Lipoprotein Lipase Function
Lipases, such as lipoprotein lipase and endothelial lipase, are enzymes that breakdown circulating triglycerides (tg). Specifically, lipases degrade tg rich lipoproteins including chylomicrons, very low density lipoprotein (vldl) and remnant particles produced by breakdown of chylomicron and vldl particles. Decreased lipase function leads to accumulation of ...Read more
Lipid panel done. triglycerides 263, HDL 45, LDL 66, cholesterol 163. what would cause the high triglycerides with normal values otherwise?
It's possible to have isolated, high triglycerides. If that value was from a non-fasting test, and if you had a fatty meal before the test was done, you could see an isolated high trig level. But triglycerides at that level suggest that there may be an abnormality with lipid metabolism. Please be sure to follow up with your doctor about the results. Hope this helps. ...Read more

What does high ferritin serum 472 ng/ml f and alt(sgpt) 80 h 0-40 iu/l cholesterol 200 triglycerides92 HDL chole 40 vldl choleste 18 LDL chole142?
This is serious: You have hemochromatosis until proved otherwise, and this is probably why your alt is disturbingly high. Just how much of a workup you want is between you and your physician; a gene study, imaging, and/or a biopsy may be in your future. This is by far the easiest of the common very-serious diseases to manage. Best wishes. ...Read more
-incom. Rt. Bundle branch block
-cholesterol (total), serum by enzymatic method 208
-biochemistry lipid profile : LDL cholesterol, serum 133
Unlikely 2B related: Total and LDL cholesterol look ok, unless you have heart disease or multiple risk factors for heart disease, then LDL goal is <100. Inocmplete rbbb can be normal. Sometimes is just actually a "r s r-prime" pattern in certain electrocardiogram leads- many times a normal finding seen in healthy young military recruits. Incomplete rbbb can progress to a complete right bundle block. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
History & physical: If the pancreas is inflamed or damaged, amylase and lipase are often up, and it's not subtle. If your pancreas isn't functioning properly, you'll be losing weight with no explanation and probably have diarrhea / steatorrhea. Your physician can check your stool for pancreatic enzymes. It's rare but with a suggestive history, a screen may show something that could respond to enzyme replacement. ...Read more
Total cholesterol 159--triglycerides--49-- hdl 59-- Ldl--90-- is that normal for triglyceride..thanks?
Biometric screening. I'm 31. Triglycerides =290,HDL=53,LDL=112,Total Cholesterol=223, Cholestrol/HDL Ratio=4.2,Glucose=99,BP 111/74. Tri high. Why?
May never find "why": I'm going to assume that this is fasting sample. A lot of this is hereditary. There's not a consensus about what to do with high triglycerides when other lipids seem okay. One idea is to spend a few months exercising like you did as a teenager and then checking. I bet you'll see things change for the better. Best wishes. ...Read more
Lab:ldl:159, cholesterol:267, triglycerides:347, hdl:39, chol/hdl:6.8, tsh:9.79, free t4:0.80, testosterone:total:78/free:3.1, eosinophil:7.1.Recommendation?
Talk to your doc!: Your cholesterol & triglycerides are too high. Proper nutrition could help fix this. Your HDL is too low. Physical activity would raise this. Your TSH is too high so you may want to consider levothyroxine. Your total & free t are more difficult to interpret b/c you gave results w/o reference ranges. As i've noted before, there are many ways to check/measure testosterone so reference range is key. ...Read more
Lipid panel: ttl cholesterol- 159, hdl- 45, ldl- 102, triglycerides- 61, cholesterol/hdlc ratio- 3.5, non hdl- 114. Is this good with heart disease?
Depends on the natur: If it is coronary artery disease, then this lipid profile needs to be improved further. The goal is to get LDL down to <70mg/dl. This can be achieved with daily exercise for 30-45 minutes, avoid any saturated fats in diet or cooking and increase the dose of statin being used. Your cardiologist should help to titerate the statin dose further. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Had a lipid panel! ttl cholesterol- 159. Triglycerides- 61. Hdl- 38. Ldl- 106. Vldl- 12. Ttl cholest/hdl- 4.1. Non-hdl- 118. Is this good?
And the answer is: Total cholesterol under 200 is desirable (good) hdl less than 40 at risk of heart disease total LDL less than 100 good at 106 it is optimal. At your age i would stay/get active and watch the fried foods, junk foods. Get healthy for a lifetime and check again in 4 months and you will be suprised at how fast you can turn the numbers around. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had triage sob, hepatic panel, complete blood count, hepatic profile, basic metabolic profile, liver 1, lipid profile, hemo a1c, serum-serum all done?
Maybe: It seems as though you've had quite a few tests ordered. Whether or not you're done will likely depend on the reason why they were ordered along with the test results that you'll discuss with your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more
My lipid profile :total cholestrol(6.9), LDL cholestrol (4.5) ,hdl cholestrol (1.3) , triglycerides(2.3). What do these results mean?
High: In the USA we use mg/dl. Your TC is 266, LDL 174, HDL 50, and TG 203. Your numbers are high. If your calculated 10 year risk of heart disease based on smoking, BP, Diabetes is >7.5%, you need a statin. To calculate your risk, plug in the above numbers into: http://my.americanheart.org/professional/StatementsGuidelines/Prevention-Guidelines_UCM_457698_SubHomePage.jsp Click web version. ...Read more

Explanations for elevated bilirubin ? (indirect high, direct normal)...also normal hemoglobin, low platelets, other liver function tests normal
Need more info: About 2-3% of otherwise normal people have elevated bilirubin, usually less than 5.0 mg/dL. Gilbert's disease is a usual cause and it despite disease in the name, it does not adversely affect a person's health. If you have any symptoms, it would be prudent to see your doctor.
