Same as prior weeks: Getting lipid panel test results is not a game, so there is no goal of getting better numbers within a week's time. One should be eating the same type of diet for the whole month prior to the testing, so that the results will reflect reality. If one eats more healthily for one week prior to the test just to get a better score, she may get better numbers but it won't reflect her past diet. ...Read more
My blood test shows high level of lipids 265. What should I do? What food should I eat and what to avoid. Shall I take medicine....? Help plzzzz
Vegetables are your: Friends. And not smothered in butter and salt. Lean meats no larger than a deck of cards or your palm. Fresh fruit is also good. Minimize yellow cheeses in favor of white cheeses. Eggs are ok but egg whites are better. This is a lifestyle so don't go to extremes by totally eliminating foods but rather each meal should be balanced and is a new opportunity to make better choices. ...Read more
Balanced diet: Weight loss (if overweight) will often lower cholesterol by up to 20% and triglycerides by up to 50%. Avoiding saturated fat (includes any fat from animals including chicken/cheese/pizza) will reduce cholesterol. Cutting back on carbohydrates in sugar, flour, bread, pasta, rice, potatoes will reduce triglycerides. Fruit, veggies, fish, nuts, soy, unsaturated fats are all fine. ...Read more

Minimally, if at all: Remember most of the cholesterol in your body is made by your liver. Only about 1/4 of it comes in through your diet, and if you are adequately fasting (at least 8 hours), most of the dietary cholesterol should be out of your system. Also, the total and HDL (good) cholesterols are not affected much by diet, and can be checked without fasting. ...Read more
Will drinking beer the day before lipid/blood sugar test effect the test? Or will I be good as long as I avoid all food and drink for 12 hours?
38yr old female 5' 1" 136lbs total lipid panel 236 trig 82 HDL 76 vldl 16 LDL is 144↑ I avoid fried/greasy foods & most sugar water/coffee only. Why?
Lipid panel: Blame it on genetics. Unfortunately many lipid panel abnormalities are difficult to pin down as to root cause. Good dietary analysis of other foods, like protein and carbs is also in order. Sometimes simple adjustments to diet can make the difference. But pretty good HDL on this report. ...Read more
About to start take 2.5mg of zyprexa (olanzapine). What kinds of food to eat to avoid increased weight, glucose and lipid levels? Planning strict diet and exercise
Total cholesterol 219, HDL 73, LDL 114, vldl 32, triglycerides 161. Thought I was eating good. No fried foods & not a lot of sugar. Is my lipid panel bad?
Need Particle Data: High triglyceride (tg) is often a marker for high LDL particle number (ldl-p). As tg rise ldl-p rises. However, when tg is high the amount of cholesterol carried by LDL particles goes down. This often results in "normal" LDL cholesterol (ldl-c) and low hdl-c levels despite high (ldl-p). When ldl-p is high cardiovascular risk is high independent of ldl-c, hdl-c, tg levels. ...Read more

At least 6: Depending on their density, size and the Apo proteins they carry, they are the chylomicrons, Very low density and intermediate density lipoprotein, low density and high density lipoproteins, and triglycerides. The cholesterol rich lipids carry the building blocks to make hormones, or repair tissues while triglycerides supply the fuel for body metabolism. The HDL class takes excess chol for disposal. ...Read more

Left arm has mild pain, off and on for days, my elbow aches, shoulder will hurt then stop. I'm 40 type 1 diabetic for two years now. Good Lipid panel?
Is not entirely clear. I assume it isn't about lipids (unlikely related to pain) and IS about pain. Without an exam, I can only give general information, and, muscle/joint aetiology is easy w. exam. Staying mobile very important. And. Nerve injury/pinch/irritation/neuropathy goes in the path of the nerve
neck-->shoulder-->elbow-->hand. Would NOT hurt to touch and more shooting type pain. ...Read more

Small intestine: Lipids are digested in the small intestine and absorbed with the assistance of bile which acts as an emulsifier, pancreas secretes lipase to breakdown some lipids and the small intestinal lining have enzymes at the "brush border" and certain shorter length fats can be absorbed directly in the intestines. Fats are then repackaged in the liver after digestion. ...Read more
