Avatar m tn 6, LDL is 122.1, Triglycerides is 98 and VLDL cholesterol is 19.7. Is my cholesterol level normal or slightly high? can i take omega 3 tablets? is Nutrelite Omega 3 good?
Avatar n tn My doctor explained that a small percentage of cholesterol comes from food the rest is produced by your liver. For whatever reason I have high cholesterol even when eating practically nothing. So, don't base your decision on family history alone. If YOUR cholesterol is high then deal with that not what one of your relatives may or may not have.
Avatar m tn One supplement works through the liver just like a statin — because it is a statin, a natural one. Mevastatin is produced naturally by red rice yeast. You can add red rice yeast to your diet by picking up a container at the health foods store. (I suggest Nature's Plus Herbal Actives Red Yeast Rice Extended Release 600 mg) Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil and vitamin B3 (niacin), remain the champions of the supplements.
Avatar f tn Serum albumin is produced by the liver, occurs dissolved in blood plasma and is the most abundant blood protein in mammals. Albumin is essential for maintaining the oncotic pressure needed for proper distribution of body fluids between blood vessels and body tissues.The reference range for albumin concentrations in serum is approximately 3.5 - 5.0 g/dl So, also for albumin you are within normal range.
Avatar n tn Also keep in mind that 80 percent of the cholesterol in your blood is produced by your liver. The fat that you eat is only culprit of the 20% of your cholesterol. And do not forget that your body NEEDS cholesterol ... if you try to starve it, our liver may increase the production... Jesus.
Avatar n tn Lastly, given your high risk cardiac profile, you should be on a low total fat, sat fat diet approx 30 and 12-15 respectively. That by far is the most important thing you can do. Best of Health visit www.personalwellnesswheel.
1765695 tn?1313673183 From a research standpoint, however, many metabolic aspects of heart health - including levels of inflammatory risk factors, levels of oxidative risk factors, and blood fat levels (including level of total cholesterol) - are improved by avocado. In addition, we know that heart health is improved by intake of oleic acid (the primary fatty acid in avocado) and by intake of omega-3 fatty acids (provided by avocado in the form of alpha-linolenic acid and in the amount of 160 milligrams per cup).
Avatar m tn These included triglycerides, total cholesterol, ratio of total cholesterol to good cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, which is bad cholesterol. The authors concluded that spirulina had a “powerful” effect on lowering blood lipids, especially on triglycerides.
Avatar m tn No, not really. Cholesterol is produced by your body based on what it needs with only 10% coming from what you eat so at most malabsorption would only affect that 10%.
Avatar n tn Due to tingling and cramping sensations in my extremeties, I had gone to the doctor. Blood work showed increased lft's, T.P and surprisingly high cholesterol and LDL level. I say surprising because I had a lipid profile done end of january and my chol was 160 and LDL 84. Test in october revealed chol of 240 and LDL of 160. I had a resolved case of Hep A when I traveled to an underdeveloped country in January, but levels were fine when I tested lft's in Aug.
Avatar f tn Fewer bad effects on my muscles and less GERD, sleepiness, etc. My question is....will I absorb more...or less by taking LEvoxyl undermy tongue? I take it in the morning as soon as I wake up on the days I take a half tablet...before breakfast. On the days of whole tablet, I split it and take half in the AM and half at bedtime...both sublingually. DO different forms of levothyroxine have different absortion rates? AM I getting enough of it by taking it sublinqually?
Avatar n tn Well, sort of. Cholesterol is a necessary steroid in the body that is part of normal cell functioning. Often you hear people and doctors say that they are looking for elevated "bad cholesterol levels." But, that's not so cut and dry anymore. Most of the cholesterol in the body is produced by the liver. A significantly smaller amount comes from dietary sources, such as meat, eggs, and dairy products.

Avatar f tn The thyroid is important in metabolism, and not having the synthetic hormone the doctor prescribed in proper balance in his body can affect many aspects of your husband's well-being. The other issue is your husbands cholesterol and triglycerides. B) What is is LDL and what is his HDL? The triglycerides are obviously extremely high and this can be a high risk, because triglycerides help form plaque in blood vessels and you definitely don't want that!
193177 tn?1218694001 Here is some information i copied for you on diabetes, better for you to read this then for me to try and explain Diabetes is caused by a problem in the way your body makes or uses insulin. Insulin is needed to move glucose (blood sugar) into cells, where it is used for energy. If glucose does not get into the cells, the body cannot use it for energy. Too much glucose will then remain in the blood, causing the symptoms of diabetes. There are several types of diabetes.
