Default High Triglycerides is my only problem... is that ACTUALLY a problem?

Recently my new doctor gave me a blood panel. My choloesterol has been
checked before but never my triglyceride level (that I know of) so I
always thought I was great.

Age 29
Total cholesterol 165


HDL 36

Lower than optimal.

LDL 79


Triglycerides 249

Higher than optimal.

Blood pressure good (don't remember what it was, it isn't on my form,
but it was good)
Height 6'2" wide shoulders football player build
Weight 280

You may be 110 lbs heavier than optimal.

I exercise and eat a wide variety of foods. That wide variety includes
vegetables and also includes desert, but rarely soda or alcohol. I
would *hate* to give up having a daily sugar rich desert.

It would be wiser to eat less of everything and be hungrier (have a
healthier appetite).

I would
rather go to the gym more.

That tend to make folks hungrier if they don't overdo it.

I can cut sugar for a few weeks but a
sugarless flourless lifestyle change would depress me. In fact, I get
angry when hungry.

Those who remain brainwashed to believe falsely that "hunger is bad"
tend to have very real psychophysiological manifestations arising from
this false belief.

Anyway, when I search about triglycerides it is always being linked to
other cholesterol problems and I don't have other cholesterol problems.

Actually, the low HDL is a cholesterol problem.

Also I see posts from people with sky high triglycerides. DO I REALLY
have a problem?



May GOD help you with your needs, dear neighbor whom I love

As for knowing who are the very elect, these you will know by the
unconditional love they have for everyone including their enemies
(Matthew 5:44-45, 1 Corinthians 13:3, James 2:14-17).
