Normal : These are normal values. Lower, of course, is always better. If you have known heart disease, these values are not low enough for secondary prevention, but if you don't have heart disease, your values are reasonable for primary prevention. Again, lower is always better. ...Read more

Triglyceride (Definition)

are crucially important, energy-dense, poorly-water-soluble molecules made of 3 fat molecules attached to a glycerol backbone. They are made by all animals, including humans http://goo.gl/H7mItd, mostly in the liver, as a way of storing energy & transported within fat carrying proteins (lipoproteins). Production & storage ↑es on sugar/carbohydrate LFHC foods driving ↑ LDL-P & ...Read more

These are not: good numbers! You will be at increasingly higher risk of significant cardiovascular and generalized atherosclerotic disease. You need to lose weight to a BMI of 23. Exercise regularly. See a health care provider to determine if drug therapy might also be needed. ...Read more

Normal or Healthy?: In us, typical total chol. Prior to first obvious heart attack: 170 mg/dl. However, cholesterol is made by every animal (including human) cell, part of cell membranes ; not correct issue; promoted as a ways to guess at LDL particle numbers yet poor correlation, esp. On individual basis. Nmr lipoprotein assay is highly accurate; lipid assays not. Trigs a bit high ; promoted by carb/sugar foods. ...Read more

Lipid profile: The basic lipid profile (total cholesterol, HDL, triglycerides, and calculated LDL) is a useful test for assessing the risk of atherosclerosis and heart disease. However it is only part of a complete evaluation, and must be interpreted in context of many other factors such as family history, blood pressure, diet, medical conditions, etc. Preventive consultation requires looking at all these. ...Read more

No consensus: Expect several answers from several different physicians. I've followed this for the past 30 years, watched recommendations come and go, and formed a non-specialist impression that this is first and foremost a marker for someone who could benefit from some healthy lifestyle choices before seeking health from a pill bottle. Why not undertake some father-daughter fitness activities? ...Read more

You should be doing the things you can to improve your risk factors, including a heart healthy low fat diet, regular aerobic exercise, not smoking etc. If you profile doesn't improve, medication will likely be needed (statin), or should be started now if you have other risk factors.

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 more
