Vldl Cholesterol Range
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
Total cholesterol 159--triglycerides--49-- hdl 59-- Ldl--90-- is that normal for triglyceride..thanks?
My lipid profile cholesterol total 187, LDL 122, HDL 36, ratio cholesterol total/ cholesterol HDL 5.19. Trigliserida 83.Should I take atorvastatin?.
Need more info/data: Before advising, we need more information to determine your risk for a heart attack. Other factors to consider are your age, gender, blood pressure, family health history, whether you've smoked, and your complete history and physical examination. 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
Yes and No: Vldl (very low density cholesterol) is made in the liver, and contains both triglycerides (tg's) and cholesterol ( more tg's than cholesterol). Ldl is made in the blood stream from vldl, and contains more cholesterol, less tg's . Both have a protein called apob on the surface, but because LDL lasts longer , there is more LDL available. Both can cause plaque in arteries if levels are too high. ...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
Slightly: We like for total cholesterol be be less than 200 so that is somewhat high. However, your good cholesterol the HDL is high and this is good, over 60 is excellent. The LDL should be less than 130 unless you are diabetic or have heart disease in which case it should be less than 100. Triglycerides are normal. If you have diabetes or heart disease you probably need medicine, otherwise diet/exercise. ...Read more

Yes, meds+lifestyle: What is your BMI? Have you gained weight? This may affect your numbers and suggests a remedy as well. In addition to lipid medications, you need to be screened for type 2 diabetes and fatty liver. Beginning a proper diet and exercise program and losing weight weight will help as well.

Total cholesterol: HDL ratio 5.6 ratio, HDL level 1.4, LDL 5.3, triglycerides 2.6, serum cholesterol 7.9. My father had high cholesterol. Serious?
Very high: In the USA we use mg per deciliter so for our US readers, I'm going to convert yours: TC: 305, LDL: 204, HDL: 54, TG: 230. Your numbers are all very high. This is likely inherited and will not be normalized thru diet alone. I would have no issue advising a statin for you, but you should discuss it with your personal physician.

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

Higher the better: Acceptable hdl-c traditionally has a lower level in men of 40 mg/dl and 50 mg/dl in women. But generally, the higher the better. The problem is that our current therapies (lifestyle and drugs) have minimal to modest impact on raising hdl-c. Future agents may be more effective, but the proof of improved outcome will be needed. Plus, all hdl-c may not be alike, some more functional than others. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Biometric screening. I'm 31. Triglycerides =290,HDL=53,LDL=112,Total Cholesterol=223, Cholestrol/HDL Ratio=4.2,Glucose=99,BP 111/74. Tri high. Why?
May never find "why": I'm going to assume that this is fasting sample. A lot of this is hereditary. There's not a consensus about what to do with high triglycerides when other lipids seem okay. One idea is to spend a few months exercising like you did as a teenager and then checking. I bet you'll see things change for the better. Best wishes. ...Read more

Whatever else, this would be a great time to get back into that fitness-focused lifestyle you enjoyed so much when you were younger. Best wishes. ...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
