That' a good thing. The standard lipid panel measures levels of blood cholesterol and triglycerides (tg). These lipids are carried in the circulation by various lipoprotein particles. Tg is used to estimate vldl concentration, while the cholesterol carried in LDL and HDL (ldl-c and hdl-c) is used to estimate LDL and HDL particle concentrations. High HDL is commonly associated with lower heart disease risk.
Your doing well. This is good news! elevated HDL is a protective thing. Either you're living a healthy life or you have good genetics.
Be Informed Careful. Ldl is a lipoprotein, protein particle which transports all fats in the water outside cells & is the primary driver of atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis, after decades of asymptomatic artery enlargement leads to plaque ruptures & clots. Ldl is always in nmol/l, best <700, HDL in µmol/l, best largehdl>10 see NMR particle test. Tests of cholesterol, a fat made in every cell, are cheaper not better.
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?
See doc. Sounds like you need an internist. BP seems excessively high for someone your age. Need a good eval for secondary causes of htn. Also if trig > 500 should consider treating. If LDL also elevated atorva or rosuva statin might be good choice. Congrats on wt loss. Keep up the diet / exercise and wt loss. Read more...
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 more...
