Ldl 132 Good Or Bad
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

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.

Since your own body makes most of your cholesterol, diet will help to about 20 %. ...Read more

Bureaucracy: Not sure if its as much of a bad reputation as it is the legislation and lawyers that create such negative press. Between the fda and rd it is expensive to get a drug to market in todays world in the us.
