Treatment Of Increased Levels Of Triglycerides In The Blood?
Tonight, I want to ask for women with triglyceride levels of 2187 which foods should be avoided what? thank you..
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Treatment of hypertriglyceridemia (increased levels of triglycerides in the blood) should be integrated with the treatment of metabolic syndrome, hypercholesterolemia (increased total cholesterol levels), and diabetes because all of these conditions are interrelated and can increase the risk of heart disease and blood vessels.
Treatment of hypertriglyceridemia should include:
1. Routine physical activity
2. Healthy food diet
3. Stop smoking
5. Additional supplements such as omega 3 and fish oil
Triglyceride levels> 1000 mg / dl are classified as very high and immediate treatment is needed to reduce them with the above points, otherwise risk of pancreatitis and heart disease occurs.
The recommended diet is to reduce foods with saturated fat content. The amount of saturated fat that can still be consumed is 5-6% of the total daily calorie needs, which is about 13 grams in adults.
Examples of foods that contain high saturated fat are beef with fat, lamb, pork, chicken or duck with skin, cream, cheese, butter, animal milk products, palm oil, coconut oil and others. It also needs to limit calories by reducing carbohydrates and other sweet foods.
Foods that are good for consumption include whole fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy products, fish, nuts, or whole grains.
Consult regularly with your doctor as long as your triglyceride levels are not within the normal range so that optimal treatment can be given to prevent severe complications.
That's all, hope you can help
