A Link Between High Cholesterol Levels And Diabetes

By Owen Jones

Diabetes is a chronic disease which can have numerous side effects. The condition (usually) comes about as a result of the pancreas not producing enough insulin, which you require to deal with the sugar level in your blood. Having diabetes, or too much sugar in your blood can have serious results such as cataracts (treatable blindness), bad teeth and an elevated danger of general infections.

However what lots of individuals do not comprehend is that there is a link between high cholesterol levels and diabetes. This link is called macular edema and it has an effect on eyesight. If you have diabetes and high cholesterol levels, you should be paying particular attention to your diet in order to avoid macular edema

Macular edema is often a painful, non-reversible kind of blindness.

In case you are uncertain about cholesterol, it would be best if we talk about this topic in order to clarify. Individuals talk of 'cholesterol levels' because there are three measurements that are important. HDL cholesterol is frequently called 'good cholesterol' and LDL cholesterol is known as bad cholesterol.

It is important to have LDL because it assists in the production of bile and vitamin D and it helps regulate hormones, but too much of it can screen arteries and cause heart problems. HDL is 'good' because it mops up LDL and takes it back to the liver where it is disposed of.

Those are the two main levels. You might be forgiven for thinking that it is best to have as much HDL as you can, and this is the case, to a certain extent, because you do need LDL as well, but the total of both of these levels is also important. You should not have a high level of both together either.

The additional reason why these levels are more relevant to diabetics is because diabetics with a high level of LDL run approximately three times more risk of developing macular edema than non-diabetics. Therefore the danger of high cholesterol for diabetics is imperative.

This is such a significant problem that diabetics are warned to check the levels of their cholesterol very frequently. The good news is that diabetics will already be following a diet and the decreased cholesterol diet is fairly comparable and is easy to integrate into your current regime.

The foods that you ought to avoid to reduce your level of LDL cholesterol include saturated fats such as are discovered in red meat and dairy products like full-fat milk, butter, cream and cheese. It is also to be found in trans and hydrogenated fats, which are present in junk foods and cheap margarine.

The foods to eat in order to raise your level of LDL are basically mono- and poly-unsaturated fats, vegetarian foodstuffs such as fresh fruits and vegetables, soya products, fish, nuts and grains, especially whole grains. Roughage and fibre are what you ought to be searching for. Fish and olive oil are also good in the battle against LDL cholesterol.
