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

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

Still harmful.: Granted your LDL and triglycerides are at great levels, but this doesn't take away from the fact that a low HDL level is an independent risk factor for heart disease. This level needs to be brought up by cardiovascular exercise, Niacin, fish oil supplementation. ...Read more

Difference between LDL and triglyceride?

Types of lipids: A triglyceride is a molecular frame that has three fatty acids attached. This allows the fatty acids to be transported through the body. Types of these include "saturated" and "unsaturated" fats. Ldl is low density lipoprotein. Lipoprotein is a complicated structure of lipids (fat) and proteins. Ldl is important, but in elevated or in a pathologic form is the basis for atherosclerosis. ...Read more

Trig and ldl differ: Triglycerides and LDL are different things. Trigs go up wtih diabetes, nephrotic syndrome (a kidney problem), after very fatty meals (if you ate for example a cheeseburger right before test), and high trigs can be genetic (runs in the family). U need a recheck of your triglycerides, and treatment if they are still up like that. >500 i usually treat, because u can get pancreatitis if that hi. ...Read more

Carbs & Body Fat 1st: Keep in mind: LDL are complex particles with thousands of fat molecules (cholesterol, triglycerides, phospholipids, etc) per particle, ldl-c only estimated & often very misleading. Get NMR particle test for accurate LDL & HDL particle measurements. Carbs/sugar ??ed after ancel keys drove bogus theory about sat fat.

Not too bad.: Your risk of heart disease is increased a little over the average, but your 10 year risk of heart disease is actually fairly low. I guess 2%. Don't know your precise number because I do not know your blood pressure...Look at the Framingham Risk Score on line. Should put your mind at ease. Check your numbers with your doc so they can look at the bigger picture - Family history, other risks, etc. ...Read more
