One of the causes of your high calcium is that you are on calcium, please stop it. You weight gain could be due to your high tsh.

Hdl (Definition)

HDL, or high density lipoprotein, is a molecule in the body that is responsible for the transport of lipids (fats) from various organs including blood vessels back to the liver for processing and possible elimination.

Can low thyroid cause high cholesterol?

Can low thyroid cause high cholesterol?

Endocrine effects: Thyroid hormone helps us with metabolism. If your thyroid hormone is low, your body is unable to manage the lipids appropriately and this leads to high cholesterol of the 'bad types' (triglycerides, low density lipids and very low density lipids) and lowering the good cholesterol (high density lipid). Our bodies need to be firing on all cylinders! ...Read more

Recommended food for high tg, LDL and low HDL patients?

Recommended food for high tg, LDL and low HDL patients?

Back to basics: Thanks for your data! numbers all look pretty good. Tg is only mildly elevated and would respond best to low calorie diet with focus on reducing high glycemic index foods and fructose. Tg may come down, but I am not sure there is great benefit to that. Real focus of treatment is LDL but that is great. Eat plenty of fish. Regular aerobic exercise. Maintain healthy weight. ...Read more

Could my adrenals and thyroid levels being low affect my high iron but low RBC levels?

Could my adrenals and thyroid levels being low affect my high iron but low RBC levels?

High iron: Probably not. If you have been having low RBC levels you may have been given high doses of iron. If the low RBC is not iron deficiency anemia, then iron will not help. High iron in blood can cause many problems including accumulation in the liver causing hemachromatosis. ...Read more

Are low iron levels and high bilirubin levels connected?

Are low iron levels and high bilirubin levels connected?

May be, may be not: Further evaluation is obviously needed. I can't say whether it is related or not without getting more information. In many cases- probably those two are not related. However in a case of colon cancer with metastatic disease to the liver- it can cause both increase of bilirubin level as well as low iron. Go to see your md and discuss further your condition. ...Read more

I have low creatinine, high liver enzymes, low transferrin, high ferritin, low neutrophils and high lymphocytes. what could cause this combination?

I have low creatinine, high liver enzymes, low transferrin, high ferritin, low neutrophils and high lymphocytes. what could cause this combination?

Labs: Please forgive my frankness. Labs mean little in isolation. You're already carrying the diagnosis of adrneal insufficiency and Hashimoto's; I'm concerned you have Schmidt's. The iron picture concerns me for ongoing chronic inflammation somewhere, not your Hsahimoto's; low creatinine's not a worry and just how high / low your WBC's are is the key -- these fluctuate wildly from hour to hour. ...Read more

Hdl 31mg low triglyceride s 334mg high cholesterol 209 high..Is this bad? Please ezplain..

Lipid Abnormalities: Bad is not a common word we use in medicine. This scenario is a very common type of cholesterol problem. The biggest issues with these numbers are that your lifestyle numbers--the numbers you can change--are all out of whack and putting you in danger. Eating right, exercising correctly and limiting your sugars will lower the triglycerides and raise the hdl. This is vital for you at your age. ...Read more

Losing weight through exercise and healthier eating and taking meds, but total cholesterol, non-hdl cholesterol, bilirubin, and creatinine levels high?

Losing weight through exercise and healthier eating and taking meds, but total cholesterol, non-hdl cholesterol, bilirubin, and creatinine levels high?

How high?: Slight elevation in creatinine may be due to increased muscle mass, dehydration, increased protein intake, but should be evaluated by your doctor. Slightly elevated bilirubin may be a "normal" variant or the effect of vigorous excercise. High cholesterol and non-hdl cholesterol may need additional intervention by your doctor. ...Read more

What's causing my bioavailable testosterone to be high when my total and free testosterone are both normal? I have PCOS. High MPV, low AST, low Vit D.

What's causing my bioavailable testosterone to be high when my total and free testosterone are both normal? I have PCOS. High MPV, low AST, low Vit D.

The same: The free testosterone and bioavailable testosterone are the same so I don't understand your question. The 5-hydroxytestosterone is responsible for some of the activity of testosterone especially in the skin and is influenced by both the free testosterone level and the level of the enzyme which converts it. This might be what you are thinking of. ...Read more

Cholesterol high, LDL high, HDL high, ALT high, AST high could the cause be my TSH being high from Hashimoto's?

Cholesterol high, LDL high, HDL high, ALT high, AST high could the cause be my TSH being high from Hashimoto's?

Definitely: Hypothyroidism will cause all of these metabolic problems. It commonly causes HyperCholesterolemia, and will cause your liver enzymes to elevate because of fat accumulating in the liver cells, called NASH (Non-Alcoholic SteatoHepatitis). NASH rarely actually leads to hepatic problems/failure- only has that potential if the metabolic impairment isn't fixed. The high LDL Cholesterol can hurt badly! ...Read more
