    Forget the 5-7 servings of veggies daily.

    I have NOT brought breads into my house for about 10 + yrs....good old great healthy Romaine lettuce wraps for a sandwich type foods.

    No wonder so much diabetes, carbs galore.

    And I have NOT had cereals in many many years nor pastas. It can be done...Very sad to eat all this dead foods.

    I almost think people like to live with diabetes!!!!! So so many don't help themselves.

    A friend who has a family too of diabetics and so does she, went on a great

    Chicken and greens and no carbs and lots of water and slimmed down so much and was doing great with the diabetic issue. Don't see her much so don't know about how she is now. I know she lived at the doctors...and every G.D. drug they gave her.


    "I almost think people like to live with diabetes!!!!! So so many don't help themselves."

    That's an asinine thing to say.....Someone LIKES living with a disease? !

    Some folks just cannot adapt to the 'cardboard' diet. People eat most often by their taste-buds. IMO it's human nature to do so .

    Most diseases are genetic, bad genes ?...ya get sick. Can we hold some of them off?....I really don't think so.

    I totally disagree with you...Most of us end up being what we eat or what eats us@!!!!!

    We are the only ones with control over our disease destiny. Too many people are just plain lazy and so grab a box or a bag and eat away.

    Maybe some with family diabetes may "wake up" if faced with an amputation. It does happen.

    Mybe the's why diabetes and cardiac problem seem to run in families. I know my mom had high triglycerides and never had very high HDL.
    When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

    Not defeatist at all, realist .

    Why do you think DNA tracking has become so important lately? It is an attempt to track family history. Not looking for ones attachment to royalty , but to track medical history.

    I don't care what kind of supplements one takes, or how much they exercise....if a disease carrying gene is in that persons body, and it activates,..... that person is going to fall ill to that disease. Much of it depends on a persons immune system. If it is strong, and remains so....that person will likely live a longer/healthier life.

    There are almost always exceptions , but this or that pill, or 10 extra push-ups is not going to guarantee a healthy life.

    Like I have said before.....casino life, cigar smoking, whiskey drinking George Burns. Out lived health nut , Jack LaLanne

    Regardless of the DNA or not --- there is so MUCH we can do to control, manage and in some cases reverse the issues our DNA gives us.

    To feed the issues with more toxic foods and other poisons is in our CONTROL.

    My mother's side of the family all had arthritis and YES I live with it at 80 and it's advanced but I do all I can to keep going and read, read, read and DO what so many offer us to help manage this condition.

    I see your point & agree to a large degree but. People are not going to eat what they do not like to eat. That's just IMO human nature, if their taste buds just reject whatever ?? then they are not going to eat it, no matter how healthy it is for them.
    You hinted to them being fat & lazy, irresponsible etc. And it's just not always the case.

    True, and if those choices appeal to you ? great. But they may hold no appeal to others.

    I'm sure there are plenty in this huge population who make better choices. And many do not.

    Here's what the Mayo Clinic website says about high triglycerides:


    Why do high triglycerides matter?

    High triglycerides may contribute to hardening of the arteries or thickening of the artery walls (arteriosclerosis) — which increases the risk of stroke, heart attack and heart disease. Extremely high triglycerides can also cause acute inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis).
    High triglycerides are often a sign of other conditions that increase the risk of heart disease and stroke, including obesity and metabolic syndrome — a cluster of conditions that includes too much fat around the waist, high blood pressure, high triglycerides, high blood sugar and abnormal cholesterol levels.
    High triglycerides can also be a sign of:

    • Type 2 diabetes or prediabetes
    • Metabolic syndrome — a condition when high blood pressure, obesity and high blood sugar occur together, increasing your risk of heart disease
    • Low levels of thyroid hormones (hypothyroidism)
    • Certain rare genetic conditions that affect how your body converts fat to energy

    Sometimes high triglycerides are a side effect of taking certain medications, such as:

    • Diuretics
    • Estrogen and progestin
    • Retinoids
    • Steroids
    • Beta blockers
    • Some immunosuppressants
    • Some HIV medications

    What's the best way to lower triglycerides?

    Healthy lifestyle choices are key:

    • Exercise regularly. Aim for at least 30 minutes of physical activity on most or all days of the week. Regular exercise can lower triglycerides and boost "good" cholesterol. Try to incorporate more physical activity into your daily tasks — for example, climb the stairs at work or take a walk during breaks.
    • Avoid sugar and refined carbohydrates. Simple carbohydrates, such as sugar and foods made with white flour or fructose, can increase triglycerides.
    • Lose weight. If you have mild to moderate hypertriglyceridemia, focus on cutting calories. Extra calories are converted to triglycerides and stored as fat. Reducing your calories will reduce triglycerides.
    • Choose healthier fats. Trade saturated fat found in meats for healthier fat found in plants, such as olive and canola oils. Instead of red meat, try fish high in omega-3 fatty acids — such as mackerel or salmon. Avoid trans fats or foods with hydrogenated oils or fats.
    • Limit how much alcohol you drink. Alcohol is high in calories and sugar and has a particularly potent effect on triglycerides. If you have severe hypertriglyceridemia, avoid drinking any alcohol.

    Deb, your glucose is high, too. You really should take serious control of your diet, or you might have to be making very drastic changes before long. You simply cannot live totally on carbs and expect to remain healthy. Jasmine is right. you need to add more leafy greens and other vegetables, and healthy proteins. It isn't hard to do; just cook and eat REAL, healthy food -- not stuff out of a box.
