I am 60 yrs of age, I have had no health problem, I exercise daily but by vices are: I smoke 10 cigarettes a day and in the evening I consume about 180ml of alcohol. When the alcohol exceeds 180ml, during my sleep sometimes I get out of breath and I get chocked. Did my lipid profile and liver function test yesterday and the test result showed LDLC/HDLC ratio as 2.36, SGOT 62, SGPT 69, all the other tests shows normal. Kindly advice please.
Can I ask what your cholesterol numbers were by type? Also, your liver enzymes are a little elevated, but nowhere near the levels where most doctors get concerned, that starts when they exceed 150. The increase is most likely due to your alcohol consumption and may get worse over time so you should really consider some changes.
Lets us know your numbers and we can be of more help.
