Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My total cholesterol is 273 mg%, triglyceride 293 mg%, LDL cholesterol 180.4 mg/dL, VLDL 58.6 mg/dL, ratio total HDL cholesterol 8.03, blood sugar (fasting) 127 mg/dL, sugar PP 138 mg/dL, and uric acid 8.7 mg%.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

As per reports, cholesterol levels, blood sugar, and uric acid levels are higher.

Dietary recommendations as per your condition:

1. Take one tablespoon of roasted flaxseed every morning.

2. Take one tablespoon apple cider vinegar in a glass of warm water twice a day to reduce cholesterol and uric acid levels.

3. Include iceberg and lettuce in your meals to lower triglycerides.

4. Also, regular walking for 45 minutes each day will help to improve sugar and cholesterol levels.

5. Improve your water intake. Drink at least 2 to 2.6 gallons of water every day.

6. Avoid spinach, cabbage, and reduce intake of dals due to high uric acid levels. Cherry juice without sugar helps to improve the uric acid level.

7. Avoid pickles, papads, ready to eat packaged foods, and fried products.

8. Keep oil intake to five teaspoons per day.

9. To avoid getting high blood sugar in the morning, finish your dinner early by 8 PM.

If you are getting hungry in the middle of the night, you can take a glass of warm milk before sleeping. After dinner, walk for 15 minutes.

Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Thank you for the reply,

What drinks should I take and what nuts should I eat ?


Welcome back to icliniq.com.

In nuts you can take five almonds or four half walnut each day. Avoid cashew, raisins and pistachio. You can also take two dates with your breakfast cereals, go for fibre rich plain breakfast cereals. In drinks, avoid carbonated beverages, juices with sugar and too much caffeine. Instead go for green tea or coffee and fresh hone made juice without sugar. I hope this will be helpful.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
