Health and Food

We all are Body-Mind-Spirit.
Mind seems to be more powerful than body.
Spirit seems to be more powerful than Mind and body. Know little about Body.
know very very little about Mind
We practically know nothing about Spirit/Life force/Soul/Consciousness.

Every one is unique. Good for one person may be bad for another person. Any health study should take into acccount: race, body type (like lean fat, active passive, bony muscular etc), diet, environment at place of stay like climate and pollution, type of job/work (sedantary physical, low high stressed, commercial social etc).

There is no auto diseases. There is trigger to start any action/reaction. For many problems, it is difficult to find trigger. So, they are calling it auto. Body can manage/tolerate imperfections to certain limit. Body will be able to self cure problems due to small (manageable) ups and downs. Beyond these, illeness and problems arise.

Sugar and diabetes

For the majority of healthy individuals, normal blood glucose levels are between 4.0 and 5.4 mmol/L when fasting, and up to 7.8 mmol/L two hours after eating (postprandial). It is good to aim to have your blood glucose levels in the range (4mmol/L – 8mmol/L) for 80% of the time. Everyone goes high sometimes. A high of up to 14mmol/L every now and then is okay as long as it settles back down again within the day.

The HbA1c test measures the amount of glucose that has built up in your blood over a 3-month period. The HbA1c test can be done at any time of the day. A result of 40 mmol/mol or lower is normal for people without diabetes or pre-diabetes. An HbA1c level between 41-49 mmol/mol indicates you have prediabetes (also called impaired glucose tolerance or IGT) which means you are at much higher risk of getting type 2 diabetes. If you have prediabetes, you won't necessarily develop type 2 diabetes, especially if you take steps, such as maintaining a healthy weight, exercising, and eating a balanced diet

Cholesterol and Fat

Cholesterol is important for cell function. While our body produces its own cholesterol, it also turns foods like fats into cholesterol. When blood cholesterol levels are assessed, triglyceride levels are also measured. Triglycerides are the most common type of fat that exists in food and in the body, and are also a member of the lipid family. When calories ingested in a meal are not used immediately by the body, they are converted to triglycerides and are transported to the fat cells to be stored. It is thought that elevated triglyceride levels may increase the risk of developing heart disease, particularly when associated with high LDL cholesterol levels. Acceptable blood cholesterol levels as recommended by the National Heart Foundation of New Zealand are:
Total cholesterol (TC) - less than 4.0 mmol/L
LDL cholesterol - less than 2.0 mmol/L
HDL cholesterol - greater than 1.0 mmol/L
TC/HDL ratio - less than 4.0
Triglycerides - less than 1.7 mmol/L
