Hello,
Thanks for your query.

Could you recheck your lipid profile value or send a scanned copy of your report?
I think the HDL, triglyceride value is wrongly mentioned.

You have a feature to upload the reports by yourself on the right side of the query page. Please utilize it, so that I can answer your query more specifically.

Awaiting your response.

Hello,
Thanks for your query.

As per your height & weight which you had mentioned your BMI is 18.6 , which means your weight is within normal range.

An HDL cholesterol level over 60 mg/dL is considered optimal. Therefore, if your HDL cholesterol level is over 100 mg/dL, you are in the high HDL cholesterol reading, considered to be protective against developing heart disease.

LDL value of less than 100 is considered as optimal. Your LDL is 154, slightly on higher side. LDL value can be kept in controlled, so don’t worry.

Triglyceride level less than 150 is considered normal, your levels are normal.

Total cholesterol less than 200 is desirable, your value is higher. However since your HDL level is high so total cholesterol/HDL ratio 2.3 which is good. Normal ratio should be less than 4. The total cholesterol/HDL ratio is more indicative of cardiovascular disease than TC (total cholesterol).

So don’t worry in all your report is ok. All you need is just to decrease LDL levels below 100. This can be done by
• Decrease saturated fat intake.
• Increase dietary fiber intake.
• Adequate aerobic exercise.

I hope I have answered your query, incase you have any further question I will be happy to help you.

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?

I am a 42 year old male in good physical health. I haven't had any previous heart related issues. My BP is 110/70 and my total cholesterol is 216 with HDL, LDL, and triglycerides all within acceptable range. I was having some chest discomfort and shortness of breath so my primary physician suggested I do a cardio stress test. The treadmill test and EKG were both normal. However, the cardiologist said that my ejection fraction was at 45% and wanted to do a retest in 6 months. I am a little concerned and wondered how serious this low EF is? Everything else was completely normal. The cardiologist didn't seem too concerned, but I am very worried. Could this EF number be the cause of my symptoms? Should I do another cardio stress test and echocardiogram sooner? Thank you for your time.

Hi, Iam 34ys male n wanted to reduce weight .So started working out in a gym. The trainer suggested to take amino acid supplements.I started taking GNC amino burst 3000. After a month when i checked the weight and fat, i found that I lost 2 kgs of weight but gained 400gms of fat. So i went to a doc and she did some tests. in the LFt test it was found that my direct bilirubin is .38mg and indirect bil is 1.83. Also SGOT is 60 U/I & SGPT is 109. I dont drink or smoke and I am a vegetarian. I also have type 2 diabetes. Because of rise in bilirubin levels my LDL cholesterol has gone up.
