Yes, higher triglycerides is associated with increased risks of heart diseases. So is low HDL cholesterol numbers. Along with diet changes, exercise helps lower the triglycerides and helps as well at raising HDL.

What are they calling super high and what suggestion have they made for lowering your triglycerides? From another thread, I read your A1 c was coming down, I assume you are eating reduced carbs which should help lower the triglycerides. Are you losing weight too? That could keep your triglycerides elevated until the weight loss has stabilized.

I do not recall the numbers because I kindof freaked out. I have lost about 15 pounds on keto OMAD over past 3 months. My BMI is around 25 now, but I need to lose at least 10 more pounds as I am small framed.

i'm not sure if my healthcare provider believes that I am exercising every day and eating as carefully as I am as I have only lost 15 or 16 pounds in 3 months, but it is SOOOOOO hard for me to lose weight because of cancer meds, antidepressants and being hypothyroid. She made no specific reccomendations for the triglycerides. I am already on statins. Should I possinly lower my fat intake? It already took so long to feel comfortable with eating a high fat diet.

With other complications, I think your diet would be best discussed with your LCHF friendly NP.

Do you use something that tracks the foods you eat - carbs, proteins, fats, calories? Your carbs and proteins may be higher than you think and maybe a little tweaking on them without adding any more fats may work for you. I know at one time I got stuck on losing weight and increasing my fat kicked it off again.

A couple of bike rides yesterday. 8 miles on the back porch on my old trainer in the afternoon, then a 15.6 mile ride with the Tuesday night riders before dark.

Not much lately, averaged around 10,000 steps and 29 floors a day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at work. I could have easily quadrupled that if I had gone thru what BH went thru this weekend.

Wednesday she had a doctor appointment with urologist for follow up on a kidney stone she didn't know she had, caught it on an x-ray looking at lower back and hip (SI joints). Decided they would do day surgery on Thursday and bust it up with a laser if they could. They did and got three big pieces out but a couple of "smaller' pieces washed back up the tube. All was well until Saturday afternoon, the pieces, probably jagged where they fractured from the original stone, began moving. Required a trip to the ER for some IV pharmaceutical relief for the pain. Feeling much better this morning, no sharp pains, only feeling like she was beat with a baseball bat.

I've had three kidney stones and all I can do is walk, walk, walk, no sitting or laying down position offers any relief. I think the total suffer score of my 3 combined were way below her one and hate that she had to go through it.

Okay, I did my regular exercise today, but I am trying to add something new. We live in Southern Colorado, in the mountains, on the side of a mountain.[with goats and chickens] There are 43 huge concrete steps from the bottom to our front door. I know, perfect for exercise. Thing is, a little over 2 years ago, I tripped on something and broke my foot, ankle, tore tendons and ligamints. It is only in the past 9 months or so that I no longer limp.
I want to start using the stairs for part of my exercise program, but I have this fear of tripping [ if you knew how I actually injured myself, you might understand. It was almost as silly as "tripping on carpet fibers."
I know I will never be running up and down the stairs, or even going quickly as I am so afraid of injuring myself again.
So, would walking at a steady, non-brisk pace up and down the stairs be good for me, or just a waste of time being as I will be going pretty slow?
By slow, I mean about one step per second. The steps are about 6 and a half high, by about 24 by 26 inches.
Thanks.

I did yoga yesterday, for the first time in months. I threw in five situps too.
