Hdl And Ldl Cholesterol Levels
Directional: Total serum cholesterol is made up of several component lipoproteins. Amongst these are fractions: hdl-c is the "good", which you want to be as high as possible and ldl-c is the "bad" which you want to be as low as possible.

Can cholesterol lowering medications be used to elevate HDL levels. The research doesn't seem to support that choice? Total and LDL are w/in range
HDL: Hdl is not often helped with cholesterol drugs. There is some disagreement about this with crestor (rosuvastatin). But, HDL is very much affected by lifestyle. Moderate cardiovascular exercise of at least twenty minutes per day combined with a high protein and low carb diet can significantly elevate the hdl. ...Read more

My triglycerides level is high....but cholesterol is awesome! Hdl is high, ldl low.... What could be going on?
Hypertriglyceridemia: If your serum triglyceride concentration is between 150 and 500 mg/dL, this is considered "mild to moderate" elevation. In the absence of risk factors for coronary heart disease, this may not be significant. You could bring your level down with aerobic exercise, avoiding concentrated sugars, and maybe taking a fish oil supplement (3000 mg per day). Fish oils can have GI and metabolic side effects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
