Let’s find out which foods to avoid to avoid an excessive increase in the level of triglycerides in the blood.
The term triglyceride indicates a compound belonging to the class of lipids formed by the union of a molecule of glycerol with three fatty acids.
Generally, our body needs triglycerides. These organic compounds represent an excellent energy reserve and are able to protect us from low temperatures . However, an excessively high amount of triglycerides in the blood is associated with several pathologies.
Issues related to hypertriglyceridemia include an increase in bad cholesterol at the expense of the good one and numerous other pathologies . Kidney, liver and circulation problems are just a few examples, and we must not forget about obesity and diabetes.
In short, better to maintain a balanced diet . In today’s article, we will find out what foods to avoid to avoid the risk of having too high a value of triglycerides in the blood.
High triglycerides, foods to avoid
When it comes to foods to avoid in the case of high triglycerides, sugar is a prominent place. In fact, whether it is simple sucrose, fructose or honey , sugar, thanks to its glucose content, risks increasing the level of triglycerides in the blood exponentially. It is estimated that taking even 5% of the recommended daily intake of these foods increases the concentration of these neutral fats in the blood by around 35%.
Another class of foods to avoid, if you want to combat the rise in the level of triglycerides, is that of cereals and refined flours . In fact, if excessively refined, cereals and flours have a high sugar content which, as we said, do not help keep the triglyceride level in balance.
In addition, it would be best to avoid excessively fatty foods, such as certain types of meat, butter and cold cuts. Triglycerides are in fact a type of fat, to be exact what we take more easily through our diet.
In conclusion, in case of hypertriglyceridemia, it is better to stay away from alcohol , or in any case not to exceed the recommended daily doses, as it could accentuate the situation.
How to cure hypertriglyceridemia
When it comes to hypertriglyceridemia, treatment and healing times may vary from person to person. However, in most cases, two simple moves may suffice. It is about taking on a healthier lifestyle and a commitment to following a balanced diet .
Unfortunately, these two gestures will not always work. In these cases, it is necessary to consult an expert doctor who can recommend appropriate treatment.
