Lowering Triglycerides - Mayo Clinic

Mayo Clinic

Mayo Clinic

Published on 9 years ago

When you go in to see the doctor, it's typical to get a blood test to check lipid levels, your cholesterol and triglycerides. You likely know it's important to lower bad cholesterol levels, because high levels increase your risk of heart attack. The same holds true for triglycerides. But what you might not know is that instead of taking medicine to lower triglycerides, most people can lower that number simply by moving more.

I walk daily and I am physically very active . I have a good diet. I rarely eat sugar and am not overweight. My TG are still high. I’m thinking it’s my genetics and that my high cholesterol is just normal for my makeup. I refuse to take a statin which makes my big Pharma MD very angry.

Muscle uses triglycerides? I thought muscle favours glucose.

Sugar is the damn devil. Not fat. Cut carbs and take a 30 minute walk everyday.

Hmpf! I work out VERY regularly - daily - bike riding, low-impact aerobics, etc. . . . everyday! And my triglycerides are at 209. It's all about exercise AND a specific diet, not just exercise! I did my research and learned what foods trigger a spike in triglycerides and started a diet. Hopefully it works.

I have lost every confidence on doctors in this country. They are there just to promote drug / medicine and collect their commission from Pharmaceutical companies. I, due to my work, lived in different parts of the world, have not seen any other nation consumes medication as much as we do in this country. Greed of pharmaceutical companies and our corrupt government have turned this nation into lab guinea piques

An associate of mind has been taking medicines because of the cholesterol clinically determined on him. Seafoods are generally not on his diet plan so a decision to go in this direction is straightforward for him. He started out making use of this specific cholesterol guidebook “Hοzantο Axy” (Google it). Several months have went by and the effects are positive, He got his cholesterol level to go lower. They don`t leave an aftertaste. .

What a load of crap. And people wonder why the Western diet is killing people. Most MDs are nothing but pill pushers for Big Pharma. Such a scam.

Did the summary say to lower carbohydrates? And that rice, white bread, and fruit juice increased Triglycerides?

Ka S

Do Triglycerides get converted Into ketones? What is the name of the energy that triglycerides make?

Check the weather... a Mayo spokeswoman is not pushing pharmaceutical pills.

Processed sugar and crappy carbs are the culprit. Just exercise is not going to bring your triglycerides down. Yes exercise helps but diet is more important.

what if your triglycerides stay at 320 for a year and you are on a restricted diet with no type of sugar and mainly eat fresh vegetables, fish, turkey and chicken and you are active


anarky4321 . 12 months ago

the very fact that you need to lower them is a lie

yeah, I agree, this is mind control bullshit that perpetrates the dogma from 50 years ago. Got to address the root of the problem - the modern industrialized diet.

In short: The American SAD diet is killing you. Want to lower Your Trigs? Simple - cut your daily carb intake to 75g to 150g  Check out Gary Taubes What If It’s All Been A Big Fat Lie? (2004) The New York Times Magazine  This is not complicated folks.
