Went for my first lab tests since starting accutane....not so good. Triglycerides up from 71 to 255. That's quite a jump. However, I did have two glasses of wine the night before. I am wondering how much of the trigs elevation was due to the alcohol. My doc is gonna let me stay on it and just follow them, maybe end up on lipitor for a bit if they continue to climb.
I thought I was doing really well watching trigs...no dairy and minimal animal--chx or fish only--only 1-3 times per week. Only egg whites once a week. Apparently, I could do better. I didn't realize the close relation to carbs and trigs, so I am going to cut those out also. Plant based entirely and low carb.
I am really, really, really starting to see results. I am loving this shit and will be sadly disappointed if I must stop....I am willing to do anything for clear, smooth face now that I have a taste of what it feels like to not turn away from mirrors all day. I didn't realize how less oil made you look so much clearer.
