I have been having a blood test and my cholesterol is too high. What does that mean?

I have been having a blood test and my cholesterol is too high. What does that mean?

Take action: The easiest way to reduce high cholesterol is by stopping high carb foods (grains, lentils, potato based items). Also avoid milk protein since it causes insulin resistance. Low carb food items such as flesh foods, eggs, non starchy vegetables, avocados, saturated fat (butter, ghee, coconut oil), olive oil are very effective.

I have emphysema. My FEV is -51. What does this mean? My Doctor says it is very bad.

I have emphysema. My FEV is -51. What does this mean? My Doctor says it is very bad.

Mis-stated: FEV is the amount of air you can force out during expiration. The usual measurement is FEV1 - the amount of air you can force out in 1 second. Both numbers are always positive - it can't be negative. I suspect you may mean that your FEV1 is 51% of predicted. That is significant. I urge you to continue all treatments prescribed, maintain follow up with your lung specialist, and join a rehab group. ...Read more
