Diabetes high triglyceride diet

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes high triglyceride diet


Avatar n tn I have read several articles relating to this. From what I understand, a high triglyceride level ALONE may not be a great contributor to heart problems...but combined with a low HDL can be. My triglyceride level is 459 and HDL 25.5. Would a simple "low fat diet" help this (limiting my fat to 40- 45 grams per day)? My Doctor gave a list of things to definitely not eat which amounts to almost 0 grams of fat allowed.
Avatar n tn Food containing red meat, dairy products (butter, oil, cream), organ meat, and high sugar can increase triglycerides. Persisting high levels can be dangerous. However with most people a diet control helps. Presence of diabetes and hypothyroidism too can cause a high triglyceride level and hence should be eliminated. Please consult your doctor regarding this. If diet control and exercise does not help, then there are drugs which can be taken to lower these. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn Don't know if hypothyroid can cause diabetes, but do know my diabetes developed after my thyroid began to enlarge.
Avatar f tn If other causes like a diet rich in fat, hereditary factors, diabetes, thyroid disorders etc are the cause, then these would need to be looked into. Take care!
1998326 tn?1447107365 I'm only 21 and I'm not obese, slightly overweight but nothing to write home about. He mentioned my triglyceride(?) were extremely high in particular and he is making me take the Glucose Test (one with the sugar drink) to see if I'm Pre Diabetic or Type 2 Diabetic. He also said my liver was terrible. I have never smoked or had any alcohol in my life, so I'm devasted. I'm also a carrier of the Celiac gene so he's testing for that too. I have PCOS but not severely. I'm so upset.
Avatar f tn Im looking for a good low choloestorol diet. Can you help direct me? Thanks.

I'd say your skin condition would most likely be due to the thyroid issues. Tingling in hands/feet is often connected with pernicious anemia (another autoimmune); however the weight loss could be a "toss up"..
Avatar f tn If you want to make him healthier, you should prepare foods that are according to the DASH diet (diet against hypertension). Give him lots of vegetables and fruits(2-4 kinds of fruits a day) and avoid fatty foods, processed foods, fast foods. A home cooked meal is always the best. He must at least eat 2 fatty fish in a week. He must do walking exercises 30 minutes everyday. If he really wanted to be strong, healthy and can live longer he must work his way to change his lifestyle.
Avatar m tn I have read that triglyceride levels are directly proportionate to carb intake (unless high tri's run in your family, then diet won't have as much of an effect). I'm sorry I can't answer your question, but keep an eye on your tri's to see how they react to your carb intake.
Avatar n tn I do recommend ground flaxseed, it has omega 3 in them and high in fibre, it will help decrease triglyceride and LDL. For your hypertension, do decrease salt intake (follow the DASH diet). The next important thing is to exercise, take medications as prescribed, monitor blood sugar & blood pressure. hope this helps!
Avatar n tn There is no definite recommendation at this time regarding medication treatment for these levels of abnormal glucose handling, but in many cases where other issues are present(such as high cholesterol, being overweight, family history of diabetes and high blood pressure) some doctors will start a low dose of Metformin. That is something you may consider discussing with your doctor as well. Take care and keep up the excellent work.
Avatar n tn It is important to aggressively control your cholesterol and you should determine what your LDL( low density cholesterol), HDL (high density cholesterol) and triglyceride levels are. You need to have your LDL below 100 and you will likely require medication.
Avatar n tn If the triglycerides are too high the LDL calculation is not valid. Triglyceride is another type of cholesterol whose significance is not well established. Very high levels (>1000) can lead to pancreatitis and other health problems. Cholesterol should be measured after an 8 hour fast. Sometimes ratios of "bad" cholesterol to "good" cholesterol are calculated with a desired ratio of less than 3 to 4.

