How Sugar Affects Triglycerides

Posted in LIFESTYLE CHANGES tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 5:51 pm by PCOSLady

PCOS Lady:
Do you have questions on triglycerides? I sure did like how do i lower them, what are they, etc…
Triglyceride FAQs
1. What are triglycerides?
Triglycerides are a type of fat derived from the food we eat. Any calories we take in that aren’t used right away for energy are converted into triglycerides. Triglycerides move through the blood and are stored in fat cells. Our hormones regulate when triglycerides are released from fat cells to be used as energy between meals.
2. Why should I care about my triglyceride level?
A high blood triglyceride level–called hypertriglyceridemia–increases your risk for heart disease, heart attack, and stroke. It’s linked to an increased risk for diabetes. High triglycerides are also a risk factor for chronic pancreatitis–inflammation of the pancreas.
3. What causes high triglycerides?
Excess triglycerides occur most often due to inactivity and being overweight. But they can also be triggered by high alcohol consumption, diabetes, or an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism). Hypertriglyceridemia can also be a side effect of some medications, including birth control, corticosteroids, beta blockers, and others. High triglycerides also can stem from a genetic condition.
4. How do I know if I have high triglycerides?
A simple blood test, called a fasting lipid profile, measures cholesterol and triglycerides. If you’ve had your cholesterol tested and know your numbers, it’s likely your triglycerides were included. Doctors usually recommend men and women have the test at least every five years, beginning at age 20. People who have high triglycerides or are at risk for heart disease may need to have the test more often. Ask your doctor when you should be tested.
5. What does my triglyceride level mean?
Everyone has triglycerides in their body. And at normal levels, triglycerides are healthy. Talk to your doctor if your levels are above normal.
Below are the ranges for triglyceride levels:
Normal: Less than 150 mg/dL
Borderline-high: 150 to 199 mg/dL
High: 200 to 499 mg/dL
Very high: 500 mg/dL or higher
6. What lifestyle changes can I make to lower my triglycerides or keep them under control?
If you’re overweight, reduce your calorie intake to achieve a normal weight. Exercise at least 30 minutes each day. Eat a diet low in saturated and trans fats. Drink alcohol only in moderation–one drink a day for women and two for men at most. And try to reduce your carbohydrate intake to no more than 60 percent of total calories. A diet high in carbohydrates raises triglyceride levels.
7. Are there medications that can help?
Lifestyle changes are the primary treatment for hypertriglyceridemia. But there are medications that may help some people. If your doctor prescribes medicine for high triglyceride levels, it’s still very important to exercise and eat a healthy diet.
How Sugar Affects Triglycerides
From Every Day Health site – story is deleted
Triglycerides Health Center
High-Fructose Corn Syrup May Lead to High Triglycerides
Open your fridge or cupboard, and take a look at the labels on your food. Chances are you’ll see high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), a common form of added sugar. The U.S. food supply provides a whopping 53 pounds of HFCS per person each year. That adds up to a lot of empty calories. Now a new study from Princeton University suggests that it may also lead to higher triglycerides.
Is HFCS Bad News?
HFCS is made by processing corn syrup to create a blend of two simple sugars: fructose and glucose. The result is a cheap sweetener used in a wide array of sugary drinks and processed foods, such as regular sodas, energy drinks, sweetened fruit drinks, candies, desserts, canned fruits, jams, yogurt, condiments, soups, spaghetti sauce, crackers, cereals, and breads.
In the Princeton study, rats given HFCS gained more weight than those given sucrose (a.k.a. table sugar). This was true even when their calorie intake was the same. Over a period of months, rats fed HFCS also developed higher triglycerides and abnormal increases in abdominal fat. When such changes occur together in humans, they increase the risk for heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
The Effect on Triglycerides
Scientists are just starting to sort out how HFCS and triglycerides might be linked.
Fructose vs. Glucose
There has been little research done comparing the effects of HFCS with those of pure fructose or pure glucose. Pure fructose—found naturally in fruit—is broken down and used by the body differently from glucose.
Studies show that eating a lot of fructose may raise triglyceride levels after meals. If this eating pattern continues for weeks, it may lead to higher triglyceride levels at other times, too. The triglyceride-raising effect may be stronger in men and in women after menopause than in younger women. Compared to glucose, fructose also may decrease insulin sensitivity and increase belly fat—risk factors for heart disease and diabetes that often go hand-in-hand with elevated triglycerides.
HFCS vs. Sucrose
In real life, most sugar in the U.S. diet isn’t pure fructose or glucose. Instead, it’s HFCS or sucrose. The latter are both compounds made of fructose and glucose, but there are key differences between them. First, sucrose contains equal parts fructose and glucose. But HFCS contains unequal amounts and often is a bit heavier on the fructose side. Second, the fructose molecules in HFCS, unlike those in sucrose, are “free” and “unbound.” This means they’re easier for the body to use.
Theoretically, these differences could account for the different effects seen in rats fed HFCS or sucrose. Researchers think similar effects may occur in people as well. But more research in humans is needed before any firm conclusions can be drawn.
Short and Sweet Advice
What does this mean for you? To help manage not only your triglycerides but also your weight, it’s best to limit all added sugars. That’s any form of sugar put into a food or drink during processing, cooking, or serving. The American Heart Association says such sugars should add up to no more than 150 calories (about 9 teaspoons) per day for men or 100 calories (about 6 teaspoons) per day for women.
Reaching this goal isn’t easy; the average American currently gets more than two to three times that many calories per day from sugar. But every little bit helps.
Keep reading those food labels. If you see HFCS listed there, you might want to give your food or drink choice a second thought.

