Is 212 Total Cholesterol Bad
Not necessarily: It depends on how your total cholesterol is made up. The HDL portion is considered more protective, and the LDL portion is considered more atherogenic (more likely to cause cholesterol buildup in the arteries). If your total has a high HDL and a low ldl, the overall general pattern is considered more healthful than a high LDL and low HDL pattern. Read more
Total cholesterol=concentration of all cholesterol/volume blood plasma & carried within the lipoprotein particles; complex protein particles which carry all fat molecules in the water outside cells. The lipoprotein particles have long been classified by ↓ing size/↑ing density: ULDL, VLDL, IDL, LDL, HDL. These protein particles carry triglyceride, phospholipid, cholesterol & ...Read more
Total cholesterol is 211. Good cholesterol 85. Bad cholesterol 111. What can I do to get my bad cholesterol down?
Might do you harm!: With a HDL of 85 I see no benefit to lowering your ldl. Low cholesterol can be as hazardous as high cholesterol. The role of cholesterol in heart disease is overestimated. See http://www. Sott. Net/article/242516-heart-surgeon-speaks-out-on-what-really-causes-heart-disease & http://www. Cbn.

Cardiac Risk?: Overall, your numbers are higher than desired. Your total and bad LDL are high. There are risk calculators that can "predict" your risk for heart disease in 10 years. Use the following link and plug in your numbers to get your risk (need BP and hdl). Start exercising and eating healthy, and make regular dr. Appointments. Best wishes. Http://cvdrisk. Nhlbi. Nih.

Had a physical and it came back with these high number 217 total Cholesterol, 5.7 Cholestrol/HDL ratio and 288 Triglyerides is this bad?
Could be better: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, it would better if both cholesterol and triglycerides were lower. If you are overweight, try to lose weight, not easy. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Read more

My bad cholesterol is 171. my total cholesterol is 235. my triglycerides are ok. I am 45 yrs old. How can I get this down without taking meds? .
Big picture: Despite all the talk, cholesterol levels are mostly genetic and if your physician and maybe a second opinion agree a statin or something is in order, take advantage of living in the 21st century. If you feel you need a "natural" remedy, there's a red rice yeast that contains lovastatin. I trust you're eating sensibly and exercising and I'm glad to see you're managing your hyupertension.

Female total cholesterol: 214 vldl: 31 = triglycerides:156 hdl: 80 ldl: 103 results; good, bad, indiferent, what to do?
Total cholesterol 208. Hdl 36. Triglycerides 118. Ldl 148. I know I have to lower the bad but overall it's there any concern?
Hypercholesterolemia: Your total cholesterol is on the high side, and your HDL (the "good" cholesterol) is a bit low. Your risk of atherosclerosis, heart attack, stroke, and kidney damage will also depend on other risk factors and family history, but you can lower your risk with diet and exercise, and if your levels remain high, ask your doctor if a statin would help.

High cholesterol: Go to http://hp2010.Nhlbihin. Net/atpiii/calculator. Asp to calculate your risk for a heart attack over the next 10 years. <10% is low risk while >20% is high risk. If latter, goal LDL is <100mg/dl. If former, goal LDL is <160mg/dl. Focus on that 1st. Use nutrition & exercise to trim your waist which will lower triglycerides (<150) & raise hdl. Also need to lower (optimize) blood pressure & sugars. Read more

How bad is my cholesterol I'm 31 yrs old weight 196. Total cholesterol 248. HDL 63. LDL 163 Triglycerides 109.. How can I lower it?? Plz help
Pretty high: You have an especially excellent HDL which mitigates the high LDL to a large degree. 130 would be normal. 100 would be excellent. Diet is all that's recommended in your age group, unless you have diabetes. Weight loss is the key. Use a plant based diet (vegetarian like - not strict). You don't have to achieve ideal body weight - the process of losing weight will itself lower the LDL. Read more
I'm 34 f and in 1 yr my total cholesterol rose from 176 to 195, triglycerides went from 40 to 96. No change in diet numbers were fasting. Is this bad?
Cholesterol: The numbers which you are sharing with us all fall within a normal range. More important is the breakdown of the good HDL cholesterol and bad LDL cholesterol rather than the total. What really defines the significance of a lipid profile are other associated risks for cardiovascular disease such as hypertension, diabetes, cigarette smoking or family history of premature coronary disease.

Hello, Recently I have got Triglycerides upto 213, total cholesterol 204 found in non fasting test results done within my company. I am a lacto-vegeterian and wanted to know what can be the cause for this. I have no bad habits like drinking, smoking?
Fasting or not?: It is surprising to me that several physicians have jumped on the "nonfasting" part of this question and indicated that nothing could be concluded without a fasting test. A number of studies have indicated that nonfasting lipid results are quite valid for screening and predicting atherosclerotic risk. Http://www. Medpagetoday.
