my husband had high blood pressure, high cholesterol, for many

This answer was rated:

my husband had high blood pressure, high cholesterol, for many years, 4 years ago had stents put in clogged atereies. Is on high blood pressure medicine, but that is all. just went to the doctor and has not been feeling well, extreme exhaustion, upset stomach, lots of flem in A.M., but his blood pressure is quite low for him, and his cholesterol is low for him, his sodium levels are very low also. But he does not feel well at all, is very red most of the time(but his B.P. is low?) and the whites of his eyes are kinda yellow??

Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

The whites of his eyes being yellow suggest that he is having liver problems. This could also be why his cholesterol is low.

Dr. Rick :

I would suggest going to an internal medicine specialist for another opinion and, hopefully, she will run some blood tests including a liver panel.

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?

Thank you Doctor Rick,

I was worried about the liver also as I have heard that yellow eye whites indicate liver damage.

Thanks again,

My pleasure. That is why I think it is important to have his liver checked out.

Have a good Fourth of July.

Don't forget to mash the excellent feedback button for me :)
