Questions Related to Novefos

Please find attached reports. Pleas take a look at thyroid, cholesterol and lymphocytes. Please suggest if everything is alright.
Dr. Ila Jain Khandelwal
Dear PATIENT you for sharing your reports with me. It suggests the following things: 1. Your LDL Cholesterol in blood is high, which suggests hyperlipidemia. For this, you should have a diet rich in green leafy vegetables, fruits. Avoid fried, fatty and processed foods. Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day for at least 5 days in a week. Your TSH level is marginally low, but the T3 and T4 levels are normal. Your lymphocyte count in blood is high, which can be due to some viral infections. The pus cells in your urine are also high, which suggests some element of urinary tract infection.
