Triglide® is one brand in a category of drugs called fenofibrates. Fenofibrates are often prescribed by doctors, along with recommendations for changes in diet, to help patients improve one or more measures within their lipid profiles.

Triglide® is most often prescribed for patients experiencing one of the following conditions:

  • Primary Hypercholesterolemia— High levels of cholesterol in the blood
  • Mixed Dyslipidemia— High levels of LDL-C and triglycerides, often with low levels of HDL-C
  • Severe Hypertriglyceridemia— Elevated levels of triglycerides

Doctors might also consider prescribing Triglide® for patients with elevations in their lipid profiles who are not having success with their statin medications. Statins are another type of drug often prescribed to patients with high cholesterol levels.

The good news is that Triglide has been proven effective in reducing total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL-C, Apo B (another type of protein in the blood) and in increasing HDL-C.1
