Normal Hdl Levels
Am having rapid heat rate even at rest, echo and stress test and blood work all are normal? low HDL level,can i stop worrying? or was something missed
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
rapid heat rate at rest,shortness of breath, echo and stress test and blood work all are normal? low HDL level,can i stop worrying?
Worried?: What are you worried about, Julia? A rapid heart beat and shortness of breath need to be addressed. The blood work, echo and stress test are all helpful, but if you are still uncomfortable your doctor should work with you to find an answer and deal with it, even if the answer is anxiety. ...Read more
Over 40 mg%: Over 40-50 is normal but the higher the HDL Cholesterol (good) , the better. HDL cholesterol could be naturally high and improves with aerobic exercise. It is protective and nothing happens if it is high (protects from bad cholesterol, LDL, by helping the transport and metabolism in the liver). ...Read more

That' a good thing: The standard lipid panel measures levels of blood cholesterol and triglycerides (tg). These lipids are carried in the circulation by various lipoprotein particles. Tg is used to estimate vldl concentration, while the cholesterol carried in LDL and HDL (ldl-c and hdl-c) is used to estimate LDL and HDL particle concentrations. High HDL is commonly associated with lower heart disease risk. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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

Age 16, T cholesterol 370mgh/dl , HDL 1.16, LDL 7.36, T Chol/ HDL ratio 7.91, sugar level normal.. Is this very high
Something isn't: adding up. Perhaps typo...your ID info says age 76, not 16. Total cholesterol is given in mg/dl (370 IS high), but other values in mmol/l. However LDL of 7.36 mmol/l (284 mg/dl) is QUITE high, too. Unfortunately your 1.16 mmol/l (44 mg/dl) HDL isn't very far into the protective range. Ratio is high. Notes say you have had heart stent so cholesterol needs to be much lower;need meds. Review with Doc ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Got my cholesterol levels back: Overall its 4.4 - (170 mg/dl) - HDL - 43 LDL - 140 - Triglycerides - 106? doesn't make sense. Normal?
How can I increase HDL cholesterol? Mine is35mg/dl and serum cholesterol-that I guess total- is 220 mg/dl. Are my levels normal for31y male?
Dietary Changes 1st: An HDL over 60 is cardioprotective. Increase intake of monosaturated fats like olives, olive oil, avocado and most nuts esp walnuts will help but remember these are high calorie foods so only a small amount. A fish oil 1, 000mg to 3, 000mg omega3 is also great. Plant sterols/stanols help-a spread in the grocery store called 'benecol' can raise HDL using 1 or 2 tsp instead of butter or margarine. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
35 M with no fam his, no smoke 22.4 BMI no BP. TC 209, LDL 140, HDL 36, trigly 165. Can I bring all to normal levels just using exercise and diet?
No need unless...: I wouldn't advise even trying to lower your LDL unless you have a high proportion of small dense LDL and/or elevated CRP and/or homocysteine.High chol. does not cause heart disease;inflammation does, but if inflamed then diet and exercise can lower chol.

Unusual over 100: Hdl cholesterol (hdl-c) levels over 100 are vary uncommon. In general, high hdl-c may be the result of genetics (hyperalphalipoproteinemia), exercise, increased alcohol intake, or medications (niacin, fibrates). Rare causes include obstruction in the biliary tract, very high blood levels of dilantin, and organophosphate toxicity. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Are HDL and menses linked ? Does low HDL and the right level of LDL affect menses? If HDL become normal, does menses become regular ?
HDL/LDL: Low HDL is linked to extra weight but due to lack of exercise and not one's menstrual cycle. LDL are linked to poor diet control, heavy on fat or fried foods, and are not good for general health. Increased physical activity, high protein low fat low carbohydrate diet can raise HDL and lower LDL, which is on the road to good health ! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Can the experts please talk about the normal levels accepted of hdl, LDL and triglycerides in blood?
Normal Lipids: There is a lot of variation in lipid levels, and what is considered normal depends on age and presence or absence of diabetes and heart disease. These are what would be considered normal lipids for a middle aged person without diabetes and heart disease: hdl > 40 (male) or > 50 (female) ldl. ...Read more
Without fasting total cholestrol 370mgh/dl..doc gave vytorin (ezetimibe and simvastatin)..checked again after 11 days , with fasting all level normal but hdl also reduce. reason?
Expected response?: I'm not sure why you had labs repeated that quickly, unless making sure the treatment was not worsening your CLD. Not knowing what your baseline liver function tests where PRIOR to initiating Vytorin, (ezetimibe and simvastatin) I'd have to say that was a pretty aggressive move/ treatment for a 70+ year old with underlying CLD and meds you are already on. Anyhoot, HDL will not be expected to improve much, and exp to go down ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
High is good: Hdl - high density lipoprotein cholesterol - healthy cholesterol. One would want the level to be at least 40 mg/dl in men and at least 50 mg/dl in women. There's no side effects with a high hdl, so higher is better. Values over 70 mg/dl are more protective against heart attacks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
