My triglycerides are high around 256 I'm 29 how bad is it do I need medication?

My triglycerides are high around 256 I'm 29 how bad is it do I need medication?

Not for TG's: We treat triglycerides with medication when they are greater than 500 mg/dl to reduce the risk of pancreatitis. If elevated >150 but less than 500, the concern is whether or not they represent risk for heart disease. This is best assessed by looking at first the LDL cholesterol, then the non-hdl cholesterol and finally either apob or LDL particle concentration. See a doc for a complete evaluation. ...Read more

I'm wondering are high ketones +3 dangerous to a diabetic already on medication?

Looks suspicious: Hi. What is your BG? Are you on insulin? Have you been missing insulin doses for awhile? Do you feel sick with nausea and vomiting? You should call or see your doctor and discuss this. If it's diabetic ketoacidosis, you need immediate attention. If it's some starving yourself/fasting thing, maybe it's OK. Hard to say, but talk to your doc to make sure you're OK. Good luck! ...Read more

What are my options if I have a high tolerance for pain medications and get migraines while I'm pregnant?

Nerve blocks: Even if oral opioids were indicated for the use of migraine headaches, I do not recommend the use of oral opioids while pregnant. Avoidance of triggers is usually the best bet. However, there are some nerve blocks, such as occipital nerve blocks that can be performed which may help with some of the symptoms of headache. ...Read more

Hypertension: Most times the reason for hypertension is not really known. If you are on treatment but it is not working then you should see your doctor to discuss. You may need a higher dose, a different medication, or combined treatment with two or more medications. If your BP still remains high then your doctor should search for possible underlying causes of "treatment resistant" hypertension. ...Read more

I would like to know what the high iron can do yo me though. It id not heridtary, I always had low iron before. I am not on any medications?

Recheck labs: It is very difficult for a person to have high iron if he does not take iron-containing supplements and doesn't have a hereditary or genetic disorder where his body holds onto iron inside the liver. People with that disorder get liver damage. One can recheck the tests, which is not just the iron level, but also ferritin, transferrin, and transferrin saturation. A doctor can discuss the results. ...Read more

My mothers sgpt does not go down even if she's taking medications. What tests does she need to have to determine the cause of this high sgpt level.

???: It evades me thinking what medicine is used to lower sgpt. If the cause of the rise of liver function is known then we can target the cause but there is no medicine that targets the sgpt. Talk to the doctor to find out the diagnosis and find out how that problem is being treated. The lowering of SGPT may not be a necessary solution and may have to stay a bit elevated. ...Read more
