Thyroid and Tryglceride Problems

02/05/2007

Question:

My husband was just diagnosed with a slow acting thyroid and also his tryglceride level is elevated to 258. I am so concerned because he lost his right lung to a malpractice case and he smokes 2 or more packs a day. He is very depressed and I am afraid he will die. Also his fasting blood sugar was 169. He is only 48 and he is very inactive due to COPD and now this.

Answer:

I don't really see a question, although agreeing with what you just mentioned, he needs to be evaluated by his physicians in order to address each of these issues.
