Hi all, I had a phone call from my GP this morning ( not the bad one ), he said he had been doing some investigating and looking through my notes he noted that during November last year I was suffering from headaches for about 10 days, and in November blood tests had been taken ( before the headaches started).
Now these blood tests showed that my cholesterol level was slightly high, blood tests in February showed slightly high levels of cholesterol to, so breaking this down he found that my bad cholesterol could be affecting my COPD, this would also coincide with severe shortness of breath that I have reported (hence new inhaler).
I now need a blood fast test, but if this is still high for cholesterol levels then it is connected and will need teating in a new way.
This made me look around and I found this interesting, there is a type of cholesterol that can cause inflamation in the lungs and airways :- ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/222...
and this :- ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/222...
Seems to be a good few articles about this but it's the first time any medical proffesional has said anything about it to me
Have others been told this or treated for this ?
