My husband has high levels of LDL cholesterol, 146 ldl. Diet is great. Could it be genetic, if so is there a test?
High LDL Cholesterol: Diet is not the only cause of elevated cholesterol. Cholesterol is mobilized as a healing molecule, and is elevated if the body is having inflammation. If he inflammation is in the arteries this leads to vascular disease, stroke, and heart attack. Decreasing sugar and processed foods helps, exercise, and anti-inflammatory herbs. Statin drugs also lower inflammation. Berkley cholesterol panel. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

High blood pressure 160 /100 my age 29 y.Test show hi level of triglycerides , hi level (ldl) low level( hdl) been a year on healthy diet lose 10 kg?
Keep going : The current weight is not provided, but if not at ideal body weight, further weight will likely help. Weight and diet are two pieces of the puzzle. Environmental factors and genetics predisposition are others. Blood pressure of 160/100 is hi for a 29 year old and most would start blood pressure medications at this point. Great job on the < 20 pounds weight loss. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Last month my LDL was 227mg/dl now it is 105mg/dl through diet,exercise and statin for a month. Is my risk for CAD is still very high?
Getting better.: You've lowered your LDL rather dramatically and, thereby, have reduced your risk of CAD going forward, as long as it stays this way. Would be even better if the triglycerides are low and the HDL is high, but as an individual parameter this is a great improvement. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tryg 119 hdl 49 ldl 178. Was asked to send more info on cholesterol usually around 200 statins or diet/ exercise? Usually not this high 200 normally
Yes, you're right: The numbers you submit add up to a total cholesterol of about 250 mg/dl, not 200. But usually our treatment decisions are based on LDL anyway. If, on another measurement, your LDL was 127, what we would expect with a total cholesterol of 200, lifestyle, i.e. diet and exercise, should be sufficient. However, if you have significant heart disease risk, LDL goal is <100 and meds may be needed. ...Read more

My HDL and triglycerides are very normal, but i have very High LDL what could be the reason? diet is minimal and not fatty,,I'm thin and have crohn's
Probably genetic: We talk little about the genetic component to LDL problems but they're actually a bigger factor than diet and exercise -- we simply can't do anything about them. And much of the traditional "wisdom" about diet and cholesterol probably isn't even true. Stay fit and be ready to accept medication should your physician and perhaps a second opinion consider it right for you. ...Read more
Good HDL trigs very high ldl, can't take statins, tried vit b3 100 mg, bad reaction in left temple an burning everywhere.What can I try, diet is healthy?
Niacin: You can use Niacin to lower LDL ; raise HDL but with a docs supervision because it effects the liver and you will need periodic blood tests. I can't understand if you are saying that your triglycerides are high also. If that is the case, good quality marine fish oil can greatly reduce them. Peace and good health. Since your own body makes most of your cholesterol, diet will help to about 20 %. ...Read more
female 58 yrs Small aneurism in ascending aorta and arch; also PFO; high LDL & chol- can't take statins. Willl diet & exercise be enough?
Depends on LDL level: AHA/ACC guidelines =treat based on an assessment of lifetime risk of developing heart disease. Typically, before statins are started, a sincere attempt at lifestyle changes, including avoiding saturated fats& exercising (atleast walking even 10,000 steps/day) ought to be undertaken. Recheck fasting lipids 6 months later. No egg yolks, no shellfish; eat salmon, almond/walnut (Incr. HDL) ...Read more

Hyperlipidemia: This is an interesting and much debatable subject. The answer depends on your risk factors for heart disease. Age is one of those risk factors, and you are high risk if you are over 45 for men and 55 for women. Other risk factors are gender (men have higher risk), smoking, blood pressure, and family history of heart disease. Without risk factors, this is a normal LDL level. ...Read more
35 M with no fam his, no smoke 22.4 BMI no BP. TC 209, LDL 140, HDL 36, trigly 165. Can I bring all to normal levels just using exercise and diet?
No need unless...: I wouldn't advise even trying to lower your LDL unless you have a high proportion of small dense LDL and/or elevated CRP and/or homocysteine.High chol. does not cause heart disease;inflammation does, but if inflamed then diet and exercise can lower chol.
