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

Once the patients were abstinent from the energy drinks, no recurrent seizures were reported. Moderation please. ...Read more
Hi does consuming high levels of B6 (red bull) cause vertigo issues and if so, how long does it take for imbalance issues to go away?
Triglycerides are high, others are ok. Had serious bad reaction to tricor (fenofibrate). Anything natural that can bring trig. #'s down?
High triglycerides are from DIETARY sources but there are forms of FAMILIAL high triglycerides PLUS a VERY COMMON SYNDROME...called the "METABOLIC SYNDROME" seen with TYPE 2 (non-insulin dependent) Diabetes!
Ask your Health Care Professional about what the CAUSE of your high lipid (fat) level is since the REMEDIES DEPEND UPON THE CAUSES!
Hope this helps!

Diet and genetics: The causes are primarily a constellation of diet and your genetics. Some people are predisposed to high cholesterol and/or triglycerides and diet may have little to no effect. Most people fall somewhere in the middle and controlling your weight usually has the greatest positive effect. You will need to consult your physician to see if medications are needed for further reductions. ...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. This is often associated with Insulin resistance, or pre-diabetes. There are some who have genetic causes of high tg's, and often for them, fat restriction is more important than sugar restriction. Important to understand the cause to best determine treatment. ...Read more
Medications?: These 2 tests are not directly related. Tg is a cholesterol test, and is related to intake of starch and sugars (carbs). Alt is a liver function test. It is possible, however, that a medication you may be taking to lower your cholesterol could be raising your alt. ...Read more
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
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
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
Some controversy: The full discussion is beyond the scope of this forum and a exact level is unkown, ill keep it a general discussion. The total cholesteral and LDL levels are the primary treatment targets for most drs. High trigs shouldn't be ignored and if really high can cause pancreatitis. Also high trigs can be sign of poorly contolled diabetes.Trigs are part of non-hdl chol calculation as well & is prognostic. ...Read more

What are the different causes of high LDL and high triglyceride and how to improve them respectively?
Carbs & Body Fat 1st: Keep in mind: LDL are complex particles with thousands of fat molecules (cholesterol, triglycerides, phospholipids, etc) per particle, ldl-c only estimated & often very misleading.

What are the best ways of reducing significantly high triglyceride levels when statins are not helping?
Lifestyle/meds: Weight loss through diet and exercise can have a very beneficial effect on triglycerides. If diabetic or hypothyroid, control over these helps. Omega3 fatty acids help but can raise LDL (fish oil 2 grams twice daily, 1/4 cup walnuts/day, use of olive oil for dietary oil such as on spinach salad). Fibrates (prescription) are very effective. ...Read more

What happens if my dads (hes 55 btw) reg cholesterol is 187 but his triglyceride level is 247, is that considered high?
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
