Tsh 5.4, T4 7.6 plus low red blood cell count, high ldl, hdl, vldl & triglycerides r high. What other test can tell me what caused my thyroid to stop?

Tsh 5.4, T4 7.6 plus low red blood cell count, high ldl, hdl, vldl & triglycerides r high. What other test can tell me what caused my thyroid to stop?

It doesn't matter: A test of antithyroid antibodies may suggest that thyroiditis caused your decline in thyroid level, but it doesn't matter since the appropriate therapy is brand name T4 replacement, no matter what the cause. Also, your minimal level of thyroid deficiency is insufficient to cause you lipid abnormalities. Look for other causes, such as genetics, weight, diet, inactivity, etc. ...Read more

Sugar can Inc. TG's: Yes, increased intake of sugars and carbohydrates in general can increase triglyceride (tg) levels and also lower the HDL cholesterol.

What is causing my cholesterol to be high and my triglycerides low?

Probably genetic: I would not worry about the low triglycerides - that is a goo thing. The high cholesterol is most likely determined by genes, though thyroid, liver and kidney disease can rarely contribute. You should have these conditions excluded, and your HDL (good) and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels checked. If the LDL cholesterol is high then you may need treatment depending on your medical and family history. ...Read more

In diabetic pt and high triglyceride's pt I thjnk diet ls same or not?

In diabetic pt and high triglyceride's pt I thjnk diet ls same or not?

Depends on trigs: It depends on how high the tg are. Diabetes will often cause modestly elevated triglycerides, and controlling the glucose will lower tg. The most important part of diet is weight loss. If tg are very high, eg. Over 1000, then you need to do the same, but you may have to limit dietary fat, which causes gut-derived lipoproteins (chylomicrons) to elevate. ...Read more

I'm wondering if I do not eat fatty food, why is my triglycerides level high?

I'm wondering if I do not eat fatty food, why is my triglycerides level high?

Weight and genes: Fasting triglyceride levels are predominantly determined by liver synthesis and how fast they are cleared from the blood. They are less affected by the amount of fat that is eaten. Liver triglyceride production increases with the usual western carbohydrate-rich diet. But the most important factors are genes and presence of obesity. If obese, weight loss can have dramatic tg lowering effects. ...Read more

Dr. Alvin Lin Dr. Lin
2 doctors agreed:

No crystal ball...: If by "reg cholesterol" you mean "total", then 187mg/dL is pretty good. We used to recommend TC less than 200mg/dL w/goal triglyceride less than 150mg/dL. So 247mg/dL is kinda high but not horribly so (that's greater than 500mg/dL) at which we can then talk to him about medicines to lower TG & risk for pancreatitis etc. Still, it would be a good idea to focus on lifestyle modification & recheck ...Read more
