Dr-

1. The answer to all your questions is NO

2. But I do have high LDL = 125

3. Yesterday I went to ER & they used ultrasound & determined there was no clot on the right leg, wher I was experiencing the warm feeling

3. So what do you this feeling can be attributed to?

4. I am traveling today on an airplane - should I take any precautions?

5. Also I have noticed in the winters my feet are usually cold- is that connected to this?

Brief Answer:
Hello again

Detailed Answer:
Your ldl levels are just slightly deranged nothing much to worry. The next step in the evaluation was ultrasound of the legs which as you have already done and is alright so just relax there is nothing to worry.

Yes there are some important things which should be taken care when you are traveling On a long duration flight is to keep yourself hydrated properly and keep on stretching your legs time to time while sitting in flight and also take a small walk in flight at regular intervals as it will help the blood to circulate properly.

Just relax and enjoy your flight.

Kind Regards
