What Does Hdl Do To Ldl
Pacman: Did you ever play pacman? Hdl is the LDL eating pacman. It helps decrease the total circulating LDL molecules and deliver them to the liver for storage and or disposal. You can not form plaques without inflammation of blood vessel walls and ldl(among other things). So the lower the circulating LDL levels are, the longer it takes to develop blocked arteries. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
HDL, or high density lipoprotein, is a molecule in the body that is responsible for the transport of lipids (fats) from various organs including blood vessels back to the liver for processing and possible elimination. Because it helps prevent accumulation of lipids in blood vessels, HDL cholesterol is ...Read more
Diet and Exercise...: Without knowing the rest of the results of your cholesterol profile(nor, if it was a fasting specimen) i would recommend a healthier diet; exercise 20-30 minutes 3-4 times/week, and drink more water. Eliminate fried and fatty foods and begin an omega-3 fatty acid supplement(you can eat some baked or steamed salmon 3-4 times/weed if you'd rather). Then check back with your doctor for a true sampl. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If my total cholest is 284 with HDL 100.9 and LDL 177 , trig 79, ratio 2.81. What is more important the levels or the ratio? What the ratio means?
Individual Values: Cardiovascular (cvd) risk is related to the number of LDL particles (ldl-p) and the number of HDL particles (hdl-p). When ldl-p is high or hdl-p is low cvd risk is elevated. Ratios report an LDL number divided by hdl. However, cvd risk can vary by 40% a the same ratio value. This is because you can get the same ratio with different LDL or HDL values (e.g., 2000/50 or 1000/25 give the same ratio). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cholesterol: Good numbers!Get a more detailed answer ›
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 2 more doctor answers
Cardiovascular Risk: Cholesterol is transported in the blood inside carrier vehicles called lipoprotein particles. Following entry into the artery wall low density lipoprotein (ldl) particles directly promote development of atherosclerosis ("hardening of the arteries") and increase risk for heart attack and stroke. High density lipoprotein (HDL) particles work in several ways to decrease atherosclerosis. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Lipids: Any lab test should not be interpreted in a vacuum but other factors need to be accounted for. These numbers don't seem so bad, but do you have any other risk factors - diabetes, hypertension, obesity, cigarette smoking, family history e.g. You may want to get a more sophisticated test looking at your lipid particle sizes. As lipid numbers go, though, on the surface these do not put you at risk. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Did fasting lipidp totalC 191, LDL 102, HDL 80, nonHDL 2.4. Q's:can HDL that is too high be a Problem I.e.80? Would ttalC 191 b better lowr?& nonHDL rnge says 60-130 mine ws 2.4! What does that mean?
No.: Your HDl cannot be too high. The higher the better. Your total is higher because it is included in a complex formula which contains your high HDL. Your lipid profile is excellent! Don't stress. That being said, if there is early cardiovascular disease in your family you may want to discuss other markers for cardiovascular risk including but not limited to an NMR lipid screening. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
