My lipid profile . Serum cholesterol 195.And HDL cholesterol is 43.And LDL cholesterol is 105.And vldl cholesterol is 48. Triglyceride 240?
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

For starters, you should consult your physician about a program to initiate total life style changes. You may need drug therapy too. See your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Stick with Rx. Forms: Niacin, a b vitamin, in high doses (1-2) grams a day has a positive impact on the lipid profile. Early studies done with Niacin in men with heart disease showed no mortality benefit but secondary outcomes reduced recurrent mi. It has been shown to reduce plaque buildup when combined with bile acid binding resins. Recent studies in well treated patients have been neutral, with side effect concerns. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
Lab:ldl:159, cholesterol:267, triglycerides:347, hdl:39, chol/hdl:6.8, tsh:9.79, free t4:0.80, testosterone:total:78/free:3.1, eosinophil:7.1.Recommendation?
Talk to your doc!: Your cholesterol & triglycerides are too high. Proper nutrition could help fix this. Your HDL is too low. Physical activity would raise this. Your TSH is too high so you may want to consider levothyroxine. Your total & free t are more difficult to interpret b/c you gave results w/o reference ranges. As i've noted before, there are many ways to check/measure testosterone so reference range is key. ...Read more
HDL cholesterol 52
LDL cholesterol 161
total cholestrol/HDL cholesterol ratio 4.4
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

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
Lipoproteins.: Ldl (low density lipoprotein) and HDL (high density lipoprotein) are types of cholesterol. Ldl is so-called "bad cholesterol" because it increases the risk of heart disease by causing hardening of the arteries/atherosclerosis. Hdl is considered "good cholesterol" since it removes cholesterol from the walls of arteries. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

High Triglycerides: Can be a genetic issue passed down from either (or both) parents. If that is the case, sometimes even the strictest low carb, low sugar diet doesn't even help. 4 grams of flaxseed oil ; fish oil can help "naturally". Ask your doc to test your apo e genotype (lets you know how your body processes fats and what risk strata you are in.) check into advanced lipid testing from health diagnostic labs! ...Read more

Triglycerides: Triglycerides are the free fat storage molecules made from excess calories, especially excess sugars in the diet. Triglycerides thicken the blood leading to more arterial damage and growth of plaque that can block arteries. Triglycerides can be lowered with a low carb diet and regular exercise to burn off excess calories. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Low Carb and Omega-3: Triglyceride is the reserve form of fat and in high level increases risk of heart disease, pancreatitis, etc. The best way to reduce it is by lowering processed starch, sugar as well as saturated, animal based fat. Taking high quality omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil, flax seed oil, krill oil) is also a must to reduce your triglyceride levels. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Lowering TG's: If you want to lower your triglycerides (t) do the following: stay at a healthy weight. T's are stored as fat in your tissues and muscles. Eat fewer calories, as excess calories are converted to t. Eat a heart-healthy diet. Limit alcohol and high-calorie foods and carbohydrates, especially high-sugar foods such as cookies, soda, and fruit juices. Good luck. ...Read more
No--carbohydrates: Contribute to elevated lipid levels, as do many genetic factors. Many people think cholesterol and triglycerides are related to the fat they eat.In truth, you make many parts of your lipid panel worse by eating carbs and sugars. I would also recommend flaxseed oil or fish oil-up to 4 grams daily to help the triglycerides.Have doc check apo e, and advanced lipid profile, easier to pinpoint problems. ...Read more
Reduce Carb Intake: Reduce the fat intake and eat foods which are low in cholesterol. High triglyceride levels can result from eating an excess of fatty and sugary foods, being severely overweight, or drinking too much alcohol. By cutting back on alcohol and fatty-sugary foods, as well as exercising, can help decrease triglyceride levels. ...Read more

High chol & TGs: Avoid fast food that tends to b deep fried; choose lean meats, oily fish (salmon), foods high in omega-3 fats. Sugary, high glycemic carbs tend to raise tgs. Increase dietary fiber (absorbs fats) meds: omega-3 supplements (1000 mg enteric coated, 3-4 a day); rx for "statin" cholesterol-lowering agent from doc; some also recommend niacin/a fibrate to help lower tgs. Crestor (rosuvastatin) works well 4 both. ...Read more
Going on the principle that like dissolves like how can you possibly lower bad tryglycerides with any other than a "good" fat, like herbs?
Triglycerides: Triglycerides are made for fat storage from excess sugars and carbohydrates in the diet. These fat storage molecules thicken the blood and increase the likelihood of arterial damage over time. Triglycerides are not treated with herbs. Triglycerides are lowered by lowering the sugar in the diet, lowering the amount of overall calories you are consuming and with regular exercise. ...Read more
Fat: Trigylcerides are 3 fatty acids linked to a glycerol molecule. They are used as an energy source for the body and excess triglycerides are deposited in fat (adipose) tissue. If one has an excess of trigylcerides, they can be associated with a higher risk of coronary heart disease. Best of luck! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
