Advanced Cvd Profile
Had triage sob, hepatic panel, complete blood count, hepatic profile, basic metabolic profile, liver 1, lipid profile, hemo a1c, serum-serum all done?
Maybe: It seems as though you've had quite a few tests ordered. Whether or not you're done will likely depend on the reason why they were ordered along with the test results that you'll discuss with your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more
How would i know if i might benefit from a heart scan and/or advanced lipid profile. I have a family history of cvd but all my lab work is very good.?
Talk: To your doctor. If really worried, find hospital that does screening scans. ...Read more
Biometric screening. I'm 31. Triglycerides =290,HDL=53,LDL=112,Total Cholesterol=223, Cholestrol/HDL Ratio=4.2,Glucose=99,BP 111/74. Tri high. Why?
May never find "why": I'm going to assume that this is fasting sample. A lot of this is hereditary. There's not a consensus about what to do with high triglycerides when other lipids seem okay. One idea is to spend a few months exercising like you did as a teenager and then checking. I bet you'll see things change for the better. Best wishes. ...Read more
Lipid profile, cholestrol 211, VLDL 17,LDL 142,HDL 62,trigylcerides 84, age 31, is drug therapy required? Or just diet
Diet and exercise: Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco in any form and do not take any alcohol. ...Read more
Is an nmr lipid panel a valuable tool to better assess heart disease risk compared to a basic lipid panel?
Yes - Based on Data: LDL cholesterol (LDL-C) is the traditional measure of LDL quantity. NMR measures LDL particle number (LDL-P). When LDL-C and LDL-P differ CHD risk tracks with LDL-P not LDL-C. Expert groups advocate use of LDL-P to judge response to therapy and guide adjustment of therapy. New data shows adjusting therapy to achieve low LDL-P results in fewer CVD events versus statin treatment to low LDL-C levels. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Lipid panel: ttl cholesterol- 159, hdl- 45, ldl- 102, triglycerides- 61, cholesterol/hdlc ratio- 3.5, non hdl- 114. Is this good with heart disease?
Depends on the natur: If it is coronary artery disease, then this lipid profile needs to be improved further. The goal is to get LDL down to <70mg/dl. This can be achieved with daily exercise for 30-45 minutes, avoid any saturated fats in diet or cooking and increase the dose of statin being used. Your cardiologist should help to titerate the statin dose further. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Depends on risks: Groups have different recommendations,which change. For >40yr w known atherosclerotic disease,kidney disease,diabetes,or >20% 10 year risk for MI (search "Framingham risk score calculator"), generally get statins.Low risk coronary artery calcium score can allow recalculation of risk score. Your doctor knows you better than we do; doing the risk score calculator & discussing at next appt worthwhile ...Read more
Cholesterol 174, triglycerides 68, HDL ch 45.00, LDL direct 80.00, vldl 14, HDL risk factor 3.9, CRP 0.53, homocysteine 8.6 with no diabetes. Good?
I'm 27 but my lipid profile is total cholesterol 199.0 mg/dl , LDL cholesterol 146.3 mg/dl , HDL cholesterol 33 mg/dl. Is this profile normal?
Dyslipidemia: Your total and LDL are at higher limits and as u grow older they will get worse in addition u have a condition of lower HDL which incresed your risk of cardiovascular disease the present medicines available fail to change this risk though can change lipid levels you also have a high chance of becoming a diabetic all is not lost good lifestyle like a mediterranean diet and exercise will help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cholesterol numbers: LDL: 120. HDL 85. Triglycerides: 89. PCP is recommending Statins. Is there really a risk of CHD here?
Depends: The risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) really varies with your other health conditions. For example if you also have diabetes and hypertension, a statin would be recommended. Similarly if there is a strong family history of CAD then the threshold for treatment would be lower. You can use the following calculator to determine your risk: http://cvdrisk.nhlbi.nih.gov/ ...Read more
ANS system: I think you are referring to spinal cord stimulation. Basically its the placement of fine wires with metal contacts into the spine. This is connected to a generator that provides a fine current. The idea is to produce a tingling feeling in an area of pain in order to reduce or control the pain severity. There are 3 companies and the devices work differently. ...Read more
LDL 104...HDL 62.... TOTAL 174.. Triglip..42...My HDL/ risk factor said 2.8 . Does this # mean I'm at risk for heart Attack?
40 yo male pos family history of CAD smoker tot chol 268,LDL 194 particle size A(Large), HDL 50, TG 119.Had CK 1400 on crestor (rosuvastatin). Can I try diff statin?
Yes, Ask Your Doctor: Elevated LDL is an important modifiiable risk factor for decreasing risk of cardiovascular disease. High LDL can be present due to inherited and acquired medical conditions. Work with your doctor to identify and manage all factors contributing to your high LDL level. In addition to maintaining diet and execise, different statins or other lipid altering therapy can be considered. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My lipid profile shows s.Cholesterol=239, hdl=28, s.Triglycerides=345, ldl=162 and vldl=47. What does this mean?
Particle Problems: This lipid panel is common and often hides a greater problem. As tg rises the number of LDL particles rises. However, when tg is high the amount of cholesterol carried by LDL particles goes down. This often results in a much higher LDL particle number (ldl-p) than measured ldl-c levels. When ldl-p is high cardiovascular risk is high independent of ldl-c, hdl-c, or tg values. Ldl-p <1000 is ideal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hdl cholesterol: 28l cholesterol/hdl ratio: 5.8h LDL chol, calculate:99 triglycerides: 173 h can someone interpret this for me?
Low HDL/High Triglyc: You have slightly high triglycerides if it is a true fasting specimen;if not you need to repeat it with a fasting specimen secondly you have low hdl, these blood results have to be interpreted along with history of other risk factors like smoking, obesity, family history of early cardiovascular diseas, hypertension;diabetese you need to be on low sugar diet and need to exercise, and oily fish;omega 3. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
