Common Questions and Answers about Blood cholesterol definition


Avatar m tn Triglycerides 121; Total Cholesterol 176; HDL 72; LDL 80; and VLDL 24. My doctor raised my Zorcor to 80 mg per day as I was on 40mg. My ALT was 58 which is a concern. I don't know what I am doing wrong? Have a VAP and another lipid test scheduled in 3 months. It was suggested I take (Lovaza) fish oil also but I want to wait for the new Lipid test results. Presently I am on Plavix, Lopressor, Vasotec, 81 mg asprin and the Zocor. Please advise.

Avatar n tn Malcolm Kendrick's new book "The Great Cholesterol Con" is out debunking the myths about cholesterol and heart disease. This book is easy to read, quite accessible, and does a great slash-and-burn of the diet/cholesterol/heart disease hypothesis. There's not much here to disagree with. Kendrick has easily laid to waste the ideas that fat and especially saturated fat have anything to do with heart disease.
Avatar m tn Barley also seems to lower another group of blood fats called triglycerides by 6% to 16% and increase “good” high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol by 9% to 18%. Taking barley orally also seems to reduce blood pressure in people with high cholesterol. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) now allows a health claim for food products containing barley. A food product containing 0.
Avatar n tn Hello, Dr. whats your definition of condom failure and questions about my cbc blood test scores regarding globulin and total protein and If should be concered. I put a condom on, the 2 times I had intercourse, and I remember pinching the top,(both times) but not rolling all the air out of the bottom of the condom. After I ejaculated (both times)my semen did not collect in the reservoir tip.When I took the condom off, I noticed my semen in the condom dripping down to base(both times.
649848 tn?1534637300 Partly because of that, they set a lower threshold for using medicines to reduce risk. The definition of high cholesterol isn't changing, but the treatment goal is. Instead of aiming for a specific number, using whatever drugs get a patient there, the advice stresses statins such as Lipitor and Zocor and identifies four groups of people they help the most. "The emphasis is to try to treat more appropriately," said Dr.

Avatar n tn High blood pressure is a well known risk factor for stroke and heart disease. The accepted definition for increased blood pressure is 140/90mmHg. This does not mean you'll have a stroke if your BP goes over this number. But if it is persistently high over a prolonged period of time (months), then you are at high risk for a stroke.
3624762 tn?1349398652 NAME Cholesterol NORMAL RANGE 100-240 mg/dl DEFINITION Cholesterol is synthesized in the liver. It helps to build hormones, vitamins and cell membranes. EXPLANATION OF TEST RESULT High levels of cholesterol are associated with atherosclerosis and heart disease. Low levels are a marker of poor liver function. NAME CREAT (Creatinine) NORMAL RANGE 0.6-1.4 mg/dl DEFINITION This is a breakdown product of creatinine phosphate, which is a protein found in muscle.
190885 tn?1333029491 As I think I've said before, I'm not much of a fan of fasting blood sugar tests. The definition of diabetes, for example, is a fasting blood sugar above 126 and/or a number above 200 at any time. I can very easily eat a nice dessert and one hour later register 260, yet I've never seen a fasting over 115 (and it's usually, without meds, around 95 to 110).

