Response from Dr. Dieterich
Dear MVB, Thanks for the info. It is true that niacin does not effect triglycerides although I don't recall that being part of the question. As for inositol, I really don't know anything about it. Perhaps Cade can help us on that one. Niacin is not the answer if there are severe perturbations of either cholesterol or triglycerides and in my experience the side effects far outweigh the potential advantages. DTD
