OK, so after 1 month on paleo, my cholesterol has come down slightly and I've got improvement on the HDL and LDL - trigs still a bit too high. I take Trilipix. My question - by taking it, am I defeating the potential benefits of this diet? Am I "working against myself"? My doc feels my trig issue is genetic and wants me to stay on the meds, but also said it really is up to me. Has anyone else gone off his/her med.s and with what results?
Otherwise, I'm so surprised at how much better I feel overall. I've had three bouts of serious diverticulitis in just 6 months, but since I started this I've had nary a twinge! Pain free! And 10 pounds lost.
