Follow up with your doctor to monitor your progress. ...Read more

Hi. I did a fasting blood test. Cholesterol 198. Triglyceride 37. HDL 45. LDL 146. How good or bad these results are?

Pretty good: LDL's a wee bit higher than we'd like. See what you can do about that. Get back to that fitness-focused lifestyle you loved when you were a teen. I hope you'll make a healthy lifestyle, with fitness and sensible eating, central to what I'll bet will be a happy and healthy life. ...Read more

I have read that high cholesterol isn't correlated with heart disease and that triglyceride levels and blood pressure are better indicators. True?

I have read that high cholesterol isn't correlated with heart disease and that triglyceride levels and blood pressure are better indicators. True?

False: All of the parameters of the lipid profile are significant. We look to have your total cholesterol under 180. The ldl-cholesterol should at least be below 100 and even lower if you have a family history of cardiovascular disease. Triglycerides should be below 150. The HDL fraction of cholesterol is beneficial to have at least over 39. ...Read more

What is the best way to test blood and follow your cholesterol at home?

What is the best way to test blood and follow your cholesterol at home?

Hard to do: Although there are some "kits" that can give a total cholesterol level out there, i'd encourage you to work with your doctor on identifying & tx'ing your cardiovasc risks. There is more to cardiovasc risk than just cholesterol. Further cholesterol levels aren't something we follow daily like glucose (sugar) levels. Glad you're thinking about this; suggest you partner w/ your doc though. Good luck! ...Read more
