Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Your blood results are fine except cholesterol (your LDL fraction of it) and triglycerides levels. This two parameters indicates that the blood contains too much of fat and fatty like substances. This cholesterol flows with the blood to the tissues. During this process, some part of it builds-up in to the arteries walls. This is the main reason of arteriosclerosis which leads to heart diseases (heart attack), kidney diseases, brain strokes. This fatty substances also do cumulate in the liver causing fatty liver what leads to liver cirrhosis.
That is why it is very important for you to make some changes in your diet. You should avoid fatty foods and soft drinks. Increase vegetables and fiber XXXXXXX products intake. You should also be prescribed with some medicine decreasing cholesterol blood level (so called statins).
It is also advisable for you to check your blood sugar level.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.

Dear colleaggues, I'm Ingrid Hilman, MD, 58 years. had my stenting on 17 Feb, 3 stents in LAD and RCA.

Since 2 weeks ago, I develop severe headaches, esp during the iningt or when I wake up in the morning and also palpitation (heart rate > 90). I feel weak during palpitation. I do not have hypertension (my BP is between 90-110 and 70-80). I do not have obesity, smoking habits, my lab is pretty good only LDL 100.

Is this because of the herbresser that I take 3 times a day?

Other drug that I take;

- Aspirin 1 x 100 mg

- Plavix 1 x 75 mg

- Lipitor 1 x 10 mg.

Appreciate your inputs on my above complaints. Thank you very much

HI,
I'm a yoga teacher/massage therapist, age 35, 98 lbs. I often experience fast resting heart rate (up to 80 from a normal 72). I've been having faint chest pain of late. My cholesterol is 198, trig 77, HDL 79, LDL 104. Also I've had insomnia problems for many years now. Is it possible that I'm over excersizing and straining my heart?
thanks, worried
