What does an increased globulin level suggest?
Another reading from the 'LIPID PROFILE' test showed a HDL Cholesterol reading of 257.6 which is outside the normal range of 130-230. My LDL Cholesterol also gave a figure of 166.3 which is outside the normal range of 100-129. Kindly elucidate on this readings. Is there any cause for worry on my part? What do i need to be doing going forward? Thanks
Not worry but you need diet preferences!
Hi! thanks for your health query!
Globulin is increased when there is infection, inflammation, cancer or liver diseases; but you have acceptable value..therefore not to worry until you have some health problem like fever, jaundice, loss of appetite/weight etc...!
High levels of cholesterol/LDL are warning XXXXXXX indicators (for stroke, high BP etc) and you need to take fat-restricted foods, fresh fruits and vegs and also take fish/fish products, soybean/sunflower oils (rich in unsaturated fatty acids) and review the levels after 3 months.
You could see a dietician for a food plan.
Wishing you good health,
