I had to go to colonscopy and a blood screening at the same day.

I was fastening 24h before the blood screening and my last food was some chiccoree.
I used my Vyvanse for easier fastening the day before the blood screening.
I am also vaping e-juice which contains glycerine and propylenglycol.

The blood draws say I have high triglycerines. Max should be 150 but I had 306.

Of course I am bothering these value. I had quite low cholesterine 30 HDL and 116 LDL.
I read some articeles amphetamine can release triglycerines from fat cells.

So, is it common to have too much lipids while fastening on amphetamines?

Not to my knowledge, and my doctor has always said my use of Dex is of no concern regarding obtaining accurate readings from my bloodwork.

He has witnessed how Dex drops my heart rate, which he says is odd. :p

Quoted from NCBIs

Fat-mobilizing action of amphetamine

The administration of amphetamine and methamphetamine led
to an increase in the plasma FFA concentration.
No significant changes were found in the blood glucose,
serum total fat, and triglyceride concentrations.

But this does not tell anything about fastening 24h why I hope its
an energy release from fat cells but not a fat metabolizm disorder.

Still wondering why the docs deputy asked me very serious if I
drink loads of alocohol or if I had a alcohol for breakfast before
the blood screening. It was kind of discriminating.

I have also a dropping heart rate on Vyvanse which could
be a reason we need nicotine to get a tiny adrenaline kick.

Alcohol is known to raise triglycerides is probably why they asked.

Drinking too much alcohol can actually increase your risk for heart disease and stroke, raise blood pressure, contribute to obesity, and increase the levels of fats called triglycerides in the blood.

I told her I am closed to anti-alcoholism. I had only 10 beers and 1 bottle of wine
this year. When I told her I take prescribed amphetamines she said then everything
is ok and finished the appointment. It is a huge PITA I have to research on my own
but I have another appointment at the regular doc in the same practice next week
and I hope to get a clarification about the triglycerides.

Amphetamine stigma sucks a lot!
