings as the statin medicines. It builds up in my body, apparently to toxic like levels and causes muscle pain all over. I stop it for 5 or 6 days, then restart it.
