I'm going for my second Murad Acne Complex blood test on Wednesday morning and it's worrying the crap out of me. My triglyceride level on my first test was 150, my derm says that if my next test is really good I might not have to get anymore tests, which is good because I'm paying for all this treatment out of pocket. I've been trying to eat well for the past 2 weeks or so, avoiding fat, cholesterol, and sugars. I'm mostly worried because I smoked a cigarette this morning (I've had 3 cigarettes in the past year, all in the last 3 weeks). Does anyone know if this will significantly affect my blood work? Should I be worried? Please alleviate my worry!Andrew..

Your question was: Worried about Accuntane blood test.

I used to smoke 4 or 5 cigarettes a day, including the day before I got my blood work done and they said my tests were perfect... I wouldn't fret about it..

I just wanted to thank those of you who answered my post last month. Thanks for yourencouragement. I saw my derm this past Thursday and he said my triglyceride level was 72! Guess that shows what a little exercise and change of diet can do. Anyhow, looks like I'm set for the rest of my course. BTW, I'm 2 months in at 60mg a day and my face is practically pimple and blackhead-free. This is my third course in 10 years, I'm really hoping this one kicks my acne for good. Good luck to you all!..

I take fish oil and milk thistle supplements to help regulate triglycerides and liver enzymes.I don't do blood tests...

That's not smart at all. There are no early warning signs of liver damage. I strongly suggest you go get blood tests to be safe...
