normal cholesterol HDL was 48 and LDL was 89 good cmp normal TSH normal my triglycerides was a little high 167 dr was not concerned. Do you agree?

Optimal cholesterol. Optimal risk factors include chol of 170, HDL of 50, systolic Blood Pressure 110. not a diabetic and not a smoker. And no family history of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD). An available app is ASCVS risk calculator which will calculate your 10 yr risk and lifetime risk of cardiovascular event.
For the most part. Assuming BP is controlled, your 10year risk for heart attack/stroke is low. Your doc can do a simple calculation using your cholesterol, blood pressure, age, race and gender to come up with an individualized program based on risk. I would recommend good BP control, achieve and maintain an ideal BMI and regular exercise. The TG's are a little high but should improve with exercise and diet.
Yes. You numbers are good, but if you're overweight, weight loss is always helpful. Avoid inbetween meal snacks and alcohol.
Totally. 167 is so close to normal that it's unimportant - come back if it's >500! Also, of all the lipid measurements, TGs are the most variable. Eat a vegetarian diet for a week, fast 12 hours before the test, and recheck it. you may find it's down to 80!

T3, (liothyronine) t4, total cholesterol, hdl, ldl, triglycerides & glucose all reports are in normal. Only TSH is 6.39 & lipoprotein lpa is 91.83 should I be concerned?

Yes, a little. Your TSH is elevated suggesting thyroid deficiency. Please note that all lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Read more...
Yes. The high TSH suggests you are hypothyroid or heading that way despite "normal" T3 (liothyronine) & T4- low normal is not optimal. Check free T3 (liothyronine) & reverse T3 (liothyronine). Lp(a) is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease; it is easier to neutralize than lower it- see http://tinyurl.com/okcr5ms for a good discussion. Statins don't lower Lp(a).

Recheck. If everything else is normal and you are feeling ok, i would just recheck your electrolytes. Make sure you are adequetly hydrated before the test, though. Sometimes electrolyte imbalance may be due to simple things such as lack of proper hydration, being overheated, etc. If still abnormal, you might need further work up. Read more...
