My LDL is 140 and my total cholesterol is 216. Do I need cholesterol medicine if my tryglycerides are 75 and my HDL is 61?
Cholesterol,LDL: From the Framingham heart and other studies the LDL hypothesis is held to give LDL value as a strong risk factor for atherosclerotic disease,At age 64 something untoward likely will occur within the next 44 years,there is a good statistical probability it will be a vascular event. ...Read more
Absolutely:IfTypical: Keep in mind: each reading, both systolic & diastolic (by all conventional methods) are actually estimations, read from only a single heart beat/pulse, different 1 each value. Of the 2, systolic reading has far stronger correlation with cardiovascular complications over time. Even stronger: the pulse pressure (difference between the 2); is a function of CO, artery stiffness & aortic valve status. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If my dad's (he's 55) reg cholesterol is 187 but his triglyceride level is 247, is that considered high?
Yes, they are high..: Triglyceride (tg) levels over 150 are considered high. Independent of the other cholesterol numbers, high tgs are associated with heart problems. It may also be a marker of diabetes. The good news is that tgs are lowered effectively with a low fat, low choleterol diet, and increased activity. Alcohol can raise tgs, so cut back. I would have your dad checked for diabetes. Good luck. ...Read more

What happens if my dads (hes 55 btw) reg cholesterol is 187 but his triglyceride level is 247, is that considered high?
No crystal ball...: If by "reg cholesterol" you mean "total", then 187mg/dL is pretty good. We used to recommend TC less than 200mg/dL w/goal triglyceride less than 150mg/dL. So 247mg/dL is kinda high but not horribly so (that's greater than 500mg/dL) at which we can then talk to him about medicines to lower TG & risk for pancreatitis etc. Still, it would be a good idea to focus on lifestyle modification & recheck ...Read more

Why?: If you don't have risk factors for or a history of cardiovascular disease, your numbers would be ok. Part of the reason your total cholesterol is high is that your HDL is high, which has a protective effect. Based on the most recent guidelines, you would not really need any treatment for your levels. ...Read more
My HDL is 81 my LDL is 163 my triglycerides are 107.... Am i at a high risk? What is the best way to lower this?
High hdl: I don't think you're at high risk despite the elevated LDL as a high HDL is very protective. Do you have a family history of cardiovascular disease? , however you should follow a low saturated fat diet, avoid smoking, get exercise and you could take a statin to lower the ldl. Your md is the best person to advise you. ...Read more