Avatar n tn it would, most likely, make that problem not only come back, but, with a vengence. Gas is a common side affect unfortunately. Prednisone has more side affects than most drugs I think. I have an autoimmune problem and have been on many different kind of drugs for several problems and have found prednisone to be totally wicked in that aspect. I too am experiencing all the negative affects and have days where I want to just crawl up into a ball and cry because of it all.
Avatar f tn Milk Thistle can lower cholesterol produced by the liver and also detoxify's liver.
535822 tn?1443980380 Thank you everyone , well my BP is normal , my blood sugar is highish but not diabetic I am feeling pretty good, I got some Hibiscus tea and drank it... I am trying all the exercises especially nose breathing ...if I stay away from traditional doctors I may live to be 100 ...thanks for caring ...
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 f tn As for Vitamin E, it unfortunately hasn't proved in studies to be very effective in lowering cholesterol or blood pressure, but the studies also didn't use the complete Vitamin E, which would include mixed tocoperols and mixed tocotrienols. Again, due to your array of problems, I just wouldn't do this by yourself -- very high doses of anything can cause problems.
Avatar n tn Too little and it slows you metabolism which will cause your body to be less efficient at burning fats and more will remain in your blood in the form of cholesterol. This is the most likely cause as very few meds have any significant cholesterol raising properties. It could also be hereditary, is they a family history? Here's a link to some information on familiar hypercholesterolemia that may help; I Hope this helps!
Avatar m tn Arginine and Citrulline play critical roles in the body’s production of NO. NO is critical to our cardiovascular wellness, and Arginine, which is enhanced by Citrulline is an important component in stimulating our body’s production of nitric oxide. Arginine supplement dosage 4-6 grams a day We could add this recommended Arginine dosage in our daily vitamin supplement.
3624762 tn?1349398652 NAME Alb (Albumin) NORMAL RANGE 3.3-5.2 mg/dl DEFINITION This is the major protein in the blood, made only by the liver. It makes up the largest part of the Total Protein level. It maintains the fluid balance in your body. EXPLANATION OF TEST RESULT A low level may mean advanced liver disease, because the liver is not able to produce the normal amount. Low levels may also be due to malnutrition, kidney disease or bowel and intestinal disease.
Avatar f tn realchomp quote: "so much for the idea of not finding anyone that has experienced treatments with ozone" My statement above was pertaining to those who had hepatitis C, not bronchitis or "hand burns". That's why I said "I've been researching HCV, its treatments and talking to various folks for years on and off about it. I've never seen, met or encountered any bonafide person who was cured of HCV by ozone therapy.
Avatar n tn Yes, I know that TSH is not produced when there is too much thyroid hormones; my point is that right now, you don't have "too much" thyroid hormones, but your TSH is still very low. Have you had your pituitary gland tested?
Avatar m tn -) According to your lab results, your TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) is higher than it should be. TSH is a hormone, produced by the pituitary gland in the brain that's meant to stimulate the thyroid gland when the pituitary senses that your body doesn't have enough thyroid hormones.
Avatar f tn I am unsure of the effects of thyroid meds on the liver, but I do know that Statin Drugs to treat High Cholesterol do affect the Liver Enzymes and raise them in many people, High Cholesterol is known to be caused by thyroid disease, along with high blood pressure. Alcohol has the same effect on liver enzymes as the statin drugs, The first time I had a Lipid panel done after being prescribed Lipitor , the MD's nurse asked me if I was aheavy drinker?
Avatar m tn I have noticed if I sleep with my legs spread apart as far apart as I can get them it keeps my legs from hurting when I sleep. I recently had a physical exam my cholesterol is 131, HDL 47, LDL 73, Triglycerides 94, VLDL 19, blood pressure 69 over 120. When I was young I road my bicycle 30+ mile every day. I had not ridden a bike in 30 years I just started riding a bike again and been riding 20 miles every day for 6 months it makes my legs hurt less.
Avatar n tn I also had sharp booby pains up until the last week of July but disappeard as August came. Last HCG blood test is BFN - by far negative. I don't know what to do as I am at a lost as to why my period is very weird looking and just light. I am also feeling back pains , but it comes and goes. HPTs are all BFN I am not TTC as Im a 25 and single and broke up w/ my BF last JUNE. I don't know how it's gonna be played out but I'll take things out one step @ a time.
Avatar f tn the vet briefly suggested more testing on the liver, but was concerned that with her weakened state it might be too dangerous. Other than that, her blood work is fine. The biggest concern is that she is dehydrated (even though she drinks a ton of water), and she has a very low blood pressure. The cardiologist began talking about life expectancy in "maybe a day, maybe a week", so the prognosis isn't good at all.
