Hi Jeff,
Background, I'm a vegan who eats no refined foods and low salt. I got a
comprehensive blood test back and overall it looks great, however Triglycerides
are at 189 (<150 is considered optimum) and HDL chloesterol is 30 (> 40
optimum), with everything else looking good (blood potassium is a bit high too).

It seems that a high carbohydrate diet can elevate triglycerides, which mine
certainly is. Also I have somewhat of a sweet tooth and hit the raisins and all
fruit jams, so I'm getting a lot of fruit sugars generally.

Any thoughts on these numbers, and carbohydrate intake in general? Thanks
so much.
