High Cholesterol, Fluctuating Blood Sugar And Uric Acid That Fluctuates?
1. What is the basis of high cholesterol not being cured?
Uric acid, cholesterol and blood sugar fluctuations are metabolic problems for which food intake and daily lifestyle are the causes. Some cholesterol-triggering foods also contain purines which cause uric acid to rise as well. Some of them are:
Animal offal such as lungs, brain, intestines, gizzard liver, gravel tripe and others Seafood such as anchovies, sardines, tuna, mackerel, shellfish, lobster and others Red meat especially those containing fat and processed meat processed by frying Alcohol where the habit alcohol consumption can increase uric acid like beer. For this reason, it is necessary to know the limits of normal values of uric acid and cholesterol so that later it is determined whether treatment needs to be done or can be reduced by diet. It is very important to maintain food intake because if you do medication without a diet, the uric acid and cholesterol content in the body will remain high. If it remains high, it can cause the risk of health problems such as kidney disease, blood vessel disorders, heart problems, and also strokes.
Changes in blood sugar itself, if still within normal limits, are certainly reasonable where the fasting blood sugar checks are less than 126 mg / dL and the blood sugar checks when less than 180 mg / dL are influenced by food intake, when was the last time to eat and also the accuracy of measuring devices. blood sugar. If your blood sugar at times is more than 200 mg / dL or your fasting blood sugar has been more than 130 mg / dL, then you can be categorized as hyperglycemia and if it persists you can be categorized as diabetes, which requires life-long treatment to manage to keep blood sugar normal. Management also returns to giving oral diabetes drugs and a low-sugar diet accompanied by other efforts such as adopting a healthy life, exercising regularly and having regular self-examinations to prevent complications from diseases such as neuropathy which causes tingling sensation, numbness in the limbs such as feet or hands and also arthritis / rheumatoid arthritis which is exacerbated by uric acid and cholesterol.
