My niece is currently in the hospital and we are not sure what is going on with her. The doctors tried to do a Cholesterol test and when they put her blood in the machine it dissolved. Her blood turns dark and the machine wont give them results. The doctor had to refine her blood in order for the machine to give results. The results said that her triglycerides is 2200, but her cholesterol is normal. Shes only 17 and she lives in Portugal, so i'm afraid some of the doctors there might not know what to do. can you help us?
