Another urine test to confirm what? Why didn't you simply ask these very important questions regarding your test results with your doctor? I'm sure you have the perfect opportunity to do so....These questions are the questions you should have asked your doctor right when you had the chance.No one here can explain exactly what may be going on with your health...nor diagnose you from your test results.Just call your doctor and ask this same question/s...Good luck. I read/see so many question where people want us to offer our uneducated ideas/guesses as to what their test results mean.I don't understand why you people simply didn't ask your doctor when you had the chance to do so.You got your results from your doctor(had to),so why not just ask what those results mean while your right there with your doctor? I just can't comprehend that.Sorry...I'm not trying to come off as rude.Not at all.I just can not understand why anyone would walk out of their doctors office without asking what their test results mean.

I agree with Jennifer. This is too complicated for YA. You need to talk to a doctor.


What is High Cholesterol

You have this condition if there are high levels of cholesterol in the blood. There are three parts of cholesterol:

  • Low density lipoproteins (LDL)-known as bad cholesterol. It causes build up of cholesterol and other fats in the blood vessels. High LDL levels can cause artery and heart disease.
  • High density lipoproteins (HDL)-known as good cholesterol. It can remove cholesterol and other fats from the blood vessels. High levels of HDL can protect against heart disease.
  • Triglycerides-a common form of fat in the body. Often elevated in people with diabetes or certain genetic conditions.
  • Particles-proteins associated with certain types of cholesterols in the body. These may be a better signal about your risk of developing disease in the blood vessels.
