Indirectly: Accutane incresases levels of a protein called apociii , which is an inhibtior of another protein apocii. Apo cii is the binding site for an important enzyme called lipoprotein lipase, which when acts on triglyceride containing particles removes or hydrolyzes triglycerides (tg's). Too much apociii (via accutane) raises tg's. High tg's are a very common cause of low hdl. Thus Accutane lowers hdl. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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.

Maintain healthy weight. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A patient with low HDL can exercise, lose weight, or take medication to raise it. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Cholesterol, a fat made by all our cells, has never been correct issue but promoted because (as 1 fat within all lipoprotein particles) it was/is cheaper to measure & if very ? (esp. Fasting) correlates with ? LDL particles. See NMR particle test many tx. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The thyroid makes thyroid hormone, the main one is t4, which is converted in other tissues to t3. An underactive thyroid makes too little thyroid hormone. You feel sluggish, bloated, constipated, cold. It is treated by taking replacement hormone levothyroxine. The thyroid also makes calcitonin, which is involved in calcium metabolism, but it is a weak hormone in ...Read more

Because it helps prevent accumulation of lipids in blood vessels, HDL cholesterol is ...Read more
