My only symptom is fasciculations x7 months and egfr is 57, top normal creatinine (1.0). Age 35, white female, normal bmi, fit. Is it ckd?
63 yo female, resting hr 45, no hi bp, very fit/bmi 22, heart rate with only moderate exercise @185 routinely, max recorded 238. What's up?

LDL goal: Hi. No change in diet will get your LDL to goal. Your LDL is very influenced by your genetics, and minimally influenced by your diet. I would at least make sure you're not hypothyroid. Treatment with a statin is lifelong, and most people aren't that into preventive medicine. Lowering your LDL with a stain would lower your long term risk. Period. What is your family history of cardiac events? ...Read more
