Lipoprotein particles carry fat molecules: cholesterol, phospholipids ; triglycerides around the body in the water outside cells, including the blood. These particles vary in types of protein on the outer surface, ↓density ; ↑size (5 groups) according to the number of fat molecules carried. High density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol is the amount of cholesterol ...Read more

Hi my NON-HDL CHOLESTEROL is140 and my ldl is 121. Too abnormal? Thank you

Mildly Elevated: Non-HDL cholesterol is a better predictor of cardiovascular risk than traditional LDL cholesterol measurements. The National Lipid Association (lipids.org),of which I am a founding member, officially published guidelines stating this on September 15th 2014. Lipid levels are one of several cardiac risks factors including high blood pressure,and cigarette smoking that determine cardiac risk ...Read more

HDL 34, total cholestelrol 160, triglyceroides 75, lp(a) is 5, non HDL cholesterol 131 and LDL 115. How are these numbers?

HDL 34, total cholestelrol 160, triglyceroides 75, lp(a) is 5, non HDL cholesterol 131 and LDL 115. How are these numbers?

Not great: Hi. You have good triglycerides and Lp(a). But you have an isolated low HDL (i.e., not associated with hi triglycerides) and a higher than goal LDL. Your non-HDL is actually 126 if your tot. cool. and HDL are correct as stated. Your low HDL is not a treatment target. Do you have a family history of premature atherosclerotic disease? Eat healthily and exercise regularly, and DON'T SMOKE! Good luck! ...Read more

Cholesterol 100mg/dl(140-240), HDL cholesterol 37, 5mg/dl(>55), LDL 230ui(135-225), also vit d is 17.Should i worry about cholesterol?Im treating vit d

Worry re:other risks: First, i presume you mean your chol. Is 230 and LDL 100. The only reason to worry about chol. Is to lower risk of heart disease but your chol. Is not very high and even having normal chol. Does not protect against heart disease. The real cause of heart disease is inflammation. See http://www.Sott.Net/article/242516-heart-surgeon-speaks-out-on-what-really-causes-heart-disease and my comment:. ...Read more

What are LDL & HDL cholesterol?

Lipoproteins.: Ldl (low density lipoprotein) and HDL (high density lipoprotein) are types of cholesterol. Ldl is so-called "bad cholesterol" because it increases the risk of heart disease by causing hardening of the arteries/atherosclerosis. Hdl is considered "good cholesterol" since it removes cholesterol from the walls of arteries. ...Read more

Fat in nuts lowers hdl-cholesterol, or the fat in nuts lowers ldl- cholesterol?

Fat in nuts lowers hdl-cholesterol, or the fat in nuts lowers ldl- cholesterol?

Nuts good for HDL: Eating nuts tends to increase HDL (good) cholesterol and decrease LDL (bad) cholesterol. The effect is larger if triglycerides are also elevated. See this excellent review paper for more information: http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pmc/articles/pmc3257681 also remember that weight loss and exercise improve cardiovascular risk substantially. ...Read more

Can you tell me how I could lower my (ldl) cholesterol and raise my (hdl) cholesterol?

Can you tell me how I could lower my (ldl) cholesterol and raise my (hdl) cholesterol?

Fitness is the key: Medication and perhaps even diet may have an impact, but if it is at all possible, get back into that aerobic fitness lifestyle that you enjoyed so much as a teenager. It will probably not just raise your HDL but protect your heart and brain, and make you feel far better. What a fine gift to give yourself! ...Read more

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

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
