How long does co stay bound to hemogloben - minutes, hours, or days after leaving co contaminated room.?

Studies show carboxyhemoglobin's half-life to be about 4 hours (3-5 hr) in regular air, about 1 hour (30-90 minutes) when breathing 100% oxygen for treatment of co poisoning, and about 15-23 minutes in hyperbaric oxygen (2.5 atm). ...Read more

My LDL cholesterol was 5.2 mmol/L (upper bound was 5.2 mmol/L as well). Yet I actually have a very low body fat. Should I worry about this at all?

My LDL cholesterol was 5.2 mmol/L (upper bound was 5.2 mmol/L as well). Yet I actually have a very low body fat. Should I worry about this at all?

HDL?: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your LDL is higher than desired, but if your HDL is also high that may protect you. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
