My Son is 18Yrs Old and has High Colesterol He 6'1 in Height and Weighs 221lbs. He Refuses to go to the Doctor for A Checkup. I am Overley Concerned And I am Praying that My Son will do The Right Thing. Today He Mentioned to Me His Mother He has Swollen Ankels (Water Retention) Headaches, My Son Never SLEEPS AT NIGHT AT ALL. And He is Very Fatigued with No Energy. My Son told me He Believe's He has Hypothyroidism (Underactive Thyroid) His Belief is when he looked at his Throat and seen The Large Thyroid Gland. My Son Also Believe's that he has an Iodine Deficency and if he was to take Iodine Supplements that would help his Thyroid. My Overal Concern for My Son for being Soooo Young is That He will Be Seen By His Doctor!!! I LOVE MY SON WITH ALL MY HEART AND SOUL AND DO NOT WANT TO SEE ANYTHING HAPPEN TO HIM. PLEASE DOCTORS PLEASE GIVE ME AS MY SON'S MOTHER A VALID ANSWER ON WHAT TO DO I HAVE ALL MY LOVE, FAITH AND TRUST IN JESUS CHRIST AND I KNOW THE GREAT LORD HAS PUT WISDOM INTO YOU DOCTORS TO HELP!!!!! GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU DOCTORS.........

Welcome to Health Care Magic.
Thank you for your query.
Being over weight in this age is really a cause of concern.
Swollen ankles are also a problem.
Kindly get the basic investigations done for your son viz CBP,ESR, T3,T4,TSH(CLIA),LFT.
After these ,we will guide you further.
Thank you

Hi well come to HCM.
His Hdl is acceptable, But would like to know about LDL and TRiglyceride and
VLDL as well. Ratio of LDL to HDL is very important to consider coronary risk.His
wt is not acceptable at all should think more about it.Thanks
