Heart disease is the number one killer in most countries. It is mainly caused by clogging up of the arteries by a fatty substance known as atheroma, which comes from having too much ‘fat’ in the blood. This serious process is called atherosclerosis- the condition that can lead to heart attack or stroke. There are 2 types of fat that cause damage if their levels are too high- cholesterol and triglyceride. A special blood test is taken after fasting for at least 12 hours can tell if one or both of these fats are too high.
If your triglyceride level is too high, fixing the problem is quite straightforward because it is mainly due to being overweight. It is caused by having too many calories in the diet, especially from sugar and other carbohydrates and high-calorie drinks (e.g. soft drinks and alcohol, in particular beer). The aim is to get your weight down to an ideal level.
Most people can lower the level through changing their diet. It has been shown that it is necessary to lose excess weight in order to get our cholesterol down. Foods rich in carbohydrates eg starchy foods (such as bread, rice and pasta) should be avoided.
· Keep to your ideal weight
· Take a high fibre diet eg green leafy vegetables
· Eat fish at least twice a week
· Beware of fast foods
· Avoid deep fried foods
· Take regular exercise
· Avoid biscuits in between meals
· Drink more water
· Do not smoke
It is imperative to reduce your intake of carbohydrates, and avoid all foods with a High Glycemic Index, which leads to elevated blood glucose after meals, prompting the increase of Insulin, a hormone that manages the level of blood glucose in the blood. Insulin removes glucose from the blood by turning the excess blood glucose into fats in your body, especially visceral fat around your organs and tummy.
