Blood cholesterol units

Common Questions and Answers about Blood cholesterol units


Avatar f tn 1 is good also good Using the US units, Your total cholesterol is high but the ratio is very good. I'd concentrate on lowing the total (both HDL and LDL). With Trig.s that low I'll assume you don't eat candy bars. I wouldn't worry about your Trig.s at all. Because the "ratio" is so good I wouldn't worry about your cholesterol but I would change, or add to your diet to lower it. And that is my take on this and probably am looking at it completely wrong(?).

Avatar m tn The data are inconclusive and I have never heard of anyone having an increased level of cholesterol due to blood pressure meds. Your LDL is very high and HDL is low, I would considers some lifestyle changes that include diet and exercise as well as a statin to help get these numbers down because high cholesterol and high BP are two modifiable risk factors and both will be benefited by diet and exercise.
Avatar f tn Anyways, been feeling off lately, so went to take a blood test. Doc said i have viral infection in my liver and also high cholesterol. Please see below for my concerns- I'm not sure what all my results mean, and was hoping could get a second opinion: -my white cell count is lower at 3.9 (normal is 4-11), and so is my lymphocytes is at 1.07 (normal is 1.5-4)- is this something to be worried about? -total protein is higher than normal at 8.4 (normal is 6.0-8.
100019 tn?1335923317 Physical Inactivity - Lack of regular physical activity can lead to weight gain, which could raise your LDL cholesterol level. Heredity - High blood cholesterol can run in families. An inherited genetic condition results in very high LDL cholesterol levels. This condition is called familial hypercholesterolemia. Age and Sex - As people get older, their LDL cholesterol levels tend to rise. Men tend to have lower HDL levels than women.

907968 tn?1292625804 Mayo Clinic, 12-10-2010 "A high blood cholesterol level increases your risk of coronary artery disease. Lower cholesterol is usually better, but in rare cases, having a low level of low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or "bad") cholesterol or a low total cholesterol level could increase your risk of some health problems. Doctors are still trying to find out more about the connection between low cholesterol and health risks".
Avatar n tn I tried only 4 units in the morning and 20 units in the night. 12 hours apart. But blood pressure become high. I stopped it.
Avatar m tn You might want to get your HDL up just a little bit, it's the good cholesterol. And your LDL, the bad cholesterol down a little. Adding a little bit more exercise and making a couple of changes to your diet with do wonders. Really though, your tests look great. Nothing over or under what it should be. You of course do not have diabetes. You might want to give your Dr a call and ask what they think of you getting a home blood pressure monitor.

5885702 tn?1376075719 Well, the second line of your report did say HBsAg screen negative. Now, can you remember whether you had vaccination against HBV when you were born or as a toddler? If not, then you may care to test your HBcAb next time.
Avatar m tn For nephrotic syndrome, your total cholesterol levels and blood pressure should be evaluated. For glomerulonephritis, a renal biopsy may be indicated to establish the type of glomerulonephritis present. If hematuria is present, the source of the bleed has to be ascertained. Your tests however, came back normal. However, if the hematuria persists then you may have to ask your physician if a renal biopsy is indicated given that all other tests returned normal.

Avatar m tn of course we are interested in the cellular content because it is there that the virus uses cholesterol and not in the blood, lowering cholesterol in the blood is almost useless so even lowering serum cholesterol to low levels the effect on virus might be very low/none, the good point is that liposomos dont stay in the blood but they enter cells directly and of course taking liposomes by mouth makes them enter fast in liver cells.
Avatar n tn I have a St. Jude mechanical mitral valve, installed in 1995. Because of blood clots, I have subsequently had a mild heart attack and mild stroke caused from blood clots. I go in for protime test every two weeks as my inr is very unstable. (My stroke happened the day after my inr tested at 2.5. At the emergency room next day, it was 1.7. (My "normal" inr has now been set at 3.5 - 4.

446896 tn?1237806342 I know I am not the only one who absolutely freaks out when having my blood pressure taken. Every time I go to the Dr's office, they always comment on how high my pulse and blood pressure are (last week when I went it was 127/92 and pulse of 133!) Ha...and those numbers arent even unusual for me! I know the pulse is high, but I don't worry about it as much just because I take it frequently at home now, and know that it is usually in the 80's when I'm at home. But the blood pressure...ugh!

594189 tn?1386920207 Elaine -- I checked out that site -- I only scored 61%, but I think that was based on the fact that my cholesterol levels didn't read the units they wanted, so the advice was to get to the doctor right away; however, my latest cholesterol readings are, in fact, in the normal range. I'm going to book mark the site, so I can check it out more fully. Lori -- you can try a quick google search for "foods that lower blood pressure". I did it brought up all kinds of info.
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.
1366363 tn?1280330984 Hello, I was always a bit fat. Eating habits in my family are very bad and so i grew up eating and drinking junk. Despite this, and although always being a bit overweight, i was always pretty much healthy. Recently i decided to make some changes. In March this year, i was weighing 80kg (i am 1,71m tall), and i started a diet. At first I cut the candy, sodas and coke. Then i started exercising 3 times a week (always cardio/fitness).
Avatar m tn I had recently some blood work for the sodium, potassium, magnesium, as well as some cardio markers, my cholesterol level is normal BUT my HDL is low (I know I can increase it by stopping smoking and taking fish oil). My adrenal glands was also tested and it's seem that my cortisol level is low, I don't have an addison disease, but it's low, same for the adrenaline-noradrenaline who is also low.
Avatar m tn ALT it self doesn't mean much, you need to do a full pannel of blood tests (test your pancreas, gabbler, diabetes, cholesterol......). 24 hours before the blood analyses you should do a low fat diet. About TSH , much be a mistake , 212 with few symptoms????, so you should test for free T3 and free T4. About fresh blood, usually could be caused by a vessel that ruptured....
