Will Saltine Crackers Raise Triglycerides
Yes: Elevated nonfasting triglycerides mean nothing. A nice cheese meal before your blood test will increase triglycerides. If i had elevated fasting triglycerides, i'd up my aerobic fitness program and stop worrying. As a pathologist / lab specialist, i've never had much use for 'treating lab values.' enjoy your cheese. ...Read more

Are not sugar, but: study https://www.healthtap.com/#user_questions/1237253, https://www.healthtap.com/#user_questions/6679417 & do some research on your own. I believe that some use of the mainstream substitute sweeteners are not as harmful as real sugar; at least the substitute ones had to pass up to a year of testing. Yet no one really knows, hard science trials too complex, Hi-$, time consuming, thus none done. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No : Fully 1/4 of honey nut cheerios is refined sugar. It will raise your sugar and is neutral regarding your cholesterol. If you want to meaningfully improve your diet with breakfast cereal, read the labels (i've attached the cheerios label) and look for high fiber - like raisin bran or fiber one. ...Read more
I hear when eating sugar you should eat fat too to lessen the glycemic effect. True? So vanilla lowfat yogurt's better than nonfat for weight mgmt?

Peanuts: Unsalted peanuts should be low in salt and low in carbohydrates. Nuts, in general, are a good source of protein and fats. Nuts contain monounsaturated fat, vitamin E, folic acid, magnesium, copper, protein, and fiber, and are rich in antioxidant phytochemicals. Nuts lower "bad" cholesterol levels and raise "good" cholesterol levels. Key is portion control. Don't go nuts on your nuts! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Possibly: Granola bars are high in sugar. High sugar in your diet will reduce the amount of glucuronidase enzyme available to metabolize estrogen and raise your estrogen levels.

Yes: Blood sugar will be increased twice with yogurt-covered pretzels. The yogurt and pretzels both have carbohydrate content. Carbohydrates are easily and directly converted into blood sugar, as opposed to fats and proteins. If you're concerned about a snack to eat that won't significantly increase blood sugars, stick to high-protein items like beef sticks, peanut-butter celery, or cheese. ...Read more
Diabetes Food choice: All type of foods increase after eating blood sugars. Simple carbohydrates like sugar and starches cause a rapid rise and fall. A mix of complex carbohydrate like whole grain bread, lower fat cheese and fats from grilling with low transfat oil provides a smoother rise and fall of blood sugar than would eating a high simple carbohydrate snack like processed cereal, chips, or crackers. ...Read more
No, it's not: Anybody who told you this is misinformed or worse. Anemia is not something to be trifled with. Unlike the nonsense about the sugar cane juice, your physician is obligated by law to tell you the truth. It's also standard of care to find the cause of your particular anemia (and if it's iron deficiency, why you're deficient) and explain it to you clearly. Stand up for your right to know. ...Read more
Is it better to avoid high fructose corn syrup or limit sodium, calories, and carbs during pregnancy ?
Neither: There is no evidence that any of those dietary restrictions are helpful during pregnancy. Avoiding excessive weight gain is great, but your goal for weight gain depends on your starting weight. If you are already obese (BMI > 30), then you should gain very little weight during the pregnancy, and eating a low calorie, low carb diet can help. You should NOT try to lose weight, though! ...Read more
Will eating sweet potatoes or yams help raise progesterone levels? Or rather what foods/drinks may raise progesterone levels naturally?
No, and none: Sweet potatoes and yams do not contain actual Progesterone at all, that is not a matter of debate in 2014 . Further they do not contain anything that acts like Progesterone (progestogenic), most contain plant chemical that are estrogenic in action. You can raise Progesterone by supplementing progesterone, but why do you want to do this? ...Read more
