Diet (Definition)

refers to all the physical matter humans (like all living creatures) must take in on a recurring basis; only partially for energy. Like all life on planet humans are open systems which keep tearing down their structure & require intake of atoms/molecules from which to rebuild their structure. Intestinal lining cells replaced ~every 3 days. CaPO4 in bones ~every 6 years, ...Read more

Complex case: Beta blockers are known to predispose one to diabetes, which can result in elevated triglycerides. I recommend trying to change to a calcium channel blocker to control your rapid heart rate. Metformin, 500 mg 3 times daily, and Acarbose 100 mg three times daily (with meals) will lower your triglycerides. Let me know how you do. ...Read more

Need more: You need a more thorough evaluation as your lipids have more abnormalities that high triglycerides; LDL is too high and HDL is low, both bad. Please consult your doctor for advise about diet, exercise, and medication. ...Read more

Please describe a good diet specifically to lower high triglycerides?

Please describe a good diet specifically to lower high triglycerides?

Low carbohydrate: A weight-reducing and low carbohydrate diet (cut anything white by at least 50%) should have a dramatic effect. Cut alcohol to no more than 1 small drink per day. Increase exercise to 45 minutes a day. All of these should help a lot. A few meds may increase triglycerides (like Accutane and estrogen). If all else fails, fish oil in high doses is very effective. Good luck! ...Read more

In diabetic pt and high triglyceride's pt i thjnk diet ls same or not?

In diabetic pt and high triglyceride's pt i thjnk diet ls same or not?

Depends on trigs: It depends on how high the tg are. Diabetes will often cause modestly elevated triglycerides, and controlling the glucose will lower tg. The most important part of diet is weight loss. If tg are very high, eg. Over 1000, then you need to do the same, but you may have to limit dietary fat, which causes gut-derived lipoproteins (chylomicrons) to elevate. ...Read more

My HDL and triglycerides are very normal, but i have very High LDL what could be the reason? diet is minimal and not fatty,,I'm thin and have crohn's

Probably genetic: We talk little about the genetic component to LDL problems but they're actually a bigger factor than diet and exercise -- we simply can't do anything about them. And much of the traditional "wisdom" about diet and cholesterol probably isn't even true. Stay fit and be ready to accept medication should your physician and perhaps a second opinion consider it right for you. ...Read more
