What are chances of a mi with (cholesterol 175) -- (trigliprides 36)-- (-hdl 59)-- (a1c 6.3%). Ldl/hdl ratio 1.84 just curious?

What are chances of a mi with (cholesterol 175) -- (trigliprides 36)-- (-hdl 59)-- (a1c 6.3%). Ldl/hdl ratio 1.84 just curious?

Perfect cholesterol: These are perfect....Waning low risk numbers for a cholesterol panel. It would appear that you have little to no risk from cholesterol plaques.

Hdl (Definition)

HDL, or high density lipoprotein, is a molecule in the body that is responsible for the transport of lipids (fats) from various organs including blood vessels back to the liver for processing and possible elimination. Because it helps prevent accumulation of lipids in blood vessels, HDL cholesterol is ...Read more

My Dr. Feels at 241 I don't need to lower my cholesterol cause my ratios are all good my LDL is near optimal at 128 and my HDL is 104 anyone agree?

My Dr. Feels at 241 I don't need to lower my cholesterol cause my ratios are all good my LDL is near optimal at 128 and my HDL is 104 anyone agree?

He may be right,,,: A very high HDL like you've got is a great protector against heart disease. The LDL isn't high and is in a good range. Many others with this finding around the world have total chol. Over 200 with high HDLs at or approaching 100 and they very rarely if ever have heart disease so unless there are other issues like diabetes or high blood pressure this, by itself is highly unlikely to be a problem.

I've been told my cholesterol is 125, but I have a good ratio of HDL to ldl. Should I get a particle size test to check for LDL and a c reactivpro tes?

I've been told my cholesterol is 125, but I have a good ratio of HDL to ldl. Should I get a particle size test to check for LDL and a c reactivpro tes?

If you want to,,,: You have a very good total cholesterol and you say you have a good hdl/ldl ratio, which means your LDL can't be very high and would almost definitely be within the lowest range, so this is highly unlikely to be a problem for you. You're also older with this, making it even less of a problem. You might, therefore want to save it for later in life unless you just want to know now. Good luck.

36yo cholesterol 247, HDL 64, LDL 163 VLDL 20 chol/ratio 3.9 triglycerides 99. Is this really bad? This is fasting!!

36yo cholesterol 247, HDL 64, LDL 163 VLDL 20 chol/ratio 3.9 triglycerides 99. Is this really bad? This is fasting!!

I'd treat it: Sensible diet and exercise are your best friends always, and this is where to start if you're able to. If your physician thinks it's time to start medication, then I hope you find something that's convenient and effective.

Age 16, T cholesterol 370mgh/dl, HDL 1.16, LDL 7.36, T Chol/ HDL ratio 7.91, sugar level normal. Is this very high?

Age 16, T cholesterol 370mgh/dl, HDL 1.16, LDL 7.36, T Chol/ HDL ratio 7.91, sugar level normal. Is this very high?

Something isn't: Adding up. Perhaps typo...your ID info says age 76, not 16. Total cholesterol is given in mg/dl (370 IS high), but other values in mmol/l. However LDL of 7.36 mmol/l (284 mg/dl) is QUITE high, too. Unfortunately your 1.16 mmol/l (44 mg/dl) HDL isn't very far into the protective range. Ratio is high. Notes say you have had heart stent so cholesterol needs to be much lower;need meds. Review with Doc

Why are doctors concerned when patient has raised cholesterol levels or a high ratio of ldls to hdls?

Why are doctors concerned when patient has raised cholesterol levels or a high ratio of ldls to hdls?

Lipids: Drs. Are concerned about elevated lipids because they are associated frequently with atherosclerotic disease.

How bad is my blood work? Cholesterol 221 h, HDL 47, trig 116, LDL 151 h, chol/hdl ratio 4.7, non HDL chol 174 h never heard of non HDL 174 is scary!

