High ATL and triglycerides, protein in urine, overweight. Is it something to be worried about?

Hi, My daughter who is an active 16yr old; just had some blood work done, her ATL and triglycerides are high. Also, she had protein in her urine . Should we be worried? She has put on about 20lbs in the past year. She is 5 9 and weighs 225. I know she is overweight but she is pretty healthy otherwise and stays really active in softball, practicing 6 days a week.

Hi there ~

It is concerning and she needs to go on medications and make lifestyle changes. Statins and fenofibrate are useful in getting her blood lipid levels down. I am highly concerned for her weight and she definitely needs to see a nutritionist and an endocrinologist. I am glad that she is active, however making these appointments is essential. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day !
