My fasting sugar is 142mg/dl, s.Cholestrol 211, s.Triglycerides 267, HDL cholestrole 36, LDL cholestrol 146. Explain?
Lipoprotein Problem: High triglycerides (tg) and low hdl-c are markers for high LDL particle number (ldl-p). As tg goes up, ldl-p rises. However, when tg is high the amount of cholesterol carried by LDL particles (ldl-c) goes down. Thus, your true LDL level (ldl-p) is commonly higher than ldl-c. This is common in patients with high sugar. An ideal ldl-p is < 1000. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
Im diabetes type 2, total cholesterol-140, hdl-4, ldl-88, fasting sugar 99, can I drink coffee w/o sugar. Will it increase cholesterol or sugar..?
Diet & exercise: Moderate exercise (about 30 minutes 5 times a week) reduces LDL cholesterol and raises HDL cholesterol. Smoking can lower HDL levels, so stop smoking if you do. Eat lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean sources of protein. Include monounsaturated fats in your diet- olive oil/canola oil. Moderate consumption of alcohol may also positively impact HDL levels. 1 glass of wine a day. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Does sweetener zero calories contain lactose sucrose leucine crosscarmellose sodium which is diet sweetener effect on triglycerides like sugar ?
Sweeteners: Don't have calories, i agree. The trouble is that our taste mechanism is made up of 6 stimulants--- sweet, sour bitter, salt, astringent, and metal. All god made food provides flavor from permutations and combinations of the 6. A single sweet input provides a jolt of pleasure that is addictive. It is brain signals that govern our ability to adapt to our environment. We need to obey diet rules. ...Read more

PUFA's and MUFA's: Poly and mono unsaturated fats help raise hdl-c and lower ldl-c in the body. Beware ! fats are high in calories, so even good fats can make you gain weight which will increase triglycerides and lower hdl-c. Decreasing saturated fats will also help raise hdl-c, so cut out the meat, cheese, butter, palm, and coconut oil. ...Read more

Should I be worried. Help me.
Depends: All lab values need to be interpreted in context - target cholesterol varies on a patient to patient basis. The values above would generally be thought of as normal although a goal LDL should be less than 160. If you have medical comorbidities such as diabetes mellitus than your cholesterol should be lower. ...Read more
