Triglycerides are 400 after taking this drug for about a year.
It seems that certain people are affected in this way. I was. I have always had good cholesterol numbers and excellent HDL/LDL ratios, as well as low/normal Triglyceride levels, checked at least yearly. With the onset of arthritis (age), I started taking Glucosamine Chrondoitin, which seemed to help my joint pain. My next routine blood test showed my Triglyceride levels up by 300%.
In casual conversation, I spoke to an MD neighbor of mine who said the same thing had happened to him (he is a runner) and he informed me of other (undocumented) reports. He stopped the Glucosamine Chrondoitin and his Triglyceride level returned to normal. I stopped taking the Glucosamine Chrondoitin and my next (and all subsequent) blood test(s) showed normal Triglyceride levels.
