My Lipid Profile Indicates That I May Get Stroke If I Drop My Ldl
Confused by lipids - 132 total chol (good), 32 HDL (low), 101 Trig (good), 80 LDL (good), 100 Non-HDL, but Pattern B with bad peak/particle sizes. 69 apolipo B and 28 LP(a) both good. Risk overall?
Should i consider getting lpa tested if lipid panel is normal (total 94, LDL 34, HDL 47) even with strong family history of heart disease and stroke?
Lp(a) lipoprotein: Is a marker for increase cardiovascular risk and can be lowered with agents such niacin. However, no outcome studies have showed efficacy in lowering cardiovascular events by lowering lp(a). Attempt lowering risk you can managed like smoking, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, physical inactivity, diet, alcohol consumption, psychosocial stressors. Good luck. Also i will recommend a stress test. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Perhaps High TG's: Patients with high triglyceride (tg's) levels often have increased levels of vldl with low or normal LDL levels. Tg's in vldl move into LDL and in return LDL sends cholesterol back into vldl. This same process happens with HDL cholesterol, depleting cholesterol from LDL and hdl, and thus lowering LDL and hdl, while vldl cholesterol increases. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What do you suggest if my lipid profile reports are as follows: total cholestrol: 190, hdl:36, ldl:119, vldl cholestrol: 35,?
Need Particle Number: More than cholesterol, cardiovascular risk (CVD) is related to the number of LDL (LDL-P). Because cholesterol in LDL particles is variable LDL cholesterol (LDL-C) and LDL-P often disagree. When these measures disagree CVD risk tracks with LDL-P, not LDL-C. Recent data show adjusting therapy to attain low LDL-P significantly lowers heart attack and stroke vs statin treatment to similarly low LDL-C. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My lipid profile shows s.Cholesterol=239, hdl=28, s.Triglycerides=345, ldl=162 and vldl=47. What does this mean?
Particle Problems: This lipid panel is common and often hides a greater problem. As tg rises the number of LDL particles rises. However, when tg is high the amount of cholesterol carried by LDL particles goes down. This often results in a much higher LDL particle number (ldl-p) than measured ldl-c levels. When ldl-p is high cardiovascular risk is high independent of ldl-c, hdl-c, or tg values. Ldl-p <1000 is ideal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cardiac profile test ck-mb 17; ck 182; trop-t negative, lipid profile test total cholesterol 249mg/dl; triglyceride 169 ;hdlc 30; LDL 185 ;vldl 34?
Nasty: You have an elevated LDL (bad cholesterol) and low HDL (good cholesterol) - you need a life style adjustment as these place you at increased risk of heart attack and stroke. Attain and maintain normal weight. Daily exercise. Vegetarian or mediterranean diet. No smoking. I'd also bump up the atorin to 40 or 80 mg. ...Read more
Need more info: You did not provide your test results; however; the general issue is to lose weight, reduce consumption of saturated fats and exercise. Start exercise with walking and increase the intensity as tolerated. It will take about six months to see the full effect. If that does not do the trick then discuss taking statins with your doctor. ...Read more
My lipid profile reports are as follows: total cholestrol: 190, hdl:36, ldl:119, vldl cholestrol: 35, What does all of this mean?
Make lifestylechange: At your young age, your HDL should be higher (>45 mg/dl). this is good cholesherol: eat salmon, walnuts, avocado to name a few foods with good fats, and exercise regularly (20 mins even brisk walking 4x/wk) good. Then 6-8 months later, recheck lipids to see if HDL improved. LDL= bad cholesterol, Yours is Ok ( ...Read more
