The only abnormality in my lipid panel is LDL 128. Is it time to stop my Lipitor statin drug. Now ?
Depends : It depends on what your LDL was to start and if you have any co-existing vascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, family history or smoking history. There are some numbers that are absolutely too high and meds are needed but many people fall into a grey zone and all variable need to be considered. Diet and exercise should be the first line of intervention for most people. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Lipid panel done on 05/09/2014, results are:CHOL 246.00 mg/dL. . TGL 78. HDL 43. LDL 187.4: meds and diet by doc not helping, suggestions?
Find and Fix Causes: It is important to determine why the LDL cholesterol is elevated. Your physician will need to check for several inherited and acquired medical conditions that can affect LDL levels. Another alternative is to see a lipidologist (physician specializing in lipid and lipoprotein disorders).

Please advise on someone with the following lipid panel being prescribed a statin: hdl=136, ldl=108, triglyc=50 total cho=248 I am 58, female, nonsmoker.
If : If those are your levels before taking any medication and there is no premature heart disease in your family and you have no high blood pressure or diabetes or heart disease or history of stroke you do not need treatment. Some people have a high HDL cholesterol and still get heart problems. But in general, an HDL level above 60 is associated with a lower risk of heart disease. Most experts do not use ratios now but look at non-hdl cholesterol (total minus the hdl) and the levels of LDL cholesterol. You appear to not need any lipid therapy with those levels. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does my lipid panel below need to get better:
total cholesterol: 178
Had a lipid panel! ttl cholesterol- 159. Triglycerides- 61. Hdl- 38. Ldl- 106. Vldl- 12. Ttl cholest/hdl- 4.1. Non-hdl- 118. Is this good?
And the answer is: Total cholesterol under 200 is desirable (good) hdl less than 40 at risk of heart disease total LDL less than 100 good at 106 it is optimal. At your age i would stay/get active and watch the fried foods, junk foods. Get healthy for a lifetime and check again in 4 months and you will be suprised at how fast you can turn the numbers around. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
