Q. how high is to high sugar

I have been to surgry 3 times in 2 months and I have had my sugar go over before but not like this. I went to the Dr and Hes not worried about it. In the morning it is running 124 to 143 and 2 hrs after I eat it is running 165 to 200. At the Dr office it only showed 5.6 and He said 6.5 and over is bad! I have never sugar this high ever! It is in the family, my Mom, her Mom, her Dad ECT. What do you all think about it!
AIt seems what the doctor was referring to at the office wasn't the blood glucose (sugar) measurements but rather HbA1c - a substance in the blood that reflects the sugar levels in the PAST 8-12 weeks. Surgery is a substantial stress to your body and thus can increase your blood sugar. The A1C reflects the average levels during that time so it may overcome the temporary elevation due to the surgery.

A2because oil doesn't mix with water - the body has a way to distribute fat around.it makes up a protein that binds on molecules of fat and move around in the blood. cholesterol acts the same. there is a particle that distribute and a particle that collects cholesterol from organs- that is called HDL - High Density Lipoprotein. you want more of that in your body. the only proven way to do so is to exercise 40 minutes a day.

Q. How to lower high cholesterol?

The Doctor told my husband that his cholesterol levels are very high and that he has to lower them immediately. What foods are low in cholesterol and what foods should I be cooking for him to eat?
A1Any treatment of high cholesterol first begins with some lifestyle changes. This involves three simple, yet often difficult to execute, steps: improved diet, increased physical activity, and weight management.
Make sure your Husband is eating unsaturated fats instead of saturated and trans fats, avoiding cholesterol, increasing dietary fiber, and consuming more plant sterols/stanols. Increase his vegetables and whole grains intake, but decrease the fat, salt and sugar intakes.
Also, it will be easier for him to stick to his diet if the whole family changes their eating habits and eats healthier too. Start cooking healthy meals for the whole family and not just for him.

Q. what are the sources for high density lipoprotein?

I have heard that high density lipoprotein is good for heart. What differences does it make in heart’s health and what are the sources for high density lipoprotein?
AHi Liam, it is very important that we have high density lipoprotein (HDL) in our body. The fact is that the HDL is formed inside the body. They are known as good cholesterol as they are famous for their protection for heart against the heart diseases. It has been found that Vitamin B3 or Niacin consumption increases the count of HDL. It’s good to cut on the diet having more of saturated fats and oils, which increases the chances of heart attack.

Q. Improving High Triglycerides

I take Tricor for high triglyceride levels; I have a healthy level of total cholesterol, with low LDL, very good HDL. I am now being treated for hypothyroidism, but my doctor says that it's also genetic (I had almost the exact same level number as my brother). How can I work to get my triglycerides under control?
AHigh level of triglycerides are generally both genetic and diet related. If you are consuming a high fat containing diet then your level of triglycerides will be increased. On the other hand, regardless of your good cholesterol levels, if you start lowering the amount of fat in your food (less oil, less sweets, less red meat) and combine it with physical activity you can lower your triglycerides level, especially if you are already on medications.

Q. when is the high season of allergies?

AHigh allergy rates are seen mostly in the spring (hay-fever) or- allergic rhinitis, and the cause is thought to be related to flower and tree seeds that are more 'in the air' during spring time.

Q. High Fever - is it dangerous?

high fever over a long period can be dangerous. on the other hand it shows also that your body is working like Superman...
A1the heart surgeon knows, that if he touchs during a heart-operation this sparkle of 96°C, the patient will die. exitus for sure! the problem for the heart surgeon is, that he don't know why it is so. this is the big problem you can have with a doctor who don't know about such things. if you like to know more about this sparkle and why the patient dies, write me a mail and i will share with you a link to read about it. ask me if you don't understand me for what i try to teach you. FEVER is a healing-system nature gave us. Let it work naturally. don't make a tonsillectomy just because some do or because it is a fashion. think first about it. your tonsils have functions and we need them. they are not just decoration. my parents forced me to make a tonsillectomy because they were told to do so because i had many otitis. i would never do it to my kids. i have since 30 years from time to time pain there and i loose some blood. it hurts terribly when it is acute.
A2if your doctor will give you some antibiotics, he will in fact disturb nature and try to oppress the symptom called "fever". why disturb? every heart surgeon knows or should know, that close to our sinus node is a very hot spot - a sparkle of 96°C = 205°F. this hot spot is the reason, why your body is about 37°C = 99°C warm. now, if you have a disease and you become fever, this sparkle become stronger because the more heat it produces, the faster the heat will kill the bacteria, viruses, fungi in your body causing your illness. so let nature work for you. use the doctor to guide you. the antibiotics don't. drink a lot of water or tea to help your body to get faster rid with the trash you have accumulated. make your pees and let the trash go out of your body to give him more space. make also the big stuff on the toilets and take your time to do so. you are sick, so take more care of your body when you have fever. change more often your pyjama - not only you
