What do you suggest if my triglycerides raised to 440mg/dl but after3rd day it is 182mg/dl total cholestrol is 190mg/dl?

Modify your diet: Sounds like your TG's respond to diet. Alcohol and carbohydrates will raise TG's significantly. I would work on reducing your alcohol intake and/or reducing your simple carbohydrates. Sugars and starches such as rice, bread and pasta will raise them. You report a high number, but I really get concerned over 500. You may wa to wet with a dietician at some point. ...Read more

My appetite is gone. Force myself to eat. Stress? Remeron gave me an appetite but raised my triglycerides. Lexapro (escitalopram) makes nausea worse. What will help?

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. "eustress" is good -- it motivates you to excel. "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

I could really use an SSRI foranxiety/depression, but triglycerides are high and I've read many of these raise it more. Any SSRIs that don't raise this?

Having increased: Triglycerides does not necessarily mean that you can't use a SSRI's. It does mean that baseline lipids should be done and then repeated - to see effect of the SSRI. Here is an article which may be helpful- https://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih.

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

Dr. Alvin Lin Dr. Lin
1 doctor agreed:
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. However, we'd like to raise HDL (good) cholesterol but unfortunately, no drug thus far has been able to both raise HDL and prevent heart disease events. Experimental drugs have successfully raised HDL but w/o lowering heart disease. Only exercise appears to do both. ...Read more

If I have the stomach flu, can I eat ritz crackers instead of saltine crackers?

If I have the stomach flu, can I eat ritz crackers instead of saltine crackers?

You can: You can, but Ritz crackers have considerably more fat content than saltines so are a little less gentle on an irritated stomach and bowel.

Rule of thumb: if it makes your nauseous or hurts your stomach, stop eating it and try again when you're feeling a bit better. If it doesn't cause pain or nausea, then you're good. ...Read more

Why do saltines and flat 7-up settle an upset stomach?

They buffer acid: "upset stomach" is not enough information to help you.

I had to eat something at 2am (saltines and ritz to settle a terrible stomach ache) Am I going ti gain a lot now?

Not if: Timing of eating just does not matter. It's total calories in. 4000 calories is one pound of weight. That's equivalent to about a 100 saltines (40 calories per saltine. Takes 100 of them to gain a pound).

Will my baby’s raised birthmark go away?

Will my baby’s raised birthmark go away?

Yes: If it is a typical hemangioma, most of the times yes! The general rule of thumb is that 90% are gone by 9 yrs of age, 70% are resolved by age 7, and 50% are gone by age 5. So, be patient and know that most will spontaneously disappear. If it is in a worrisome location (eg. Eyelid, nasal passage, etc), your doctor may refer you to a specialist for treatment to get rid of it earlier. ...Read more