Sugar, Sweetners, Stevia

Posted in LIFESTYLE CHANGES tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 10:18 pm by PCOSLady

Sugar & Sweetners
This site was advertised on TV… I felt the info was important and factual…
PCOS Lady, my opinion…. I, however will stay with white sugar, brown sugar and honey… I’m funny when it comes to manmade and processed foods… I am a firm believer people lived longer years ago and today because they consumed the basics in food…
Sugar, Honey, and High Fructose Corn Syrup
What are caloric (nutritive) sweeteners?
There are many caloric (nutritive) sweeteners like:
~ table sugar
~ honey
~ high fructose corn syrup
~ fruit juice concentrates
~ glucose
~ evaporated cane juice
~ hydrolyzed cane juice
~ fructose
~ dextrose
~ invert sugar
The most common low-calorie sweeteners approved for use today are:
~ acesulfame potassium (Ace-K)
~ aspartame
~ saccharin
~ sucralose
The most common reduced-calorie sweeteners include:
~ sorbitol
~ mannitol
~ xylitol
~ maltitol
~ maltitol syrup
~ lactitol
~ erythritol
~ isomalt
~ hydrogenated starch hydrolysates
~ Dr Art Ayers … Healthfulness of Sweeteners
Healthfulness of Sweeteners
–from Most Healthy….
~ Stevia – is a protein that is sweet, doesn’t raise blood sugar, no insulin spike and no AGE
~ Glucose – raises blood sugar, spikes insulin and produces AGE
~ Xylitol – is a sugar alcohol that inhibits dental bacteria, doesn’t raise blood sugar, no insulin spike or AGE
~ Corn Syrup – raises blood sugar, spikes insulin, produces AGE, low sweetness
~ Sucrose – raises blood sugar, spikes insulin and produces AGE, and liver damage
~ Honey – is half fructose and half glucose, raises blood sugar, spikes insulin, produces high AGE and may damage liver

~ Artificial Sweeteners, aspartame, sucralose, saccharin, etc. – don’t raise blood sugar or produce AGE, but may have other risks, including hunger

~ HFCS – is high fructose corn syrup, raises blood sugar and spikes insulin, produces very high AGE and causes liver damage
~ Fructose – doesn’t raise blood sugar or spike insulin, produces very high AGE and causes liver damage
~ Agave Nectar – is fructose, doesn’t raise blood sugar or spike insulin, produces very high AGE and causes liver damage
…to Least Healthy or Health Risk–
~ AGE: advanced glycation end products (AGEs), which contribute to the symptoms of diabetics. http://coolinginflammation.blogspot.com/search/label/AGE
Stevia, the new craze!
Stevia is a South American herb used as a natural sweetener for centuries. The leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana plant have a refreshing taste, zero glycemic index, zero calories and zero carbs. It is 25-30 times sweeter than sugar, and far more healthy!
Stevia is widely used all over the world. In Japan stevia claims over 40% of the sweetener market…
~ Pure Healing Foods, very informative!
Source: www.NaturalNews.com
Stevia has many helpful properties.
It has:
~ No sugar and no calories.
~ Anti-inflammatory effects.
~ Is 100 percent naturally derived.
~ 250 to 300 times the sweetness of sugar.
~ Heat stability to 200 degrees Celsius (392 degrees Fahrenheit).
~ No fermentation properties.
~ Flavor-enhancing qualities.
~ Plaque-retardant and Anti-caries properties to help prevent cavities.
~ Been recommended for diabetics because it does not spike insulin.
~ Anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties.
~ Been shown to lower blood pressure in those with hypertension.
Over 100 phytochemicals have been discovered in Stevia, and it is rich in terpenes and flavonoids. Besides having been in use for hundreds of years, extensive testing in animals has demonstrated no harmful effects. Its main sweet chemical, stevioside, has been found to be nontoxic in acute toxicity studies with rats, rabbits, guinea pigs, and birds. It also has been shown that it does not cause cellular changes nor affect fertility. The natural stevia leaf also has been found to be nontoxic and has no mutagenic activity.
Stevia can be used in cooking and as a tabletop sweetener.

Sugary Drinks Tied to 25,000 U.S. Deaths a Year
~ Medicine Net … By Amy Norton .. HealthDay Reporter .. Tuesday, March 19 (HealthDay News) — More than 180,000 deaths worldwide in 2010 were linked to a high intake of sugar-laden drinks, a new study estimates, including 25,000 deaths in the United States.
These latest findings do not prove that sugary drinks kill people. They only show a correlation between high consumption and deaths from heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers.
“Sugary beverage consumption is often paired with other unhealthy food choices or behaviors,” said Sandon, who was not involved in the study. “Chronic diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes, are the result of many factors, not just excess sugar intake.”
