Clinical Investigation

Jason is a 19-year-old college student who goes to the doctor complaining of chronic fatigue. The doctor palpates Jason's radial pulse and discovers that it is fast and weak. An echocardiogram and later coronary arteriograph reveal that he has a ventricular septal defect and mitral stenosis. His electrocardiogram (ECG) indicates that he has sinus tachycardia.When laboratory test results are returned, they indicate that Jason has a very high plasma cholesterol concentration with a high LDL/HDL ratio.

What can be concluded from these findings, and how are they related to Jason's complaint of chronic fatigue?
