There are two types of cholesterol, namely good cholesterol and bad cholesterol. Good cholesterol, also known as HDL, has one function to prevent plaque clots that can clog blood vessels. Normally, the HDL level in the blood is more than 60 mg / dL, the higher the number, the better. Meanwhile, bad cholesterol or LDL is the opposite, high levels in the blood can trigger the formation of plaque that can clog arteries. We recommend that the LDL level in the blood is not more than 100-129 mg / dL. The number 130-159 can be said to have entered the high threshold, and the number 160-189 is a very high threshold, whereas if it is more than 190 mg / dL it is included in the very high level category and has the potential to cause various diseases such as stroke and heart attack. . There is also another type of checking for fats in the blood called triglycerides and total cholesterol.
From the data you provide, your HDL and LDL levels are normal.
Examination of red blood cells varies, for example to determine Hb, reticulocytes, and the size of red blood cells. Unfortunately the data you provide is unclear. The normal number of red blood cells in men ranges from 700,000 - 5.2 million per microliter, while in adult women 500,000 - 4.6 million per microliter. High red blood cell levels can be caused by dehydration, heart disease, lung disease and dependence on drugs such as steroids. However, it is not related to GERD. The condition of high red blood cell counts can be treated by addressing the causes of the accompanying diseases.
But for more details, you can do a direct consultation with the doctor who examines and advises you to do blood tests. or you can see a hematologist for more details.
so hope it is useful,
