What are your triglycerides and HDL cholesterol? Do you care? When I ask people who are diabetic or those worried about their “cholesterol” what their trigs and HDL measures are, they rarely know. And yet these are crucial pieces of information relative to heart disease risk and the dangers of diabetes. Chapter 10 (page 61) in It’s All About the Food is short but pointed in explanation.

Diet is the essential element in both diabetes and heart disease.
