Why is My Blood Sugar Rising?

By    |   Thursday, 20 Jun 2013 12:35 PM

Question: I recently began taking soy protein and guggulipid supplements for cholesterol, and my doctor said my LDL has decreased, from 116 to 95, and my HDL has increased, from 33 to 39. But my glucose has also increased and I've been told that soy will do that. What would you recommend?

Dr. Hibberd’s answer:
 
First, congratulations. I love that you’ve had an improvement in your LDL, but you must also increase your HDL to over 50. An increase in blood glucose can raise your cardiac risks, so be sure to improve your diet — restricting calories and blood sugar-boosting carbohydrates — and increase the soluble fiber in your diet.
 
You should also have an HBA1C test to evaluate the significance of your elevated blood glucose, to be sure you don’t have diabetes or pre-diabetes. I would need to know your triglycerides to recommend any particular drug, but fish oil supplementation should be on your next order for supplements to further increase your HDL and improve your cholesterol profile.
