Trigger points in my rhombhoid muscles, cortizone injections, scapular, on lisinopril, high triglycerides, vitamin D deficiency. Suggest.
Thanks for the query.
First let me reassure you that even the current LDL and Triglyceride levels reported are still within normal range. These levels are not known to cause heart disease , stroke and metabolic syndrome if your worry is about any impending health hazards.
The cortisone injections are known to rise cholesterol and triglyceride levels by unknown mechanism. They are also reversed upon withdrawing of these medicines. Now, the increase in these levels than the previous year can be due to the cortisone injections.
The half life of Cortisone injection given intramuscularly is 18 hours, so they should pass off within 5 days to one week. I just suggest to keep a check on them after 3 more months.
Hope I answered your query. Let me know if you have any follow up questions.
Thank you for the reply. Let me put it this way,
I just have a couple of other questions. The are (1) can this amount of injected cortizone also caused a deadening of the blood supply to the head of the femor and
=== Local injection of steroids in the joint space can cause such problems, definitely a muscular injection into Rhomboid muscle will not cause them.
(2) does this calcium and vitamin D deficiency also become reversed, assume I continue to supplement with Vitamin D (I do 2000 milligrams of Vitamin D3 and calcium every day), since this is the only basis I can come up for why I now have a Calcium and Vitamin D deficiency, but told to me it was slight.
=== You should continue to take these supplements, even though the effects are reversed. These supplements are needed to XXXXXXX the daily requirements at this age.
The latest American Heart Association levels for normal trigylicerides is less than or equal to 150, in the same measurement that I received my 175. I do not know what that means in terms of units, but it is based on standards and measurements of the American Heart Association.
=== The units are mg/dl. I would not like to comment much about a reputed organisation like AHA. It is good to keep the TG's under 150mg/dl during treatment. Since you are not getting treatment (medication) still I think this is good number.
Perhaps I did not need to make that clarification, because you seem to be quite knowledgeable and excellent in your communication and skills.
=== Thank you
