Cholesterol

Cholesterol is a vital compound in the body and plays a pivotal role in various bodily functions. However, maintaining a healthy balance is key, as high levels of cholesterol, particularly low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, can lead to plaque buildup in arteries, increasing the risk of heart disease and other cardiovascular issues.

Whether you already have high cholesterol or are interested in keeping yours from elevating, choosing the cholesterol preference in the Tera App will help you take proactive steps towards managing your well-being. This preference focuses on foods low in cholesterol, and also low in saturated fat and added sugar, both of which are also highly associated with elevated cholesterol levels. 

Heart disease

Heart disease is one of the leading causes of morbidity for men and women in the USA and globally, and is a health condition strongly improved and managed through dietary choices.

Whether you have heart disease or want to avoid it, this heart-conscious preference will empower you to take the extra steps needed to improve your cardiovascular well-being by focusing on key factors that contribute to heart disease risk.

By selecting the heart disease preference in the Tera App, you’re proactively reducing saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, and added sugar in your diet – all crucial components in managing heart health. Saturated fats and dietary cholesterol can raise LDL cholesterol levels, contributing to arterial plaque buildup, while excessive sodium intake can elevate blood pressure. Additionally, added sugars have been linked to inflammation and other factors that can increase the risk of heart disease.

Hypertension

Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a significant health concern with potential far-reaching consequences. 

Through this preference, each food recommendation is ranked to support your journey towards better blood pressure control, whether you currently have high blood pressure or not.

By choosing the hypertension preference in the Tera App, you’re proactively taking steps to lower saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, and added sugar in your diet – all of which play crucial roles in influencing blood pressure levels. High intake of saturated fats and cholesterol can contribute to plaque buildup in arteries, narrowing blood vessels and increasing blood pressure. Excessive sodium consumption can lead to fluid retention and elevated blood pressure. Added sugars, on the other hand, can contribute to weight gain and insulin resistance, both of which are associated with hypertension.

Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 Diabetes, a chronic condition affecting 40 million Americans, with almost another 100 million Americans 18 and above having pre diabetes, calls for mindful dietary choices to regulate blood sugar levels and promote overall well-being. Our app’s diabetes-friendly preference is designed to empower you in making informed nutritional decisions that directly address the factors influencing blood sugar control.

By using this preference, each food recommendation is ranked to support your journey towards better blood sugar control and overall health, whether you already have type 2 diabetes, have pre diabetes or not.

By selecting the Type 2 Diabetes preference in the Tera App, you’re taking proactive steps to lower saturated fat, control carbohydrate intake within recommended ranges, and reduce added sugar consumption – all of which play vital roles in managing blood sugar levels. High saturated fat intake can lead to insulin resistance, exacerbating diabetes. Controlling carbohydrate intake helps prevent rapid spikes in blood sugar, while minimizing added sugars aids in weight management and stable blood sugar levels. Additionally, our preference emphasizes increasing dietary fiber, which helps slow digestion, improve blood sugar control, and promote a feeling of fullness.

Obesity

Being overweight or obese can pose complex health issues and require a multifaceted approach to achieve sustainable weight management. Tera’s obesity preference is meticulously crafted to empower you in making mindful dietary decisions that directly address the factors contributing to excess weight.

By using this preference in the Tera App, each food recommendation is thoughtfully ranked to support your journey towards healthier weight control and overall well-being, whether you are overweight or not.

By opting for the Obesity preference, you’re taking proactive measures to reduce saturated fat, lower overall carbohydrate intake, and minimize added sugar consumption – all of which are essential in achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. Saturated fats can contribute to weight gain and hinder overall metabolism, while controlling carbohydrate intake helps regulate blood sugar levels and prevent overconsumption. Reducing added sugars can aid in curbing excess calorie intake. This preference will also emphasize foods with dietary fiber, a necessary nutrient in promoting satiety, aiding digestion, and supporting weight loss.
