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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Total cholesterol is 232..Ldl direct is 150..Tc/hdl cholesterol ratio is 5.4...Do i need medication or is it normal?

Depends on Particles: More than cholesterol, cardiovascular disease (CVD) is related to the number of LDL (LDL-P) and HDL particles (HDL-P). Because cholesterol in LDL and HDL particles is highly variable cholesterol levels often disagree with particle number. When cholesterol and particle number disagree CVD risk tracks with high LDL-P and/or low HDL-P, not LDL-C or HDL-C. Talk to your doctor about next steps. ...Read more

My cholesterol/hdl ratio is 3.14 mmol/l. Is that normal?

CholesterolIncorrect: Cholesterol is a fat made by every animal cell on planet, part of every cell membrane, allows animals to move &has nothing to do with cardiovascular disease. The correct issues are low density lipoproteins &high density lipoproteins, complex proteins which transport all fat molecules around our body in the water outside cells, get an NMR lipoprotein test, then focus on correct issues. Good luck. ...Read more

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 more

Numbers are numbers: Lab results usually are numbers, and numbers are just numbers, with little meaning unless a doctor takes in the whole picture of what's going on. The ordering doctor may or may not consider the results a problem, depending on the patient's illnesses, bodily condition, life habits, and exercise activities. It's better to have HDL at 50 or higher. TG in the 130's is ok, but 120's might be better. ...Read more

Total cholesterol: HDL ratio 5.6 ratio, HDL level 1.4, LDL 5.3, triglycerides 2.6, serum cholesterol 7.9. My father had high cholesterol. Serious?

Total cholesterol: HDL ratio 5.6 ratio, HDL level 1.4, LDL 5.3, triglycerides 2.6, serum cholesterol 7.9. My father had high cholesterol. Serious?

Very high: In the USA we use mg per deciliter so for our US readers, I'm going to convert yours: TC: 305, LDL: 204, HDL: 54, TG: 230. Your numbers are all very high. This is likely inherited and will not be normalized thru diet alone. I would have no issue advising a statin for you, but you should discuss it with your personal physician.
