I'm good health-wise, but lab tests show higher than normal levels

Posted by @sameer_mobin, Mar 6, 2016

Hi All,

I have joined the forum today. I have a query.

I am a 26 year old. I am all good health-wise. I do running and exercise every alternate day. I have been pretty regular in running/exercise since last 2 months. I am not overweight.

I recently gave blood tests and found out the following:-

Cholestrol (5.69 mmol/L)
Triglycerides (2.04 mmol/L)
Cholestrol/HDL-C (5.17 mmol/L)
LDL-C/HDL-C (3.64 mmol/L)

Uric Acid (470 umol/L)

I am a bit worried as the above readings were highlighted in the report as above the normal level. I believe the benchmark is laboratory ranges.

I am young and energetic. I am really surprised over slightly increased uric acid and cholesterol levels. Can someone tell me if it’s something to be really concerned about?

Welcome to Connect, @sameer_mobin.
What was the reason that you had the blood tests done? Here’s some info about uric acid levels and cholesterol.

Have you seen your doctor since getting the test results?
