Empathy is an essential trait that makes us human, which is very likely learned from parents. Psychopaths have little or no empathy & most had abusive childhoods! ...Read more

If my total cholest is 284 with HDL 100.9 and LDL 177, trig 79, ratio 2.81. What is more important the levels or the ratio? What the ratio means?

Ratios report an LDL number divided by hdl. However, cvd risk can vary by 40% a the same ratio value. This is because you can get the same ratio with different LDL or HDL values (e.g., 2000/50 or 1000/25 give the same ratio). ...Read more

For what reason do I feel way more sick now that my fever has broke?

Fevers go up N down: Just because ur fever 'broke' doesn't mean for sure that you're in the clear. You need to listen to your body and rest. Keep the chicken soup/fluids going. Take any meds that the doc ordered. If ur really feeling rotten, u may need to check in with the doc. Some things can 'suppress' the fever -like meds.
