I keep peeing took a CBC CMP Lipid Panel Urine test all came back good! But I keep peeing?

Increased urination: If your CMP is normal, you have no diabetes nor any alterations of sodium. there is no diabetes mellitus or insipidus. Get a urine analysis and look at your urine's specific gravity. If low, you are having too many fluids causing your frequent urination. Limit your intake of water, or foods that contain it, such as fruits, juices and soups. Culture your urine to see if you have a UTI. Good luck ...Read more

Lipid Panel (Definition)

The lipid panel=measurements of cholesterol, triglycerides & Apo-A (of HDL particles) to estimate cholesterol within both High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL) & Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL) particles in water outside cells. It does not measure actual LDL or HDL particle concentrations, the key issue driving arterial disease: heart attack, stroke & peripheral arterial ...Read more

What would cause ammonia smell in nose, chronic fatigue and muscle weakness in a 32yr asthmatic mom of 4 with perfect tsh, cmp, CBC and lipid panel?

What would cause ammonia smell in nose, chronic fatigue and muscle weakness in a 32yr asthmatic mom of 4 with perfect tsh, cmp, CBC and lipid panel?

Sinus Infection: You need to have your doctor check if you have sinus infection which is one of the common complications of allergies. Sinus infection gives you a sense of 'bad smell' maybe ammoniacal or not. Not well controlled asthma and allergies in itself makes you to have chronic fatigue and muscle weakness and thus more pronounced with any infection.

The lipid panel is used to test cholesterol, high and low density lipids and lipoproteins. In general, there's are screening tests, and are not necessarily drawn for a specific reason. Without knowing your clinical information, it is tough to give guidance. ...Read more

Depends: Depends on the policies of the office. I always ask my patients to come in after multiple blood tests so I can sit down with them and explain what was done and what the tests showed - even normal ones. The biggest complaint patients have is that their doctors don't explain adequately. ...Read more

Anxiety: Glad to hear your labs are OK… or do you want us to review them? Don't see them. If normal, you may want to consider tackling your health issue that you mentioned… your anxiety.

I keep peeing and it's clear! I took a CMP, CBC, urinalysis, lipid profile!! All came back Good! I do have anxiety but I don't know why I keep peeing!

Fight or flight.: Frequent urination in anxiety can be due to muscle tension; evolutionary adaptation, a misfiring of the fight or flight response where urination makes the body lighter and it will be easier to flee and another reason is the extreme fear or even terror causes a light overload on the body causing frequency of urination. ...Read more

I had a blood test (cbc w/diff, cmp, lipid, thyroid). All were normal (other than slightly low RDW & cholesterol). Feel exhausted often. What next?

Further evaluation: There are many common causes of fatigue that have not yet been ruled out. You likely did not get adequate thyroid tests. You might have chronic infections such as lyme disease or viral infections, intestinal parasites, heavy metal toxicity, mold toxicity, corticoadrenal insufficiency, depression, vitamin or mineral deficiencies, sleep apnea, food sensitivities etc. Please see my comment:. ...Read more

What does the total cholesterol number in a lipid panel mean. My total is not the sum of my HDL and ldl.?

What does the total cholesterol number in a lipid panel mean. My total is not the sum of my HDL and ldl.?

Complicated answer: Total cholesterol is comprised of cholesterol contained in multiple particles. These are:
1. Hdl (good)
2. Ldl (very bad)
3. Vldl (bad)
4. Idl (bad)
5. Chylomicrons and remnants (bad)
6. Lp (a)

one easy way to assess your total bad cholesterol is to calculate non-hdl cholesterol by subtracting HDL from total. Some studies say this is better than ldl. Ideal levels of this are less than 130 mg/dl. ...Read more

Does my lipid panel below need to get better: total cholesterol: 178 hdl: 42 ldl: 115 trig:106 vldl:21?

Yes: Your cardiovascular risk depends on your age, presence of diabetes, high blood pressure and family history of heart disease. Also smoking. If u have more than 2 of these risk factors then aim for an LDL of less than 100. ...Read more

My total cholesterol is 149 my HDL is 42 and my LDL is 92 & my ratio is 3.5 is all lipid panel normal, high or low?

All good: Current goals: chol < 200, HDL >35, LDL <135. Your numbers all look good now, probably because you are young, and hopefully because you are exercising, are the proper weight, and are eating a prudent diet. Next time, though (like in about 2-3 years at annual exam time), request the new NMR test which will analyze the specific quality of your LDL particles to see if you have the right number & size. ...Read more

My HDL is 81, LDL is 132 and my triglycerides are 60. And lipid panel cholesterol shows 225. Can you tell me what this means please?

You're healthy: The HDL is highly protective. You're lucky. Your triglycerides are exceptionally low - also wonderful. Your LDL is normal. Your total cholesterol of 225 is meaningless since a large portion of it from hdl. ...Read more

And the answer is: Total cholesterol under 200 is desirable (good)
hdl less than 40 at risk of heart disease
total LDL less than 100 good at 106 it is optimal. At your age I would stay/get active and watch the fried foods, junk foods. Get healthy for a lifetime and check again in 4 months and you will be suprised at how fast you can turn the numbers around. ...Read more

Lipid panel done. Triglycerides 263, HDL 45, LDL 66, cholesterol 163. what would cause the high triglycerides with normal values otherwise?

Abnormal test: Hi
It's possible to have isolated, high triglycerides. If that value was from a non-fasting test, and if you had a fatty meal before the test was done, you could see an isolated high trig level. But triglycerides at that level suggest that there may be an abnormality with lipid metabolism. Please be sure to follow up with your doctor about the results. Hope this helps. ...Read more

38yr old female 5' 1" 136lbs total lipid panel 236 trig 82 HDL 76 vldl 16 LDL is 144↑ I avoid fried/greasy foods & most sugar water/coffee only. Why?

Lipid panel: Blame it on genetics. Unfortunately many lipid panel abnormalities are difficult to pin down as to root cause. Good dietary analysis of other foods, like protein and carbs is also in order. Sometimes simple adjustments to diet can make the difference. But pretty good HDL on this report. ...Read more
