... I didn't know that..... but the effect I mentioned, the lower ability to carry oxygen, is a side effect of the presence of high triglycerides in the blood. At least, that's what a retired medical technologist told me. ... (12 replies)
... We are trying to control my husband's high triglycerides with diet and weight reduction. ... (12 replies)
... but if I remember right, his HDL was only a couple of points below normal and his blood glucose was fine. They couldn't calculate his LDL fraction because the Triglycerides were so high. ... (12 replies)

... dl. range for triglycerides is EXTREMELY dangerous. He should be taking something to lower it immediately and work out the long term strategy at his leisure. This is a safer approach. ... (12 replies)
... WOOOOO HOOOOOO!!!! :bouncing: These are his new numbers: Total Cholesterol: 139 (was 192) Triglycerides: 248 (was 777) HDL: 34 (was 39) :( Cholesterol/hdl: 4.09 LDL:55 (couldn't even calculate it before) LDL/HDL: 1.62 (12 replies)
... I remembered wrong. I found the paperwork yesterday and his triglycerides were 700 something and his HDL was 39. ... (12 replies)
... Well, on the magic school bus this is explained : When you use your muscles you build up lactic acid ( which causes muscle fatigue) but when you breathe in oxygen goes to the lungs and transported through the blood stream to feed the body oxygen and all the waste is transported through sweat glands and exhaling. I hear drinking plenty of water and eating a banana/pottasium... (12 replies)
... but also on VLDL, which results in decreased VLDL. The VLDLs transport triglycerides to your tissues. The general tendency is that anything you do to decrease triglycerides will lower the VLDL. ... (7 replies)
... The total of 201 (presumably mg/dl) does not say much. What you want to know is HDL, LDL, and VLDL (or triglycerides). Basically, you want HDL to be high and the rest to be low. As far as height, weight, and belly, your height and weight are in the "obese" range. While some people in that range have low body fat percentage (think athletes, body builders, American...

... My diet consists of organic foods, low fat meat, water, and wine. I'm probably in the top 5% when it comes to healthy dieting. I eat a lot of olive oil, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, no trans fats, and minimal saturated fat. As far as exercise, I'm sweating 3-5 times per week. I do cardio and weights. My waistline is 36 inches and I'm 72 inches tall, so... (11 replies)
... You did not mention your diet and exercise habits, which can have a substantial effect on your blood cholesterol. HDL often increases significantly with increasing exercise. Also, avoid trans-fats from hydrogenated oils. LDL is raised by trans-fats from hydrogenated oils, which should be avoided. Unsaturated non-hydrogenated fats can help lower LDL. Triglycerides...

... than is really healthy. At the other end, muscular athletes can be "overweight", but have low body fat and not have the usual risks of too much body fat. ... (8 replies)
... I was afraid of that. You see, there's a contradiction for athletes: athlete's diets consist of 65-75% carbs, in order to BE ABLE to train as much as we do. Maybe not for the person who trains the "standard" 30min, 3 times a week. I'm talking about 5 days a week, 60-90min each time. It's pretty hard to sustain that kind of activity when you diet is low on carbs- carbs... (2 replies)
... Well, he has "prehypertension" according to the new standards recently released by the government. I've read quite appalling articles by some people who claim that there is no such catagory and that people are perfectly healthy in that range and that it's all a ploy by the drug companies to get more people on medication and thus increase profits. So, I don't know what to... (12 replies)
... I don't know exactly what Judo entails with respect to heartrate during workout, but the advantage comes best from keeping your heartrate elevated at least 20 min during exercise, e.g. when I run for 25 min, my HR stays between 145 bpm-160 bpm for the entire time. I know that I did not get this same benefit from playing football (or lets relate it back to the practices). ... (12 replies)
... Well, since his mother has adult onset diabetes, we figure that his high TG and low HDL are symptomatic of metabolic syndrome which is pretty much pre-diabetes. We think it's important to fix the problem at the source rather than mask the symptom with drugs and then he still gets diabetes in 5 years or so. What do you mean by "cardio", ubernier? Do you mean does he get... (12 replies)
... Maria: To be quite honest, I didn't feel like I was educated enough in this area to give an informed dialogue with regard to your specific question. But you certainly can get my opinion. From everything I have learned, and experienced from the high TG side of thing, and eventual MI at age 35--its not a good thing to be sure. Elevated plasma TG (or VLDL) is certainly a... (12 replies)
... blondi, My husband has a triglyceride level in the 700 range and is not taking medication for it. You can read more about his condition and the "Athletes, High Triglycerides, DMG and low O2" thread. Nobody yet has given me a good reason yet to jump on the medication bandwagon. If you don't like your doctor's assessment, but still want a doctor's approval of what you want... (21 replies)
... How come nobody wants to talk about this? :( (12 replies)
... Does this make sense to anyone else? I mean about the low oxygen causing the muscles to use the anaerobic cycle to get their energy? Does anyone have an opinion on our fix? (12 replies)
