Modify your diet: Sounds like your TG's respond to diet. Alcohol and carbohydrates will raise TG's significantly. I would work on reducing your alcohol intake and/or reducing your simple carbohydrates. Sugars and starches such as rice, bread and pasta will raise them. You report a high number, but I really get concerned over 500. You may wa to wet with a dietician at some point. ...Read more

Is it a good sign if after improving my diet my vit d level raised 5 points in 6 months? Can my level be raised more without supplements?

Is it a good sign if after improving my diet my vit d level raised 5 points in 6 months? Can my level be raised more without supplements?

Depends...: Rather than an absolute number, where you moved on the laboratories scale is the key point. We are finding that a lot of people have low vitamin D and that goes along with a lot of minor ailments (probably at least somewhat BY COINCEDENCE.... people with poor diets might be poor, have bad dental care, smoke, etc. And have low vitamin D).
Really decent sun exposure will increase vitamin D level. ...Read more

Eat less fatty food: A lot of foods cooked on oil and fat, ghee. All of that adds to high cholesterol and triglycerides. Try to find healthier options.

Vitamin D level: Assuming that the test was a 25-hydroxy vitamin D test, a level of 20-29 ng/mL is adequate for general health needs, and some experts think a level of 30 to 80 ng/mL is best. Yes, getting daily sun will improve your vitamin D levels. Sunscreen will decrease the amount of vitamin D conversion in your skin, but sunscreen will help by protecting you from skin cancer. ...Read more

I was doing research on the web, and I found that IQ can be raised or lowered through study and or dietary supplements. Is this true?

Not true: Training and practice may help raise score on intelligence tests, but only a very little bit. But they cannot actually change IQ. Dietary supplements for sure do not. Such claims are quackery and should be ignored. Limit online research to legitimate scientific websites etc. Avoid non-professional sites and all resources with products to sell, like test training or dietary supplements. ...Read more

Dx osteoporosis & vit d insufficiency, take vit D3 & ca supplements (500mg citrate), can ca supplements be the cause to raised serum calcium?

Yes: Calcium supplements can potentially raise the serum calcium level, but in an otherwise healthy person they would typically not do so. The bigger question is why a 26 year old person would have osteoporosis, and it usually would take more than a vitamin d deficiency; if you haven't had one a thorough work up by an endocrinologist would be indicated. ...Read more

My appetite is gone. Force myself to eat. Stress? Remeron gave me an appetite but raised my triglycerides. Lexapro (escitalopram) makes nausea worse. What will help?

Get seen: I'm concerned you have a physical lesion obstructing your gut. Even if you don't, you need to find the reason. Sensible people -- even physicians -- don't buy "stress" as an easy answer. "eustress" is good -- it motivates you to excel. "distress" means you're helpless / feel helpless; if you're in an abusive situation, your physician can perhaps help u escape;are you so strung out you can't eat? ...Read more

My HDL & LDL are good but triglycerides are 220. What should I do to lower them besides taking omega 3-6-9 & garlic supplements?

Watch carbs: Simple sugars and processed carbs should be avoided or limited. This includes any flour product. The fine grind makes absorption quick, and spikes your blood sugar which increases Insulin and promotes weight gain and triglycerides. Good fats such as olive oil and coconut oil are fine in sensible amounts. Eat a rainbow of organic vegetables and 3-4 oz protein with each meal 5 hours apart. ...Read more

I think I am having an allergic reaction to floradix liquid iron supplement. I have big raised bumps all over. It started w/ my belly and has spread?

Iron rxn not rare: Allergic reactions to iron are not common but also not rare. They are seen sometimes in primary care practice. The real issue is that you're not likely allergic to iron, as it is an essential mineral and the basis of blood cells. You're likely to be allergic to a filler or buffer agent within the iron formulation. See your PCP for a consultation. ...Read more

ALT is 63, AST normal range. I am obese, high triglycerides, bad eating, and pretty sedentary. Diet and exercise to get levels down? Any supplements you would recommend in addition? I hear the liver is resilient, responds well to lifestyle changes.

Lifestyle changes: Are definitely helpful in reversing "fatty liver" due to obesity. The liver is very resilient, but recover requires major changes, which are often difficult to make and even more difficult to maintain. It requires a great deal of determination and consistency. Medications can be helpful but only along with the necessary lifestyle changes. See: http://helpdoctorwtlosstips. Blogspot. Com/ ...Read more

How important is the pH for your well being and how could raise it with supplements?

Depends on…: What ph you're referring to. Stomach ph is very acidic to help digest foods & kill germs that enter the GI tract. There r concerns that antacids & acid blockers may interfere with these functions. Blood ph ideally stays between 7.35 & 7.45 (slightly basic/alkaline); if it gets too acidic or too alkaline, the body uses many methods to restore normality to prevent damage to vital proteins & enzymes. ...Read more