Very high levels (>1000) can lead to pancreatitis and other health problems. Cholesterol should be measured after an 8 hour fast. Guidelines have been established as to the treatment of high cholesterol. It has been recommended that everyone over that age of 25 has their total cholesterol and HDL measured.
Avatar f tn My doctor said I have high cholesterol. Does anyone know of a good daily menu to search for. Thank you.
Avatar f tn I enjoy shopping for my food and finding new ways to make it. It is a great diet for diabetes too. My daughter, who has ADHD (never on meds for it) has calmed down with just changing our food choices...so added bonus!!! Not everyone will agree with me but I know how I feel..I feel like I am in my early 20's ( I will be 40 in Dec)...and my skin looks great, too.
Avatar n tn 150mg/dL is considered normal. Certain conditions are associated with elevated triglyceride levels including obesity, diabetes, hypothyroidism and alcohol abuse. Also, certain medications and concentrated sugars may raise triglyceride levels. Beta blockers, diretics and glucocorticoids may have an adverse effect on triglyceride levels. Excerise and dietary modification is a great initial first step.
Avatar n tn This ratio should ideally be above 24 percent. Boost your good cholesterol and lower your triglyceride levels. High triglycerides are also a very potent risk factor for heart disease. In combination, high triglycerides and low HDL levels are an even bigger risk; this ratio is far more important to your heart health than the standard good vs. bad cholesterol ratio.
Avatar m tn Diet and Natural Nutrients Effectively Treat High Triglycerides Poor blood triglycerides are the result of poor diet, lack of exercise, smoking and alcohol consumption. To correct elevated triglyceride levels, a strict diet which eliminates all sugar, refined carbohydrates, starches and wheat based foods must be followed. These foods are rapidly converted to glucose in the blood, and excess sugar is quickly transformed into triglycerides which must be stored to prevent vascular damage.
Avatar n tn The elevated liver enzymes could be due to fatty liver, which can be due to alcoholism when it is called Alcoholic fatty liver disease and the other one is Non alcoholic fatty liver disease, which is due to obesity, diabetes and high triglyceride levels. So, prevention or cure is by avoiding alcohol and treating diabetes, obesity and high triglyceride levels. You could also follow certain precautions. Avoid smoking. Avoid drugs like paracetomol and sedatives.
Avatar f tn 246 Serum Cholesterol 164 LDL, 43 hdl direct 242 Serum Triglycerides VLDL Cholesterol 40 HDL Ratio 5.7 He is on meds now for one month. But i'm really worried about him. He is neither overweight nor does his diet consist of rich or dairy food much.
1135896 tn?1278445315 Thanks - I don't mind your questions at all . . . I appreciate your thoughts. My diet isn't great. I drink too much diet soda, for sure and like candy too much. But my red meat isn't too bad - about the 4-1 ratio is about right. But I'm going to need to make some changes in diet, to be sure. I think my frustration with this news today was just that I've been told so many things about why I feel like I feel, and my last neurologist told me it was high cholesterol.
Avatar n tn ) Someone told me the LDL has two forms, one which is bad and one which is not so bad. I was also told that a low HDL/Triglyceride level was good and probably meant that I had LDL that was not the bad kind. I am somewhat concerned since I can't do much more to lower my LDL. Should I be on statins or is there another way to test my LDL?
Avatar n tn My family diseases are cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure. I am 60lbs overweight, 55 years old female. I do not drink alcohol or smoke. I love salty food. I have been mixing in my oatmeal 1 scoop of Metabolic Protein Powder at least 4 times per week. I wonder if this has something to do with my latest results. Do you have any recommendations? Should I be concerned?
Avatar f tn I am not diabetic but sometimes symptoms of hypoglycemia occurs. I have high lipids too- Total Cholesterol- 252 Triglyceride - 250 LDL - 139 HDL - 41 VLDL- 53. I have mild hypertension and acid reflux too. BP mostly remains near 120/90. I am on medication Fenotorva 20 for high lipids and Tenormin 25 for BP. Rabeparazol for acid reflux. I feel anxious whole the day. Plz tell me what should i do. Is fatty liver and high insulin reversible.
Avatar m tn If you are not overweight, it is still most likely caused by poor diet (high fat and high sugar diets especially). Insulin resistance and diabetes can also make you prone to fatty liver and nash If fatty liver progresses it is called nash (Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis), this means you that you not only have a greasy fatty liver, but you have larger deposits of fat in your liver and this can lead to serious liver disease and cirrhosis if you do not take care of yourself.
Avatar n tn How can someone have a normal LDL but still have a high triglyceride level? I thought those two went together (e.g. LDL = 112, HDL = 37, triglycerides = 171).
714128 tn?1249139986 You might try taking a good fish oil tablet, 2000 grams daily... that's what I take. Your total cholesterol is high, but so is your HDL - the good cholesterol. Have both the LDL and HDL gone up, or just the HDL? If so the MegaRed is doing what it does best, raise the good cholesterol. If I had your cholesterol test, I would mix in a Statin. You will be tested after 90 days and if you have an adverse reaction (there is only a tiny chance) the blood tests will catch it.
