Not very good: Your numbers are not very good and put you at increased risk for coronary artery disease.

Because it helps prevent accumulation of lipids in blood vessels, HDL cholesterol is ...Read more
Need Information: Cardiovascular (cvd) risk is related to the number of LDL particles (ldl-p) and HDL particles (hdl-p). When ldl-p is high or hdl-p is low cvd risk is elevated. Ratios report an LDL number divided by hdl. However, cvd risk can vary by 40% a the same ratio value. This is because you can get the same ratio with different LDL or HDL values. It is best to know the ldl-p and hdl-p individually. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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.

Got some routine bloodwork back. My chol/hdl ratio was 2.5 and my ldl/hdl ratio was 1.1 is this something to celebrate or should I be concerned?
Cholesterol Ratio: The total cholesterol to HDL cholesterol ratio is a number that is helpful in predicting an individual's risk of developing atherosclerosis. The number is obtained by dividing the total cholesterol value by the value of the HDL cholesterol.The ideal cholesterol ratio (total chol/hdl) is about 3.5:1. Your ratio is very good. ...Read more
Triglyceride: 225, choles total 220, choles hdl 28.0, choles LDL 134, choles-total/choles hdl ratio 7.9.1. Need to worry? Uroc acid 7.4 .. 50 yrs old
Yes: your lipid panel needs to be modified, hopefully by lifestyle changes, but you might need anti lipids,if treatment pending a concerted 6-12 month trial of diligent low saturated fat diet (less than 7 g sat fat/day) low glucose, 4x/week exercise (even walking briskly 30 min). U need to worry esp if u r of South Asian descent. HDL goal >40 mg/dl at least; LDL ...Read more
