i am a generally healthy 16 year old girl. Not overweight, but I do have some kidney problems. Anyway, I have had fever for 2 weeks, and the doctor couldn t find anything that was wrong. She said my throat was red, but it doesn t hurt. For an hour I have had heart pain. Oh, last time I checked I have high cholesterol.
My doctor wants me to take cholesterol medication, because I have high blood pressure, which I m currently taking for. My cholesterol Chol as of 11/ 2010 is 212. HDL is 61, Trig is 95, LDL is 132 an ch/hdl ratio is 3.5. I think he would like to see the LDL at 100 although he didn t specify that and I thought he meant my total cholesterol number down to 100. Not sure. I would prefer not to take the medication. I have decreased my fat intake, but I m afraid of getting my cholesterol checked because of what he wants to do. I also eat a lot of simple carbs with I understand raises cholesterol level. What do you advise.
i am 77 suffering hair fall for the last three months now the front part is visibly thin. have been taking aten h and stovastin to keep bp and cholesterol under control. using hair garnier hair dye for two years.
Hi, I think I have heartburn but not sure-I am a 43y/o female, no history of heart problems, healthy cholesterol level, non smoker, I exercise and eat healthy. I have pain where my arms attach to my body, feel slightly nauseous, feel like I need to burp-my breathing is fine. Maybe just indigestion?-had a spicy-somewhat rich supper.
I am 65 yrs. of age and both my cholesterol and triglycerides are elevated. Total cholesterol is 257. Triglycerides are 158. HDL cholesterol is 55. The dr. threw a sample of Crestor to me and gave me a prescription as well. I threw the Crestor in the trash. Started taking Cholestoff *Complete* which is for both dietary and genetic high cholesterol (made from plants) and am suppose to take two twice daily before meals. Also am eating 3/4 cup of Quaker Oat Meal w/ cinnamon sprinkled heavily over it each day and am on a low fat diet. Have been told that niacin also helps bring down cholesterol and am wondering if you would recommend taking it. I also take fish oil daily. Am interested in natural products for lowering it. Haven t been exercising appropriately and need to do that. Both of my parents had normal cholesterol levels but my grandmother passed due to a stroke. What is your recommendation and am I on the correct path? I am totally against statins due to their many side effects. I take medication for thyroid which is Synthroid and have no other major medical problems. Thank you very much
Hello. I am a 49 year old female with good cholesterol levels and I am not overweight. I ve had some high blood pressure on and off - controlled with vitamins. Have not taken it in a while. Over the weekend it came up 159/110 several times with other readings in the 140 s/90s. Do I need to get meds as in tonight or can it wait until a doctor visit next week? Thanks.

Hi, Can you please check my blood, ecg and usg reports and let me know on which areas should I take care? Also, any suggestions on any specific diet to control the problem areas and medications if any?
