Heart Disease LP(a)

I recently had several panels of blood work done because I had bruising appearing in different areas of my body.  My LP(a) is 300.  I have been tired and nauseated all week.  I am very concerned.  I exercise 4-5 days a week.  I am 5'4, weigh 132

Hi, concentrations >30 mg/d of Lp(a), have been associated with increased risk of coronary heart disease in numerous studies. This value provides additional information on the risk for coronary artery disease. Your symptoms of easy bruising may indicate a bleeding disorder.  The causes for bleeding disorders are hemophilia, von willebrand's disease, immune disorders, leukemia, aplastic anemia and scurvy. The bleeding can also be due to liver disorders, certain medications like blood thinners and non steroidal anti inflammatory agents. Blood counts, peripheral smear and if needed a bone marrow biopsy may help detect the cause for your symptoms. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.  Regards.
