Why Triglycerides Matter: Understanding the Importance of This Overlooked Marker for Your Health
Why Triglycerides Matter for Your Health
Let me tell you a story, my friend. Have you ever left the doctor's office feeling relieved that your cholesterol levels are just fine? Well, hold on just a second. There's one important marker that your doctor may have overlooked – triglycerides.
The Importance of Triglycerides
Triglycerides are a critical marker that you need to know about, and let me show you why. Take a look at this client's lab results on triglycerides – their level is 184, above the recommended range of less than 100.
But why do high levels of triglycerides matter? When you consume too many carbohydrates, your glucose levels increase, which then travels to your liver, converting it into triglycerides. And if your triglycerides level is high, it's a clear indication that you may be consuming too many carbs.
That's why knowing your triglyceride levels is just as important as knowing your cholesterol levels. It's a simple way to test if you're consuming too many carbs, and can provide an important marker for your overall health.
Take Action for Better Health
So, my friend, if you're concerned about your health, take a look at your triglyceride levels and take action to improve your diet and overall well-being. It's time to cut down on those carbs and prioritize your health.
