Lipidil Supra combats high levels of cholesterol and triglycerides and Lipidil Micro serves the same purpose but it is a micronized version which is supplied in 67 and 200mg. It works by promoting the dissolution and elimination of fat particles in the blood.

Lipidil Supra is usually added to a treatment regimen only when other measures have failed to produce adequate results. Often diet and exercise are enough to bring blood fats under control. Likewise it's sometimes sufficient to simply treat an underlying problem such as diabetes underactive thyroid kidney disease liver dysfunction or alcoholism. And in some cases just discontinuing a medication is enough to do the job. For instance certain water pills and beta-blocker heart medications are capable of causing a massive increase in triglyceride levels. Estrogen replacement therapy is another potential culprit.

Whatever your other treatment measures may be it's important to remember that Lipidil Supra is intended to supplement them rather than replace them outright. To get the full benefit of the medication you need to stick to the diet exercise program and other treatments your doctor prescribes. All these efforts to keep your cholesterol and triglyceride levels normal are important because together they may lower your risk of heart disease.
