Is having HDL level 131 and LDL 151 bad?

Is having HDL level 131 and LDL 151 bad?

Good question: Hi. Not many people with lipid profiles like that have been studied, so no absolute answers. However, your HDL would generally be considered protective and your LDL would generally be considered a risk. It's like they're in competition. What are your triglycerides? Your non-HDL cholesterol? They could influence your risk as well as myriad genes that affect CAD risk. ...Read more

Follow the following: Exercise most days of the week (aerobic work), eat fruits and vegetables liberally, limit saturated fats, increase fish and fish oil intake, have fiber with each meal, get six to nine hours of sleep nightly, keep your weight in check, don't sweat the small stuff, don't smoke or drink excessively (one or two drinks weekly). The lower the better on LDL and the higher the better on HDL. ...Read more

Is this cholesterol level good or bad: HDL 1.00 mmol/l LDL 2.6 mmol/l triglyceride 0.8 mmol/l?

Is this cholesterol level good or bad: HDL 1.00 mmol/l LDL 2.6 mmol/l triglyceride 0.8 mmol/l?

Your HDL is a tad low (high is better); your LDL and tg are normal and in the desirable range. Exercise and olive oil can raise your hdl. If you smoke, quitting will also raise your hdl. Primarily, HDL reflects your genetic inheritance. ...Read more

I know LDL cholesterol is known as the "bad" artery clogging cholesterol, but are there healthy levels that are good for you?

I know LDL cholesterol is known as the "bad" artery clogging cholesterol, but are there healthy levels that are good for you?

Depends on Particles: Ldl can be estimated by cholesterol (ldl-c) or measured by particle number (apob or NMR ldl-p). However, ldl-c and ldl-p do not equally predict cardiovascular risk. When ldl-c and ldl-p values disagree (due to cholesterol variability per particle) cvd risk tracks with LDL particle number, not ldl-c values. Ideal ldl-p values are <1000 nmol/l for high risk patients and <1300 nmol for everyone else. ...Read more

Hi am a powerlifter and am on testosterone eathanate at 300mg week low dose "am just asking will Dianabol at 10mg day raise my LDL levels up bad?

Probably not: I can't approve the use of medicines for athletic enhancement, but the real question is whether you are willing to take the increased risk of a heart attack or stroke for the competitive advantage. I can't quantitate the risk for you, but I'd like to share with you that this medication poses a greater danger of your doing something impulsively that you'll regret. Trust you don't smoke. Good luck. ...Read more

Is LDL level 88 HDL 42, trig 115, & tc 153 bad for obese 54 y male with hbp, &controlled diabetes A1c 5.1. Any guidelines to follow or statin needed?

Is LDL level 88 HDL 42, trig 115, & tc 153 bad for obese 54 y  male with hbp, &controlled diabetes A1c 5.1. Any guidelines to follow or statin needed?

No: Your lipid profile numbers are excellent.

Obesity is a threat to your health; probably led to hbp and diabetes. Better health in your case means loosing weight. A plant-based diet would do the trick. This is also good to prevent cancer. Watch " forks over knives", a video on the science of a plant-based diet. Also shows some obese patients whose hbp and dm disappeared on that diet. ...Read more

LDL level 2 years ago was 104 normal. However I gained close to 15 lbs since then and need another test part of physical. Could this still be normal?

Likely: Weight gain may have raised LDL but it is still likely to be in the normal range. At your age, testing once in 5 years is sufficient. 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 or alcohol in any form.
