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.

He s been experiencing the pain and swelling since August of 2010. The swelling and pain is alternating on each feet. He shows elevation on his uric acid level and responds on Naproxen. Due to his other medical condition, the provider has concern on putting him on Naproxen for a long period of time. His most recent lab results performed on 12/21/10 shows the following: Glucose: 114, Bun : 30, Creatinine 2.0, eGFR- other : 34, eGFR African American : 41, Calcium : 9.4, Total Protein : 8.6, Albumin : 3.7, Bilirubin, Total : 0.7 Alakaline Phosphatase : 121, AST : 23, ALT : 42, Sodium : 140, Potassium : 3.9, Chloride : 104, CO2: 28, Cholesterol : 137, Triglyceride : 214, HDL : 34, LDL (Calculated) :60, Cholesterol: HDL Ratio: 4.0, LDL:HdL Ratio: 1.76, VLDL (Calculate) 43, Abs.

Neutrophil : 4.4, Aba. Lymphocite: 2.1. An X-ray of his bilateral ankle taken on 12/21/10 shows moderate degenerative change. Three views of each ankle were obtained for a total of six views. Bony mineralization is normal. No fracture or acute osseous abnormality is evident. The joint spaces are well maintained with minor osteophyte formation. He is presently scheduled for his ICD battery replacement on February 4, 2011. Today, I ll take him for the following lab works: Renal Panel, 24-hr Urine Protein and Creatine and Hba1c. The patient is currently taking the following medication: Micardis 40mg once a day, Coreg 6.25 Twice a day, Furosemide 80mg Twice a day, Theragran-M once a day, Zocor 40mg once daily, Singulair 10mg once daily. I am his daughter and I am the one responsible for his health care. Thank you very much for your time. I need your guidance. I have concern about his stability prior to his scheduled procedure. I know that it is a n out-patient procedure. However, I cannot afford to overlook any other possible medical condition. I look forward to your reply.
