Sometimes it take more than diet and exercise to lower cholesterol     

     More than a third of adults in the U.S. have high levels of fat, also called lipids, in their blood. There are two types of lipids in the blood: cholesterol and triglycerides. We're researching a new investigational medication composed of omega-3 that may work together with diet and exercise to help lower blood lipid, triglyceride, levels. If you have high triglycerides, high blood fats (hyperlipidemia) or high cholesterol, we invite you to learn more about the Trilogy 2 Study.

At high levels, triglycerides can cause problems with your heart, blood vessels, or pancreas.

Although it's a common problem, many of us are not aware of how to manage our high triglycerides. Studies have consistently linked triglycerides levels with heart disease, heart attacks, and stroke, especially in people with low levels of "good" HDL cholesterol and in those with type 2 diabetes. 

The good news is that there's a lot you can do on your own to lower triglycerides and improve heart health. The main treatments to lower triglycerides levels are diet and exercise. But sometimes medication is also needed.

The TRILOGY 2 study is researching a potential new medication that may work together with diet and exercise to help lower triglyceride levels.

About High Triglycerides

The TRILOGY 2 STUDY

Managing triglycerides levels is an important part of preventing heart disease. The TRILOGY 2 Study will look at a potential new investigational medication to see whether it can reduce the amount of triglyceride

(a type of fat) in your blood. Diet and exercise are the main way to lower triglycerides, but sometimes medication is also needed.

Our clinic in Wauconda's office is enrolling now for the Trilogy 2 Study clinical trial
