    [High cholorestorol & tryglyicerides]

    Hi, All

    Was wondering about effects or relationship of high cholorestorol and tryglyicerides to HCM....hubby was diagnosed 2 months ago with HCM - he has been on meds for high C. and high T. levels for about 2 years. (He takes Tricor and an aspirin daily) Has a history of his 'good' C. being too low and the 'bad' C. and T. being way too high. After modifying his diet for a length of time, the levels were still too high, so doctor put him on meds. The doctor runs blood tests every 6 months or so to check. The meds seemed to do the trick and his levels had been in the normal range for about the past year or so. However, he was tested just 2 weeks ago and they told us they are up again - back in that high range - along with his liver enzymes being elevated, too. Seeing the doctor on Friday to discuss....

    Are we dealing with a 'double-edged sword' here? My understanding that HCM affects the heart in one way, and high C. and T. can effect the heart in another......

    Would appreciate any thoughts or info - Thanks!

    Having HCM does not mean you are free from developing other forms of heart disease. You could very well be dealing with 2 different problems and both need attention. The good news here is that they can be treated in there own ways without disrupting the treatment of the other.

    For further information contact the HCMA office.

    Best to all,
