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

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

By gender and risk: 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, . ...Read more

Hdl (Definition)

HDL, or high density lipoprotein, is a molecule in the body that is responsible for the transport of lipids (fats) from various organs including blood vessels back to the liver for processing and possible elimination. Because it helps prevent accumulation of lipids in blood vessels, HDL cholesterol is ...Read more

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

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

This combo a concern: 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. ...Read more

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?

Fix cause or niacin: Lipoprotein (a), [Lp(a)], is an LDL particle with an extra protein, apolipoprotein (a), attached to it. Increased Lp(a) is most commonly inherited. Other causes include hypothyroidism, chronic kidney disease, and increased trans fat intake. If one of these problems is present it should be treated. High Lp(a) does increase cardiovascular risk. Niacin can lower Lp(a) but has adverse effects. ...Read more

Crp and cholesterol related?

Cholesterol is a fat: which allows animal cell membranes to be flexible & humans to move; has little to do with arterial disease though promoted by NIH.gov for 4 decades for less $. Typical total cholesterol before people 1st obvious heart attack 170 mg/dL. LDL-C is not measured from your blood, only estimated: LDL-C = TC - HDL-C - 1/5th triglycerides. Get NMR lipoprotein test, get LDL particles <400 to max 700 nmol/L ...Read more

First cholesterol test in 1982 was 203. Last test in 2013 was 213 with LDL and HDL all in normal ranges. Is this a good or bad sign?

First cholesterol test in 1982 was 203. Last test in 2013 was 213 with LDL and HDL all in normal ranges. Is this a good or bad sign?

Very good/keep up,,,: 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. ...Read more

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: 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. ...Read more

How is it possible for me to have low cholesterol when both my HDL and LDL are smack dab right in the middle of the normal ranges?

How is it possible for me to have low cholesterol when both my HDL and LDL are smack dab right in the middle of the normal ranges?

It's A Good Thing: Total cholesterol measures the cholesterol contained in all lipoproteins including low density lipoprotein (ldl), intermediate density lipoprotein (idl), high density lipoprotein (hdl), very low density lipoprotein (vldl), and chylomicrons. LDL-C and HDL-C can be in the "normal range" and the total cholesterol from all particles can still be relatively low. Overall, this is a favorable finding. ...Read more

Total cholesterol is 232..Ldl direct is 150..Tc/hdl cholesterol ratio is 5.4...Do i need medication or is it normal?

Total cholesterol is 232..Ldl direct is 150..Tc/hdl cholesterol ratio is 5.4...Do i need medication or is it normal?

Depends on Particles: More than cholesterol, cardiovascular disease (CVD) is related to the number of LDL (LDL-P) and HDL particles (HDL-P). Because cholesterol in LDL and HDL particles is highly variable cholesterol levels often disagree with particle number. When cholesterol and particle number disagree CVD risk tracks with high LDL-P and/or low HDL-P, not LDL-C or HDL-C. Talk to your doctor about next steps. ...Read more
