How to lower bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol?

yah im 17 yrs old, and i had my blood test and the reports were not good. my bad cholesterol was pretty high and my good cholesterol was pretty low. any suggestions on what to do?

Answer: 
First, there's no such thing as "bad" cholesterol. This is a term used by the pharmaceutical companies to sell their products. Cholesterol is tested for by taking a blood sample from a vein in the arm. Yet, in the entire history of medicine, there's never been a case where the veins have ever been blocked by cholesterol. Venous blood flows slower than arterial blood and would thus be more inclined to become blocked if the assumption of "bad" cholesterol were accurate. Cholesterol is actually a life saving substance and develops in the arteries only when it's needed. When you don't drink enough water you get dehydrated. Dehydration turns the blood acidic. As this acidic blood rushes through the arteries under extreme pressure, it damages the linings with tiny cuts and abrasions that could peel off and cause embolisms (clots) in other areas of the body. To prevent this, the so-called "bad" cholesterol is produced to cover and protect the damage like a waterproof bandage until it can heal. But the medical profession doesn't understand the role of water in the body and so the dehydration goes untreated. This allows the damage to continue, triggering the production of more and more cholesterol. You need to avoid soft drinks and other beverages that have a diuretic effect in the body - these are the cause of your problems. Instead, you should increase your water and salt intake, These are what the body was designed to use. Click the link below for a guide on using water and salt properly to correct your dehydration.

How to deminish fluid in the lungs due to congestive heart failure in dogs?

she is already on a diuretic, but continues to worsen

Answer: 
In some cases, such as congestive heart failure that is caused by heartworm disease, treatment of the underlying condition may resolve some or all of the heart problems. If the problem is caused by a congenital condition (a heart defect that the dog has had since birth), surgical repair may be an option. In most cases, however, the problem cannot be cured, but treatment can help improve the dog’s quality and length of life. Dogs with severe congestive heart failure may require initial hospitalization and oxygen therapy. If there is fluid in the abdomen, it may need to be removed to make your pet more comfortable. There are many medications that your veterinarian may recommend to help reduce fluid buildup, improve heart function, and/or normalize heart rhythms. Your veterinarian will discuss each medication and its potential side effects with you. A low-sodium diet may also be recommended to help minimize fluid accumulation. Most dogs with congestive heart failure require medications for the remainder of their lives. Periodic blood tests, radiographs, and echocardiograms are often needed to monitor treatment success and disease progression
