Numbers are numbers: Lab results usually are numbers, and numbers are just numbers, with little meaning unless a doctor takes in the whole picture of what's going on. The ordering doctor may or may not consider the results a problem, depending on the patient's illnesses, bodily condition, life habits, and exercise activities. It's better to have HDL at 50 or higher. TG in the 130's is ok, but 120's might be better. ...Read more

Hyperlipidemia: Good morning: your lab results look like you are an athlete. You are doing all you can naturally to keep your risk low. This is seen in the good HDL level and the low triglyceride level. Now the rest is genetics. Thus it would appear to me time to start on a statin and to add a low dose Aspirin to your daily regimen. ...Read more

Lab data: It is very difficult, if not impossible to interpret lab data in the absence of clinical information or relevance. My advice is to discuss this with the doctor who ordered these tests and not try to self-diagnose over the internet. Best wishes. ...Read more

Managed high BP. healthy diet. Exercise regularly - HIIT. Prediabetic. Cholesterol borderline.Why heart rate increase rapidly after a short day nap?

Heart rate is: regulated under autonomic control and function. Aging, glucose intolerance, medications, physical condition and hydration can all have effects on the autonomic system resulting in variability to the heart rate response to various activities. Sleeping can additionally affect the autonomic responses. I suspect this is normal physiology for you and represents your body's response to these factors. ...Read more

My HDL is 24, trig 97, total 135 i'm a 38yo male in "good health" BP 110/60ish.

Are there any long term risks in taking 6g fish oil @60%=4g of omega3?

What for?: Why do you feel the need to take so much fish oil? First of all, you are better off getting your fish oil directly from fish like wild alakan salmon or sardines. Second, high concentrations of fish oil can cause anti coagulation that can make you susceptible to bleeding. Good health will not come from a pill. ...Read more

In ICU Jan 2016 - toxic granulation, NRBC .3, atyp lymphs 6%. No diagnosis. May 2017 admitted w/ naus/vom. WBC 3.4, RBC 3.6, hgb 8. Any link?

Not relevant: The link if any with your 2016 admission may not be relevant. You are anemic and that needs to be investigated, along with your other symptoms. It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor. Wish you good health! ...Read more
