Question: Yesterday I was diagnosed with elevated blood sugar, elevated triglycerides with high cholesterol, Hypercalcemia and Polyarthralgia. I was prescribed with Lovastatin 20 mg Co Q-10 100mg, Vitamin D3 1000, fish oil and told not to take calcium. I am concerned with the symptoms I have been having for about 20 years of feeling fatigued, sleepy, my hair falling out and thinning mainly around the frontal area, my throat feels swollen, depressed, irritable, no sex drive, I feel cloudy especially in the morning and have pain in my body. I do not feel the later issues where addressed and the symptoms I mentioned contribute to me having a less than perfect quality of life. At times I can't do normal things, it all interferes with me living a normal happy life.

Brief Answer:
Calcium abnormalities

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I went through your query and understood your concerns.

Most of your symptoms can be explained with calcium abnormalities. In our body calcium levels should be maintained with in a narrow range. Any deviations from normal range results in varied symptoms.
With correction of calcium levels, there should be improvement in your life

Raised sugar levels and cholesterol levels may not present with any symptom initially but they affect functioning of many organs in our body in later stage, if not controlled with treatment.

I appreciate you are already on treatment for raised sugar and cholesterol levels. Be compliant to them. Get regular monitoring done.

Hope I answered your query. Feel free to ask further related query.

Regards

I am a 56 year old female, 5'7", 30# overweight, recently have gone through menopause, have high cholesterol only (taking 10mg zocor) and have been "suffering" from gradual hair loss. My thyroid is fine. My grandmothers and mother had a full head of hair throughout their lives. What causes hair loss? Is this hormone related?

two months ago I did two hydrocolonics in one week. after each colonic there was gel like substances with red squiggly lines coming out and minimal blood on the toilet paper. Ever since that I have been having a problem with food feeling like it gets stuck in the middle of my chest, burping a lot and a pain in my left back shoulder blade that radiates down my arm and up to my ear. It seems like when I eat fruits and vegetables I am fine with things not getting stuck in the middle of my chest but, protein and fats may be what causes the problem. My last cbc blood work showed my WBC count is 3.8 normal range between {4.0-12.0} K/UL my NEUTROPHIL count is 36.0 normal range between {41.0-71.0} % and my LYMOPHOCYTE count is 46.9 normal rainge is {24.0-44.0}%. I have been having these types of numbers for over nine years and my doctor doesn think anything about it. after researching on line I am questioning whether I could have the hpylori infection and a peptic ulcer. I ate some fruit about a year ago that my husband brought home from a market and got a pain so bad on my right lower abdomen that I could barely walk. I went and did a hydrocolonic and was able to get through it. I also have low vitamin d- 32 reference range: 30-100 unit ng/ml I also have high cholesterol 221 {140-200)mg/dl triglycerides 33 {30-150}mg/dl HDL 87{35-65}mg/dl chol/hdl ratio 2.54 {2.00-4.50}ratio VLDL 7 {6-30} mg/dl LDL 127 {70-130}mg/dl I am 46 years old and weigh 118lbs I am 5 2 . I jog and go to the gym at least 4 times a week.. I eat very healthy.. tons of fruits and vegetables and fish and chicken.. not much sugar or breads or pastries... on weekends we do drink beer and eat somewhat off but still not too bad... I am into natural remedies. Do you have any ideas what could be going on?
