Doctor insights on:
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
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?
Bilirubin direct and indirect fluctuate (indirect 1.2, direct 0.1, total 1.3...Another test: indirect 0.43, direct 0.54, total 0.97), lfts normal.
Might be Gilbert's: A relatively large portion of the population has something called gilbert's, which is completely harmless, and causes elevated indirect bilirubin in times of stress or illness. If you are completely healthy and just have an elevated indirect bilirubin from time to time, it is almost certainly gilbert's. Ask your doctor what he/she thinks. ...Read more

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.

That is complex: Statins are cholesterol lowering medicines which are effective in reducing ldl( bad cholesterol). In some patients, these drugs can cause liver toxicity which shows up as elevation of alt/sgpt. In such situation there are two choices, reduce dose of statin or by switching to a different statin may be worth a trial. Cholesterol can be lowered by exercise/weight reduction, diet control(no fats in. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Slightly: We like for total cholesterol be be less than 200 so that is somewhat high. However, your good cholesterol the HDL is high and this is good, over 60 is excellent. The LDL should be less than 130 unless you are diabetic or have heart disease in which case it should be less than 100. Triglycerides are normal. If you have diabetes or heart disease you probably need medicine, otherwise diet/exercise. ...Read more

Yes and No: Vldl (very low density cholesterol) is made in the liver, and contains both triglycerides (tg's) and cholesterol ( more tg's than cholesterol). Ldl is made in the blood stream from vldl, and contains more cholesterol, less tg's . Both have a protein called apob on the surface, but because LDL lasts longer , there is more LDL available. Both can cause plaque in arteries if levels are too high. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is this dysfunctional HDL cholesterol? total cholesterol 241 LDL 128 VLDL 9 triglycerides 43 and HDL 104. Doctor won't give me more testing.
Looks pretty good: The most notable things about this cholesterol (lipid/blood fat) picture is the good elevation of HDL and low VLDL/triglycerides. You can see that 104 of your total cholesterol (241) is the good stuff. Your LDL is a little high but particle analysis won't change the recommendation. I agree with your doctor. Work to maintain this very good profile. ...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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Chol 275, tri 66, HDL 65, LDL 187, vldl 13, non HDL chol 210 high chol, but all ratio meet aha guidelines. Anything to worry about?
Lipid panel done. triglycerides 263, HDL 45, LDL 66, cholesterol 163. what would cause the high triglycerides with normal values otherwise?
It's possible to have isolated, high triglycerides. If that value was from a non-fasting test, and if you had a fatty meal before the test was done, you could see an isolated high trig level. But triglycerides at that level suggest that there may be an abnormality with lipid metabolism. Please be sure to follow up with your doctor about the results. Hope this helps. ...Read more
