I was wondering if anyone else has had their triglyceride levels skyrocket after increasing sugar intake?
Mine went up from 140 to 275 after six months of adding more (whole) sugar to breakfast muffins (and also eating some cereals). Bad cholesterol also went up as did blood pressure (the highest was 191/88), but has come back down, first on meds, then via fish oil, magnesium, and vitamin e.
When I cut back on those, and increase the sugar, BP goes up again. Haven’t had triglycerides checked again yet?
I just found your post. I have had triglyceride issues for a long time due to a fatty liver. Recently my Dr. had to put me on meds mine are over the 500 range. 275 is not terrible if it continues maybe cut back on the sugar just a little.
Yes, I’m trying to cut back a little on the sugar?but hopefully won’t lose weight, as I’m extremely thin (except around my middle) and need to gain. But also don’t want to develop diabetes or pre-diabetes!
Interesting about the fatty liver. That does seem to make sense?I’m not sure what to do about it, although I guess some have tried ‘liver cleanses’ or ‘coffee enemas’ (!!!).
Dan, those are pretty high trig and BP levels if you fasted property for 8-1- hours. Abdominal obesity could explain some of that if you’re thin otherwise. Do you exercise much? Usually, high trigs are closely correlated with liver enzymes and BG. If your ALT/AST are close to 35-40, that would explain your high trigs. Check your A1c. Even though you might be thin, either your lack of energy output or high caloric intake might be moving you toward metabolic syndrome.