Avatar n tn its not blood blisters,its a blood vessel under the skin like your vein pops and then there is a bruise for about 2 days then it goes away
Avatar m tn When I was dx with HCV I freaked out and quit taking everything except Lortab (no since in being an extremist). After tx my Blood Pressure and Cholesterol are fine. I contribute it to change in Life Style but who knows? I am not totally convinced HCV did not play a role in My High Blood Pressure and Cholesterol.
Avatar n tn My HDL cholesterol is 32. My LDL Cholesterol is 109. I believe this is cholesterol related,but don't exactly know-my LDH is 199, the test results list this in the high category.
Avatar f tn When blood flows to the intestines after a meal, the heart rate increases and the rest of the blood blood vessels in the body tighten down to maintain blood pressure. However, in some, such mechanisms may be not be enough to compensate and as a result blood pressure decreases. Certain disorders, especially those that can effect the autonomic nervous system can cause the condition, it is also more pronouced in those with hypertension.
Avatar m tn Just adding to above and only because I have the same problem. How can they conclude you have Atherosclerosis when it refers to: "The buildup of fats, cholesterol and other substances in and on your artery walls (plaques), which can restrict blood flow." by definition. The only thing they can see with a CT-Scan is what is referred to as "other substances" namely Calcium Phosphate depositions.
Avatar n tn We don't understand completely how to prevent the second eye from getting the problem but not smoking, keeping weight, blood pressure and cholesterol down, exercise, low-fat diet, daily aspirin all may help. Hopefully your doctors did a C-reactive protein and sedimentation rate blood test to rule out giant cell arteritis. I would confirm that with your physicians also.
Avatar n tn Other conditions that can affect blood flow would include high blood pressure, blood sugar problems, and high cholesterol. Make sure that all of these things are also checked. Regards and God bless.
1351808 tn?1276904027 In people without any symptoms of the illness, two routine blood tests can provide the diagnosis. The first is to screen for the disease; if abnormal, the test is repeated. The most commonly used screening test for diabetes is a fasting plasma glucose test, or FPG. Because diabetes is characterized by abnormally high sugar levels in the blood (also called plasma), an FPG of 126 mg/dl or higher is suggestive of the condition.
144210 tn?1273092382 NAME CBC(Complete Blood Count) NORMAL RANGE See specific tests RBC HGB WBC and Platelets DEFINITION A CBC tests for all the blood cells, including red blood cells and the different types of white blood cells. NAME Cholesterol NORMAL RANGE 100-240 mg/dl DEFINITION Cholesterol is synthesized in the liver. It helps to build hormones, vitamins and cell membranes.

Avatar m tn Hi my question is about liver enzymes going from normal to slightly elevated and back to normal again. I am 30 years old and smoker but rarely drink. Results: May 2011 AST 35 (<40) ALT 50 (<45) H gGT 59 (<50) H Total Protein 8.5 (6.5-8.5) Albumin 5.2 (3.7-5.
Avatar n tn It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol. Inositol participates in action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.
Avatar f tn Could it be something as simple as blood pressure? I have mild high blood pressure that is well controlled with 10 mg daily lisinopril. I would like to know what studies show about this.Can you help?
198506 tn?1251160515 Mom is 70 and Dad is 73. Both have their health issues, both have high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Dad conquered prostate cancer years ago and Mom, who was diagnosed with lymphoma 2 years ago, is in remission. I am at an age now where many of my friends have lost one or both parents and I find myself with thoughts of my own folks mortality.
Avatar m tn When I mention to people I have high cholesterol, they seem surprised due to my muscle definition. I feel like my issues are related to food as I feel better if I fast. It could also be due to dehydration. Water seems to go right through me. I mentioned all of this to my doctor, but she blew off the notion of it being due to food. Could food allergies cause my issues? She was unwilling to do a food allergy blood panel.
Avatar n tn I am a 54 year old male, in excellent physical conditon...except for high cholesterol...240. I excercise intensely 3-4 times a week and have a pretty much normal lifestyle..including moderate( depending upon your definition) drinking. 3-4 beers or mixed drinks, 3-4 days out of the week. My doctor just put me on Lipitor( 10mg) and my level went to 150 in just two months. Here is the rub...he didn't realize how much I drink and now tells me I have to cut way back to protect my liver.
734343 tn?1239605341 Medical illogic Let's take a closer look at high blood pressure. What actually causes high blood pressure? Many doctors would say high blood pressure is caused by a specific, measurable interaction between circulating chemicals in the human body. Thus, the ill-behaved chemical compounds are the cause of the high blood pressure and, therefore, the solution is to regulate these chemicals.
