Sweets & alcohol. Most common cause is high intake of sweets (candy, juice, pop, gatorade, etc.), uncontrolled diabetes (high blood sugar), and consumption of alcohol (which our body process as a type of sugar). Avoid sweets, especially those in liquid form, control diabetes (if you have it), limit alcohol to 1-2 drinks per day at most. Exercise at least 5 days a week, keep a healthy weight.
Many. Diabetes, pre- diabetes, dysmetabolic syndrome, genetics, poor diet to name a few.
Bad diet. Metabolic syndrome is very preventable. Excessive sugar and carbohydrate intake cause high blood sugar levels, which then make your Insulin levels rise. Over time the chronically high Insulin levels lead to Insulin resistance and you will need to make higher and higher levels of Insulin to maintain normal blood sugar. The sugars must be stored as triglceridethis raises triglycerides and lowers hdl.
See below. Diabetes, out of control blood sugar, unlucky genes, a high fat diet, being overweight, smoking being sedentary.
29 yo women. What causes low HDL (0, 85)? My LDL (2, 15) is normal and triglycerides little bit high (1, 74 should be 1, 70). What should I do?
High Hdl is good. To lower triglycerides you must cut back on your carbs.
Possibly genetic. Exercise can help to increase hdl.
Obesity. Or inactive lifestyle.
9 y/o obese- high triglycerides, low HDL and ALT of 49. Doc recommended diet/exercise. Any other tests needed? Any activity restrictions required?
Diabetic? Regardless of what else is found a blood test suggesting abnormal lipids require lifestyle change intervention.
W 30 yo. Low HDL (0.85 vs 1.3 max), high triglycerides (1, 74), neutrophile (8 vs 7, 5 max), normal LDL 2.15, hba1c 5.2 and fgp 4, 6, TSH 2.23.no medica?
Lab data. It is very difficult, if not impossible to interpret lab data in the absence of clinical information or relevance. My advice is to discuss this with the doctor who ordered these tests and not try to self-diagnose over the internet. Best wishes.
Hi my husband having low HDL but normal LDL and very high tryglycerides and he is skinny person and BMI is perfect... Y this is happening for him?
Genetics. An important part of cholesterol determination is genetics.
Many Considerations. High triglyceride (tg), low hdl-c and slightly high ldl-c is a common problem. Possible causes include; genetic issues (familial combined hyperlipidemia, familial hypertriglyceridemia, familial dysbetalipoproteinemia); non-genetic causes (insulin resistance, type ii diabetes, thyroid abnormalities, chronic kidney disease, alcohol).
My blood test showed low hdl, normal ldl, 3x normal amount on triglycerides, any suggestions on how to fix these number?
Exercise. 30 minutes of aerobic exercise x 3-4 days will improve your Insulin sensitivity and will decrease your triglycerides and increase your hdl.
