Brief Answer:
Elevated cholesterol and liver enzymes levels.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX

Thanks for writing to us.
I have gone through all your reports.

Besides cholesterol and liver enzymes all your reports are absolutely normal.
Your total cholesterol 288:Elevated
LDL(Bad cholesterol):Slightly Elevated
Triglycerides:229:Slightly elevated.
SGOT 39:Slightly elevated
SGPT 78:Elevated
GGT 68:Elevated.
Your blood cholesterol levels increased( Hyperlipidemia) and increased liver enzymes could be due to fatty liver which occurs due to alcohol intake or fatty food.
For my patients I would suggest life style and dietary changes as a first option to reduce cholesterol levels.
1.If you are overweight,reduce weight which plays key part in lowering lipids.
Do physical exercises at least 30-45 minutes per day.
2.If you smoke,quit smoking.If you consume alcohol restrict alcohol intake.
3.Avoid oily,fast,junk and heavy food.
4.Eat healthy vegetables and fruits.Add fiber contains food and garlic to your diet.
5.Eat fish like salmon and tuna fish which contains omega 3 fatty acids.Add nuts to your diet like almonds,walnuts,peanuts.
6.Avoid food before bed and late night food.Eat 2 hrs before bed.
7.Get enough sleep.Avoid stress.
8.Drink Plenty of water.
I would suggest you repeat the blood tests after 3 months If you will not see expected results despite of aforementioned measures then I would start Statins(Lipid lowering drugs).

Hope I have answered your query.
If you have any queries I will be happy to help you.

I am a 70 year old female. I have had IBS most of my life, but one year ago I began to be severely constipated and only having a bowel movement every seven days and only then because I have had to resort to using a laxative. I did add more fibre to my diet and am trying to drink more water. The only blood I have noticed seems to be on the outside of the stool, therefore, I think it s only because of the colon lining being irritated. I have abdominal pain everyday, which is sometimes generalized, but most recently the pain in my left lower quadrant has become quite intense. In the past month I started taking ClearLax , which is similar to Restoralax and have increased fibre and drinking more prune juice, hence, bowel movements are more frequent and softer. Having said that the pain still persists. I also experience what would seem like liver pain which seems to be in the entire liver area and is quite intense sometimes. An xray last year showed a fatty liver. I was referred to a general surgeon in Dec. 2013, and he did not examine me at the time, but booked me for a colonoscopy which I can t get an appt. for until June. He also has booked me for an MRI, but the wait time for that is extremely long, could be a year, if I m lucky. As another opinion, do you feel that this could possibly be something serious.

This is what my test results say. I am freaking out as a friend of mine just lost a kidney to cancer. I can't get an apt for a urologist for 2 weeks. Should I be worried? The right kidney measures 10.8 cm in longitudinal dimension. The left kidney measures 10 cm in longitudinal dimension. Several calcifications are seen in the left kidney, measuring up to 5 mm in the interpolar region, compatible with nonobstructing calculi. There is a probable parapelvic cyst in the upper pole of the left kidney, measuring 9 mm. There is no hydronephrosis. There is no intra-abdominal ascites. The imaged proximal portions of the aorta and IVC are unremarkable. IMPRESSION Nonobstructing left renal calculi. No hydronephrosis. Hepatic steatosis.
