The Relationship Between Hdl And Ldl Cholesterol And Triglycerides
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

Total cholesterol: 257, HDL: 74, LDL: 167, Triglycerides: 82. Even though my #s are high, my ratio is 3.4. Isn't that ok for a 33yo female?
Ok but not great:
Assuming you don't smoke or have high BP, your risk for a stroke or heart attack over the next 10 years is very low, less than 1%. So generally you would not need meds for your cholesterol now.
However, if you have a family history of early heart disease (heart attack in Mom age ...Read more

Not ideal, but...: We would ideally prefer a higher HDL, but the overall picture seems pretty positive. Pursuing a "heart-healthy" lifestyle, with healthy eating habits, regular exercise and avoidance of bad habits like smoking or alcohol or drug abuse would certainly be advisable, and that may lead to improving HDL levels over time. Even so, your total cholesterol:HDL is still less than 5 (as preferred). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not necessarily: Whether you are prescribed statins or not are dependent on other issues. Your LDL of 122 is fine as long as you are not a post-heart attack patient. If you are a diabetic, this may also may influence your physician's decision to try statins. If you have no health issues at all, these levels appear fine. ...Read more
No: You have a very interesting lipid profile. You good Cholestetol is excellent. It eould have been lower if your TG were higher. Not knowing your dietary habits, your weight & FH with respect to CAD, I highly recommend that you try to fallow a low fat diet reduce your wright to achieve IBW. The goal is to bring your total Cholesterol to below 200 and your LDL to below 100. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Total cholesterol 210, triglycerides 77, HDL 72, LDL 123. Healthy 21 to make, anything to worry about?
Lipids: From the standpoint of your lipid levels, nothing to get worked up about. On the other hand, atherosclerotic risk is multifactorial. If you have a family history of atherosclerotic disease, diabetes, hypertension, smoking, obesity or some other things, your lipids being ok may not be enough. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Total cholesterol 159--triglycerides--49-- hdl 59-- Ldl--90-- is that normal for triglyceride. Thanks?
What is the significance of these numbers: my triglycerides are 79 HDL 66 LDL 126 total cholesterol is 208?
Depends on Particles: Both labs and risk factors are important in knowing cardiovascular (cvd) risk. More than cholesterol, cvd is related to the number of LDL (ldl-p) and HDL particles (hdl-p). Because cholesterol in LDL and HDL particles is highly variable cholesterol levels often disagree with particle number. When cholesterol and particle number disagree cvd risk tracks with ldl-p and hdl-p, not ldl-c or hdl-c. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Female total cholesterol: 214 vldl: 31 = triglycerides:156 hdl: 80 ldl: 103 results; good, bad, indiferent, what to do?
Total cholesterol 208. Hdl 36. Triglycerides 118. Ldl 148. I know I have to lower the bad but overall it's there any concern?
Hypercholesterolemia: Your total cholesterol is on the high side, and your HDL (the "good" cholesterol) is a bit low. Your risk of atherosclerosis, heart attack, stroke, and kidney damage will also depend on other risk factors and family history, but you can lower your risk with diet and exercise, and if your levels remain high, ask your doctor if a statin would help. ...Read more
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
