    My dr. said the blood work showed I might have a kidney problem. Will the cholestral test show things like that?
    I appreciate any help you can give me. My ankles, legs & hands have started to swell up real bad.

    Thanks for your help.

    Don't think cholesterol tests would show kidney problems. He must have done a blood test on your kidneys to find that out. Hope you do well and hope the problem will be able to be treated.

    Good luck!

    I agree with Ilovecats - I don't think cholesterol tests will show anything to do with kidneys.

    I think that urine tests might be needed to detect kidney problems??????
