Hello and welcome to heathcare magic forum!

Your reports are not normal. the triglycerides level has to be reduced .Dont worry about anything because worry can cause you to send wrong signals to your brain as stress and inturn cause you to store more fat. so what is the best thing I would suggest for you is to start having a healthy diet. and drink lots of water and try Baba Ramdev's yoga for reducing weight. you can contact me on my mail id for details on your diet.My email id is rachel.queenie@gmail.com

I am 23 years old male. 4 months back i got tested for cholesterol and my levels were: TGL: 210, LDL: 82 and HDL: 47, during that time i was having a poor lifestyle. My weight was 82Kgs (height 174 cm) with no exercise and poor diet with lots of junk and occasional chicken intake (about once in 10days). Although we have a tendency of borderline cholesterol in our family, it only occurs after the age of 60. Now 4 months later, my levels are TGL: 106, LDL: 89 and HDL: 49 with my weight: 69Kgs. I have not made any drastic changes in my lifestyle or food, just added 40mins exercise (running/jogging). I have not tried any weight loss programs, just substituted 1 meal each day by salads and giving up non-veg food completely. Now I am concerned if this could just be a temporary thing or is it now so that i have a tendency and my levels can shoot up anytime? Is this anything to do with the family tendency, or can this be explained by lifestyle issues? Can this happen without a family tendency as well? I am worried because my insurance company and doctor got me alarmed.

Hi. I am a thirty year old female. am a thirty year old female. I was diagnosed with primary hypertension at age 25. My average reading at diagnosis was 145/110, with peak reading at 185/120. In the past few years, my blood pressure readings have averaged out to slightly above normal with medications, averaging 125/95. However, yesterday I had a higher reading of 150/105 and earlier tonight my blood pressure spiked to 140/115 but has now dropped back down to 135/90. I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes at age 25 with a fasting blood sugar of 385. Now my blood sugar is in close to normal levels and is treated with Metformin and diet. My A1C is also in normal ranges. I was diagnosed with high cholesterol at age 26. At diagnosis, my total cholesterol was 310. Now it is down to 210 with medication and diet. At diagnois, my LDL cholesterol was 220 and has now dropped to 135 with medications. At diagnosis my HDL cholesterol was 75 and has now risen to 90 with my total cholesterol level being 210 at my last appointment with my cardiologist which was two weeks ago. I have been obese for most of my life and have been unable to lose much weight even with diet and exercise. At my heaviest, I weighed 285 pounds and am now down to 245 pounds which is about 110 pounds overweight. I take Metformin, Benicar, and Vytorin. Last night, I felt naseous and had waves of slight pain and pressure in my chest. I also felt pain in my jawline and left elbow area, which came and went in waves. I was sweating more than usual and was dizzy, but felt better with rest. Today I went about my normal routine, but felt dizzy when I went on my evening walk and now my left arm is numb. With my history, should I go to the ER just be sure this isn t cardiac related?
