Question: Hi! i am 41 , weigh 136 lbs and I have LDL cholesterol levels 137 and HDL 54. I was recently pregnant but had a miscarriage at 8 weeks. Could there be any correlation between the miscarriage and my cholesterol levels? Does cholesterol lower progesterone?
Thank you!

No

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply

1. No. There is no correlation between cholesterol with miscarriage.

2. They dont even reduce progesterone in the body.

3. The probable cause of miscarriage in you appears to be related to your age.

4. Miscarriage is common as age increases. Especially after 35.

5. Since you are 41 the chromosomal problems of fetus in your age group is common reason for miscarriage.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

RE adverse effects of Stains.....Male age 78 . taking 80 mgm Provachol. Recent chol esterol lab result,,
fasting, 163. LDL 106, HDL 35. How is it known if the Provacol contributes to the 163 total chol ... if it would be much higher if Provacho l was decreased ?? Obviously by trying it ? also while the total is good, the need to
increase the HDL and lower the LDL(?) seems obvious. How is that best done?? Allso what are the typical
side effect of Provachol??
Hope I am clear with the questions..Awaiting an answer.
