Get seen: I'm concerned you have a physical lesion obstructing your gut. Even if you don't, you need to find the reason. Sensible people -- even physicians -- don't buy "stress" as an easy answer.

"distress" means you're helpless / feel helpless; if you're in an abusive situation, your physician can perhaps help u escape;are you so strung out you can't eat? ...Read more

Can you tell me how I could raise my total cholesterol without lowering my ldl-cholesterol or triglycerides?

Why?: We typically don't want to raise Total Cholesterol, or for that matter LDL (bad) cholesterol or triglycerides.

Experimental drugs have successfully raised HDL but w/o lowering heart disease. Only exercise appears to do both. ...Read more
