My lipid profile cholesterol total 187, LDL 122, HDL 36, ratio cholesterol total/ cholesterol HDL 5.19. Trigliserida 83.Should I take atorvastatin?.

Need more info/data: Before advising, we need more information to determine your risk for a heart attack. Other factors to consider are your age, gender, blood pressure, family health history, whether you've smoked, and your complete history and physical examination. For starters, you should consult your physician about a program to initiate total life style changes. You may need drug therapy too. See your doctor. ...Read more

Total cholestrol-154, triglycerides-137, hdl-35, ldl-92, vldl-27, bp110/90 bp is it normal?

Total cholestrol-154,  triglycerides-137, hdl-35, ldl-92, vldl-27, bp110/90 bp
is it normal?

Normal or Healthy?: In us, typical total chol. Prior to first obvious heart attack: 170 mg/dl. However, cholesterol is made by every animal (including human) cell, part of cell membranes ; not correct issue; promoted as a ways to guess at LDL particle numbers yet poor correlation, esp. On individual basis. Nmr lipoprotein assay is highly accurate; lipid assays not. Trigs a bit high ; promoted by carb/sugar foods. ...Read more

My lipid profile . Serum cholesterol 195.And HDL cholesterol is 43.And LDL cholesterol is 105.And vldl cholesterol is 48. Triglyceride 240?

Normal : These are normal values. Lower, of course, is always better. If you have known heart disease, these values are not low enough for secondary prevention, but if you don't have heart disease, your values are reasonable for primary prevention. Again, lower is always better. ...Read more

How does saturated fat raise HDL cholesterol levels and polyunsaturated fat raise ldl?

Other way 'round!: If you want to lower your "bad" ldl, less saturated and more polyunsaturated fat is important. To raise your "good" hdl, lose weight, exercise and drink modestly (eg, one glass of red wine daily). If you are a smoker, stop. ...Read more

What are LDL & HDL cholesterol?

Lipoproteins.: Ldl (low density lipoprotein) and HDL (high density lipoprotein) are types of cholesterol. Ldl is so-called "bad cholesterol" because it increases the risk of heart disease by causing hardening of the arteries/atherosclerosis. Hdl is considered "good cholesterol" since it removes cholesterol from the walls of arteries. ...Read more

Cholesterol 228 HDL cholesterol 52 LDL cholesterol 161 trigylcerides 103 total cholestrol/HDL cholesterol ratio 4.4 Should I be worried. Help me.

Depends: All lab values need to be interpreted in context - target cholesterol varies on a patient to patient basis. The values above would generally be thought of as normal although a goal LDL should be less than 160. If you have medical comorbidities such as diabetes mellitus than your cholesterol should be lower. ...Read more

My fasting sugar is 142mg/dl, s.Cholestrol 211, s.Triglycerides 267, HDL cholestrole 36, LDL cholestrol 146. Explain?

My fasting sugar is 142mg/dl, s.Cholestrol 211, s.Triglycerides 267, HDL cholestrole 36, LDL cholestrol 146. Explain?

Lipoprotein Problem: High triglycerides (tg) and low hdl-c are markers for high LDL particle number (ldl-p). As tg goes up, ldl-p rises. However, when tg is high the amount of cholesterol carried by LDL particles (ldl-c) goes down. Thus, your true LDL level (ldl-p) is commonly higher than ldl-c. This is common in patients with high sugar. An ideal ldl-p is < 1000. ...Read more

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 cholesterol 223, LDL 133, HDL 63, trigl. 100, is this high?

Total cholesterol 223, LDL 133, HDL 63, trigl. 100, is this high?

Slightly: We like for total cholesterol be be less than 200 so that is somewhat high. However, your good cholesterol the HDL is high and this is good, over 60 is excellent. The LDL should be less than 130 unless you are diabetic or have heart disease in which case it should be less than 100. Triglycerides are normal. If you have diabetes or heart disease you probably need medicine, otherwise diet/exercise. ...Read more

Total cholesterol 159--triglycerides--49-- hdl 59-- Ldl--90-- is that normal for triglyceride..thanks?

Low triglycerides.: That result is low (normal being below 150), but that's also quite good. It's more heart-protective that the triglycerides and LDL are low and the HDL is quite high, relatively. It's a good cholesterol profile. ...Read more

Talk to your doc!: Your cholesterol & triglycerides are too high. Proper nutrition could help fix this. Your HDL is too low. Physical activity would raise this. Your TSH is too high so you may want to consider levothyroxine. Your total & free t are more difficult to interpret b/c you gave results w/o reference ranges. As i've noted before, there are many ways to check/measure testosterone so reference range is key. ...Read more

My fasing sugar is 142mg,/dl, s.cholestrol 211, s.triglycerides 267, HDL cholestrole 36, LDL cholestrol 146? Are these levels normal?

My fasing sugar is 142mg,/dl, s.cholestrol 211, s.triglycerides 267, HDL cholestrole 36, LDL cholestrol 146? Are these levels normal?

Metabolic Syndrome.: These numbers are not normal. In fact, they seem very consistent with something called metabolic syndrome - high blood sugar, high cholesterol, high LDL, high triglycerides, low HDL. It's linked to high insulin levels in the blood and, as you can imagine, is very atherogenic. If you're overweight, losing weight will certainly help this. ...Read more

Total cholesterol 229 HDL 64 LDL 146 trig 97 need to take statins?

Lipid: I see you are on antihypertensives. If you have any other risk factors for cad, i would recommend a statin in low dose. If you have no other risk factors for cad, i don't think there's good evidence for whether or not you should take a statin but again a low dose of statin wouldn't be a bad idea. ...Read more

Dec carbs, exercise: Not knowing your family or medical history, the short answer is you need to exercise more and change your diet. You need a low carbohydrate diet. Stay away from foods with a high glycemic index. Avoid saturated fats. Then recheck your lipid profile and see your internist. ...Read more

Low HDL/High Triglyc: You have slightly high triglycerides if it is a true fasting specimen;if not you need to repeat it with a fasting specimen secondly you have low hdl, these blood results have to be interpreted along with history of other risk factors like smoking, obesity, family history of early cardiovascular diseas, hypertension;diabetese you need to be on low sugar diet and need to exercise, and oily fish;omega 3. ...Read more
