Cholesteral total 240 HDL 61 LDL 145 triglycerides 165 how risky for me female 55?

Need Particle Data: High triglyceride (tg) is often a marker for high LDL particle number (ldl-p). As tg rise ldl-p rises. However, when tg is high the amount of cholesterol carried by LDL particles goes down. This often results in "normal" LDL cholesterol (ldl-c) and low hdl-c levels despite high (ldl-p). When ldl-p is high cardiovascular risk is high independent of ldl-c, hdl-c, tg levels. ...Read more
