cardio work in gym. My urine is dark sometimes, my physician says I need to

drink more water, in general especially after heavy cardio exercise. My labwork

was 105 High. total cholesterol was 176, trigerides 119, HDL chol. was 47,

VlDL Chol. Cal was 24. Total chol/Hdl ratio was3.7, Estimated Chd risk 0.6

I take antenol 50 mg. 80 mg Zocor and 1500 mg of Enduricin (slow niacin) daily.

I was concerned about liver and kidney function besides cholesterol reading.

You are under supervision and kept on medication for BP and cholesterol which seems to be effective. As far as your urine report is concern, you have leukocyte esterase 1+ and WBC count of 10-30, it indicates urinary track infection. Rest of your urine exam including specific gravity and pH is normal. So over all result indicates urine infection.
