Lipid panel: ttl cholesterol- 159, hdl- 45, ldl- 102, triglycerides- 61, cholesterol/hdlc ratio- 3.5, non hdl- 114. Is this good with heart disease?
Depends on the natur: If it is coronary artery disease, then this lipid profile needs to be improved further. The goal is to get LDL down to <70mg/dl. This can be achieved with daily exercise for 30-45 minutes, avoid any saturated fats in diet or cooking and increase the dose of statin being used. Your cardiologist should help to titerate the statin dose further. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Cholesterol numbers: LDL: 120. HDL 85. Triglycerides: 89. PCP is recommending Statins. Is there really a risk of CHD here?
Depends: The risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) really varies with your other health conditions. For example if you also have diabetes and hypertension, a statin would be recommended. Similarly if there is a strong family history of CAD then the threshold for treatment would be lower.

Man 50 years total cholesterol 220 hdl 31 ldl161 triglycerides 144 is it very bad ? Should we consider total cholesterol or total vs hdl which is 7.1
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.

Total 216 , HDL 26 and triglycerides 745, cholesterol not calculated because of high triglycerides direct LDL 63 is my LDL concerning?
Favorable: Hi. That's a nice profile, with LDL well under 100. HDL is good at 57. Based on the HDL, LDL, and total cholesterol, the calculation predicts a triglyceride of 180, which is a little high. The total cholesterol isn't a useful number other than playing a role in the calculations. Triglyceride can be very responsive to fat and sugar in the diet. ...Read more
36yo cholesterol 247, HDL 64, LDL 163 VLDL 20 chol/ratio 3.9 triglycerides 99. Is this really bad? This is fasting!!
Yes, does having a lipid panel of total cholesterol 227, HDL 76, Triglycerides 79 and LDl 135 constitute having a bad heart? Are these bad results?
That's pretty good.: While your LDL could afford to be a bit lower (< 100 to be really good), your HDL is really high, which is very heart-protective, and your triglycerides are in an acceptable range. Your total is high in part because your HDL is so high, which is a good thing. But again, the LDL could afford to be a bit lower. ...Read more
