Hello doctor,

I am a 64 years old male. I am concerned about the values of monocytes, eosinophils, triglycerides, cholesterol, sex hormones bind globulin. With age, the numbers are getting worse. Do you need any additional information or test?

Welcome to

Slightly increased monocytes do not need treatment at the moment; you can repeat the test after one month. Need observation for increased eosinophils count, need anti-allergic medicine if allergy symptoms present. Otherwise, no treatment needed. For increased triglycerides, needed anti triglycerides medicine, and for increased sex hormonal binding, you should get an ultrasound abdomen done, including testes, to look for any cause. Also, get AFP (Alpha-fetoprotein), Beta hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin), and LDH (lactic acid dehydrogenase) for increased sex hormone value.

Thank you doctor,

As per your suggestion, LDH, HCG and AFP results are attached.

Welcome back to

LDH, HCG, AFP are normal. I also advised an ultrasound abdomen, including testes. Have you done that? If ultrasound is also normal, then nothing to worry. Just continue the medications for increased triglycerides.
