I am a 64 year old female with no diabetes but on blood pressure medication. My total cholesterol is 285. My LDL is 177. My HDL is 71. My triglicerides are 165. I excercise often. Do I need a statin.

The HDL fraction of cholesterol is beneficial to have at least over 39. ...Read more
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
