2 Triglyceride: 133 Cholesterol total: 132 Cholesterol HDL: 37 Cholesterol LDL: 72 Cholesterol total/cholesterol-HDL ratio: 3.6.1 good? Ok? Bad?
Numbers are numbers: Lab results usually are numbers, and numbers are just numbers, with little meaning unless a doctor takes in the whole picture of what's going on. The ordering doctor may or may not consider the results a problem, depending on the patient's illnesses, bodily condition, life habits, and exercise activities. It's better to have HDL at 50 or higher. TG in the 130's is ok, but 120's might be better. ...Read more

Lab data: 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. ...Read more
T3, (liothyronine) t4, total cholesterol, hdl, ldl, triglycerides & glucose all reports are in normal. Only TSH is 6.39 & lipoprotein lpa is 91.83 should I be concerned?
The high TSH suggests you are hypothyroid or heading that way despite "normal" T3 (liothyronine) & T4- low normal is not optimal. Check free T3 (liothyronine) & reverse T3 (liothyronine).
Lp (a) is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease; it is easier to neutralize than lower it- see http://tinyurl. Com/okcr5ms for a good discussion.
Statins don't lower Lp (a).

Concerns: Need to see a doctor. Elevated blood sugar, fasting, along with elelvated cholesterol are both risk factors for heart disease.

Important to get this addressed asap. ...Read more

Hdl and Ldl normal total cholesterol normal but triglycerides 258 I'm 23 what can I do to get them down?
Find and Fix Causes: The first step is to determine why the triglyceride (TG) is elevated at age 23. Your physician will need to check for several inherited and acquired medical conditions that can affect TG levels. Another alternative is to see a lipidologist (physician specializing in lipid and lipoprotein disorders). You can find a lipidologist at www. Lipidboard. Org (click "verify status", then search your state). ...Read more
Doctor ordered lipid profile and my cholesterol was 202 (standard range was 125-199) should I be concerned? LDL was 118. HDL 57 and triglyceride 135
Lipid panel done. Triglycerides 263, HDL 45, LDL 66, cholesterol 163. what would cause the high triglycerides with normal values otherwise?
It's possible to have isolated, high triglycerides. If that value was from a non-fasting test, and if you had a fatty meal before the test was done, you could see an isolated high trig level. But triglycerides at that level suggest that there may be an abnormality with lipid metabolism. Please be sure to follow up with your doctor about the results. Hope this helps. ...Read more

High cholesterol: You may have a condition known as familial hypercholesterolemia. This is more likely if you have family members who have had heart disease at an early age. You should talk to your provider about ways to lower your LDL cholesterol to prevent heart problems in the future. ...Read more
30y/o F w/ HDL of 38, LDL 91, triglyceride 115 & total cholesterol of 152. Dr said it was normal but the lab report said my HDL is low. I'm confused! ?
Both R true: Your HDL is technically just a bit "low" but your total cholesterol, LDL and TGs are normal - hence both statements are true! From your doctor's perspective, your HDL isn't abnormal enough to justify treatment even if we had an effective drug (we don't). Daily exercise is a healthy lifestyle and it raises HDL so it's definitely recommended. Beyond that, forget it. It's an inherited characteristic. ...Read more
My father is taking pravastatin 20mg for high cholesterol. Total cholesterol, LDL & HDL are normal but triglycerides are 250. Why is this & what to do?
Change medication.: Assuming he is following a prudent, cholesterol-lowering diet and exercise plan, Pravastatin is not created with the intent of lowering the triglycerides, no matter what dose he tries. Lipitor (atorvastatin) and Crestor will lower the cholesterol at safe doses, but they may be more expensive than Pravastatin, depending on his insurance plan. But they will lower the triglycerides and keep LDL and HDL in check. ...Read more

Because it helps prevent accumulation of lipids in blood vessels, HDL cholesterol is ...Read more
