What does high ferritin serum 472 ng/ml f and alt(sgpt) 80 h 0-40 iu/l cholesterol 200 triglycerides92 HDL chole 40 vldl choleste 18 LDL chole142?
This is serious: You have hemochromatosis until proved otherwise, and this is probably why your alt is disturbingly high. Just how much of a workup you want is between you and your physician; a gene study, imaging, and/or a biopsy may be in your future. This is by far the easiest of the common very-serious diseases to manage. Best wishes. ...Read more
Total cholesterol 159--triglycerides--49-- hdl 59-- Ldl--90-- is that normal for triglyceride..thanks?
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
My lipid profile :total cholestrol(6.9), LDL cholestrol (4.5) ,hdl cholestrol (1.3) , triglycerides(2.3). What do these results mean?
High: In the USA we use mg/dl. Your TC is 266, LDL 174, HDL 50, and TG 203. Your numbers are high. If your calculated 10 year risk of heart disease based on smoking, BP, Diabetes is >7.5%, you need a statin. To calculate your risk, plug in the above numbers into: http://my.americanheart.org/professional/StatementsGuidelines/Prevention-Guidelines_UCM_457698_SubHomePage.jsp Click web version. ...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

Confused by lipids - 132 total chol (good), 32 HDL (low), 101 Trig (good), 80 LDL (good), 100 Non-HDL, but Pattern B with bad peak/particle sizes. 69 apolipo B and 28 LP(a) both good. Risk overall?
Usually It Is: Low total cholesterol levels can be found in a variety of settings. For individuals who are not on lipid medications and are otherwise healthy this can occur due to genetically low LDL levels associated with low production of LDL particles (hypobetalipoproteinemia) or increased clearance of LDL particles. See your physician for further discussion and evaluation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Lab:ldl:159, cholesterol:267, triglycerides:347, hdl:39, chol/hdl:6.8, tsh:9.79, free t4:0.80, testosterone:total:78/free:3.1, eosinophil:7.1.Recommendation?
Talk to your doc!: Your cholesterol & triglycerides are too high. Proper nutrition could help fix this. Your HDL is too low. Physical activity would raise this. Your TSH is too high so you may want to consider levothyroxine. Your total & free t are more difficult to interpret b/c you gave results w/o reference ranges. As i've noted before, there are many ways to check/measure testosterone so reference range is key. ...Read more
What causes HDL cholesterol to be low (35) for 57+ yr female while total cholesterol 155, LDL 98, TG 114, HbA1c 4.8, FBS 91 & PPBS 94 ?
Many possibilities: low HDL has multiple causes. Smoking, lack of exercise, genetics, high carbohydrate diet especially when combined with lack of activity. primary approaches to improve HDL include quit smoking, aerobic exercise daily, low glycemic index foods, balanced diet, one handful of nuts and seeds daily, regular consumption of red grapes. ...Read more
Losing weight through exercise and healthier eating and taking meds, but total cholesterol, non-hdl cholesterol, bilirubin, and creatinine levels high?
How high?: Slight elevation in creatinine may be due to increased muscle mass, dehydration, increased protein intake, but should be evaluated by your doctor. Slightly elevated bilirubin may be a "normal" variant or the effect of vigorous excercise. High cholesterol and non-hdl cholesterol may need additional intervention by your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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

Is HDL Cholesterol 35 mg/dL risky for 57+ yr female with total Cholesterol 155, LDL Cholesterol 97.2 & Triglyceride 114 ?
Still harmful.: Granted your LDL and triglycerides are at great levels, but this doesn't take away from the fact that a low HDL level is an independent risk factor for heart disease. This level needs to be brought up by cardiovascular exercise, Niacin, fish oil supplementation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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.

My lipid profile reports are as follows: total cholestrol: 190, hdl:36, ldl:119, vldl cholestrol: 35, What does all of this mean?
Make lifestylechange: At your young age, your HDL should be higher (>45 mg/dl). this is good cholesherol: eat salmon, walnuts, avocado to name a few foods with good fats, and exercise regularly (20 mins even brisk walking 4x/wk) good. Then 6-8 months later, recheck lipids to see if HDL improved. LDL= bad cholesterol, Yours is Ok ( ...Read more
