What is the normal range of HDL and LDL in the blood?

By gender and risk

Blood
LDL below 130 is okay for most, <100 is better, people at high risk of cardiac disease are expected to shoot for <70. HDL for men >40 and >50 for women is normal. Higher readings are generally better,

My LDL,HDL are very low below normal range but my triglyceride is very high. What should I do?

This combo a concern

Triglycerides
High triglycerides are a very common cause of low HDL Cholesterol and in many cases low or normal LDL cholesterol. This condition is often seen in patients with obesity, pre-diabetes or diabetes (Insulin Resistance) , and in combination with other cardiovascular risk factors such as hypertension. (Metabolic Syndrome). We treat TG's if >500, but if <500, then target first the LDL, then Non-HDL chol

My total cholesterol,LDL,HDL,triglycerides & glucose are in normal range but lipoprotein LPA is 90.83,range should be less then 30 should i be worried?

Ideas vary

Blood_sugar
Since you're also hypertensive and on a statin, you may want to visit with your physician about treating this. From my reading, the final verdict isn't in. Some folks will treat the elevated lab value with niacin, but whether this is wise while you're getting a statin is a question for someone focused on managing atherosclerosis risk.

My total cholesterol is 149 my hdl is 42 and my ldl is 92 & my ratio is 3.5 is all lipid panel normal,high or low?

Likely normal

Total_cholesterol
If you don't have any other risk factors, this is a good panel. If you are diabetic or already have coronary disease, then your LDL should be <70 to be in the lowest risk group.

Dr. Bryant Cary answered:

Total cholesterol is 232..LDL direct is 150..TC/HDL cholesterol ratio is 5.4...do i need medication or is it normal?

A little high

Hdl_cholesterol
Your cholesterol levels are a little high, particularly an LDL at 150. Whether you need medication depends on things like your lifestyle and medical history, but it probably wouldn't be a bad idea. Maintaining regular physical activity and a diet low in saturated fats can help as well.

Recently got my blood test report. 1. AST(SGOT)-65(Range:10-40 U/L) 2. ALT(SGPT)-71(Range:09-46 U/L) 3. Cholesterol-HDL(37) & LDL/HDL ratio>3.03(avg. risk 2.29-4.90) What could these be indicating?

You have some form of hepatitis (irritation of liver cells) but the cause of this is unclear. Your lipid profile is incomplete but what you provided seems of no major concern. None of this is of substantial value without placing it into a clinical context and the only person who can do that is the doctor who ordered the testing.

I've been having chest pains since early July. Two EKGs, a D-Dimer, an ASA, a Chest X-Ray, and an ESR have been "normal". My cholesterol panel from May showed Trig/HDL ratio of 4.8 (high), overall - 197, HDL - 52, LDL - 95, Tri - 250. Fatty diet, BC Pills

First cholesterol test in 1982 was 203 and last test just done was 213 with hdl and LDL all in normal ranges. Is this good or bad?

Depends

Family_history
Cholesterol norms vary depending on the risk factors one has such as the presence of hypertension, diabetes, smoking, family history of heart attack, etc. Knowing that as well as the actual #s for your cholesterol fractions may help better determine whether those are normal in your case or not.

Very good/keep up,,,

Exercise_program
This is very good as you've apparently kept your cholesterol from increasing dramatically. Everything else is in range so if you keep working on that total and do good diet and exercise, you'll be doing everything you can short of meds to keep it under control. Best of luck.

How normal is it to have higher HDL than LDL?

Abnormal -> Careful

Open-uri20121209-30505-1eiorgo
LDL particles, expressed as a concentration in nmol/L essentially always higher than HDL particle concentrations, expressed ┬Ámol/L. However, what is commonly promoted are estimations of cholesterol fat molecules associated beta-lipoproteins (LDL) or with alpha-lipoproteins (HDL). Theses value are not the correct issue & often misleading but promoted as cheaper way to estimate lipoprotein particles
