Brief Answer:
Deranged lipids...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I went through your reports with diligence. You reports are all essentially normal except for the lipids which seemed deranged. You have high levels of triglyceride and marginally elevated cholesterol value.

If you do not have past history of diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and if you have no family history of heart disease and stroke, I think the current lipid derangement can be managed by exercise and some simple dietary management - cutting off fats and oils, extra calories, junk food and with some exercise.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need any other specific information.

Regards

Thank you for the response. How about the uric acid levels in the blood? Any medication to reduce it?

Brief Answer:
Under 8 is fine..

Detailed Answer:
Uric acid level under 8 is considered ok. Your value though it's at upper high can be considered normal. I wouldn't start medications right away. You can lower the intake of purine-rich food and meat which will prevent the further rise in uric acid value.
