    Eric, I fight the same fight with my doc. She's ready to jump on anything that looks above normal with a pill, but thankfully she also listens to well-researched and thought out input from the client (me); so I keep her.

    One thing that I stumbled across recently after an abnormally high (3.5x my standard deviation, so unlikely representative, yet curious) Triglyceride reading was a role that unfiltered coffee has in boosting those numbers. There's a fair amount of research in the literature out there over the last 20+ years that points to this role. My wife and I have been using a French Press for 15+ years now, and based on this information, have recently switched to a standard coffee maker with paper filters to see if that helps.

    Thanks for that link, Stef. I added that as a link to my spreadsheet that I have to break out at almost every visit with the doc.
