A 34-year-old member asked:

If lipid profile and blood pressure are ok on medicine, is any possibility heart attack?

Yes: Although controlling your blood pressure and cholesterol will reduce the chances of complications, it does not assure that you could not get a heart attack. We occasionally see heart attacks in patients who have few or no risk factors.

How does testosterone change glucose and lipid metabolism?

Dr. Seema Patel

Varies: Testosterone can help build muscle which helps decrease Insulin resistance and can help with glucose metabolism. The cholesterol levels vary depending on the testosterone taken. Usually in physiologic levels, it is neutral but when too much is taken, it decreases the HDL and therefore can worsen your profile. All medicine works best within physiologic ranges and with lifestyle.

See Below: For the most part yes. I would like to see your HDL higher 40-50. Exercise, no smoking will help improve this. Adhere to a healthy diet as well.

And the answer is: Total cholesterol under 200 is desirable (good) hdl less than 40 at risk of heart disease total LDL less than 100 good at 106 it is optimal. At your age i would stay/get active and watch the fried foods, junk foods. Get healthy for a lifetime and check again in 4 months and you will be suprised at how fast you can turn the numbers around.