How bad is my blood work? Cholesterol 221 h, HDL 47, trig 116, LDL 151 h, chol/hdl ratio 4.7, non HDL chol 174 h never heard of non HDL 174 is scary!

Too high: You need to lower your LDL and non-hdl cholesterol (just another means of measuring ldl). Try to follow a plant based diet (vegetarian is very healthy) and/or consider drug treatment, especially if you have any other risk factors.

3yr ago Cholesterol was 5.98 mmol/L now Serum 5.39mmol/L, Triglecerides 1.11 HDL 1.41 Cholesterol HDL 3.8 ratio LDL 3.48 mmol/L (.48over) Is it OK?

Cholesterol made by: Every animal cell on planet, part of all animal cell membranes, enables animals to move, has never been correct issue for arterial disease. Correct issue, published 1950 & repeatedly verified, has always been lipoproteins: low LDL & high Large HDL concentrations best. Study: https://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/Low-density_lipoprotein etc., get NMR lipoprofile by Vantera analyzer & study my many answers.

Cholesterol 250, HDL 88, LDL 112, ratio 3.0 No smoker, 22 BMI, 61 inches tall, 116 lbs. 57 yr old female. Should I take statins? No other risk factor

Cholesterol 250, HDL 88, LDL 112, ratio 3.0 No smoker, 22 BMI, 61 inches tall, 116 lbs. 57 yr old female. Should I take statins? No other risk factor

No need: Unless you have diabetes, strong family history, or diabetes. However, listen to primary doctors recommendations, as some details may make statins necessary. Diet and exercise control always helps to reduce risk.

They did a lipid test on me but don't know how to read results cholesterol 150, trig 155, HDL 31, chol/hdl ratio 4.84, LDL 88, non HDL 119. Good or bad?

Average: Your HDL chol is low- the only way to improve is to exercise daily and to keep ideal body weight. Keep the LDL level around 70 if you have strong fh of coronary artery disease. Your triglycerides are borderline high which can be corrected by daily exercise and proper diet. (low in carbohydrate and sweets).

How do you calculate the risks of the LDL and HDL cholesterol ratio?

How do you calculate the risks of the LDL and HDL cholesterol ratio?

Not easily: The LDL and HDL ratio is not routinely advised. A better calculation is perhaps cholesterol minus hdl-c or non-hdl-c. In many instances this number should not exceed 30 beyond your ldl-c goal which is based on your own risk. If your ldl-c goal is 70 then non-hdl goal is 100 or less. The triglyceride/hdl ratio may be predictive of risk as well as diabetes. Some believe it should be less than 3.

Total cholesterol- 133, HDL- 53 LDL- 64 Triglycerides- 75 ratio- 2.5 Non- HDL- 80. IS this too low?

You're fine Matt: Stop worrying about this stuff, buddy. Lab reference ranges just compare you to average people. Plenty of healthies fall outside. You are at your physical and mental prime. Work hard to build yourself up. Maybe you are in a difficult life situation and can get help getting free. You can do it buddy. Best to you.

Ok but not great: Assuming you don't smoke or have high BP, your risk for a stroke or heart attack over the next 10 years is very low, less than 1%. So generally you would not need meds for your cholesterol now. However, if you have a family history of early heart disease (heart attack in Mom age

Cholesterol 228 HDL cholesterol 52 LDL cholesterol 161 trigylcerides 103 total cholestrol/HDL cholesterol ratio 4.4 Should I be worried. Help me.

Depends: All lab values need to be interpreted in context - target cholesterol varies on a patient to patient basis. The values above would generally be thought of as normal although a goal LDL should be less than 160. If you have medical comorbidities such as diabetes mellitus than your cholesterol should be lower.

My total cholesterol is 238 but my other number are good: HDL - 104 Chol/HDL Ratio 2.3 Triglcerides 57 VLDL 11 LDL (Calculated) 122 Should I worry?

I think no: Treat the person, not the numbers. This stuff is mostly genetic. I trust that you're not a smoker and that you stay fit. Best wishes.
