Sudden change in cholesterol level
Posted by: Sameer
Date: March 14, 2001 6:57 PM

My cholesterol is below 100, my LDL/HDL ratio is also very good all of a sudden. Since the last two months my eyes go red and I become breathless and my heartbeats are very rapid whenever I have alcohol. I am constipated and feel gassy throughout the day, I also urinate very frequently, my skin feels very itchy. my doctor cannot understand as all my cardiac, liver and kidney panel test are fine. I went on your site and I have learned that all my symptoms are similar to the side effects of a person having nicotinic acid, even my lipid profile would suggest that. My total cholesterol is 90. I am not taking nicotinic acid. Can my system be producing too much of it, is it harmful, can it be stopped?

A cholesterol level below 100 is not healthy. Cholesterol is the basic molecule out of which your adrenal and sex steroids are made. You may have a serious hormone insufficiency. Sounds like you also have a serious digestive problem and are generally in a toxic condition. Human beings do not produce nicotinic acid, so this is not the explanation for anything. It sounds like something has happened with your digestive system which affects absorption of food.
