My fasting sugar is 142mg/dl, s.Cholestrol 211, s.Triglycerides 267, HDL cholestrole 36, LDL cholestrol 146. Explain?
Lipoprotein Problem. High triglycerides (tg) and low hdl-c are markers for high LDL particle number (ldl-p). As tg goes up, ldl-p rises. However, when tg is high the amount of cholesterol carried by LDL particles (ldl-c) goes down. Thus, your true LDL level (ldl-p) is commonly higher than ldl-c. This is common in patients with high sugar. An ideal ldl-p is < 1000.
Cholesterol. You have diabetes with changes in your lipids consistent with diabetes mellitus. See your doctor.
What do you suggest if my fasing sugar is 142mg, /dl, s.cholestrol 211, s.triglycerides 267, HDL cholestrole 36, LDL cholestrol 146?
Diabetes & lipids. Hi. Control your diabetes. Tight control of diabetes dramatically lowers risk of bad eye, kidney, nerve, heart, amputation problems happening. You need a statin and perhaps fenofibrate for your lipids (heart attack risk). Eat healthily and exercise regularly for life. Take your medicine. See an eye doctor. Make sure your blood pressure is well controlled. Good luck!
My fasing sugar is 142mg, /dl, s.cholestrol 211, s.triglycerides 267, HDL cholestrole 36, LDL cholestrol 146? Are these levels normal?
Metabolic Syndrome. These numbers are not normal. In fact, they seem very consistent with something called metabolic syndrome - high blood sugar, high cholesterol, high LDL, high triglycerides, low HDL. It's linked to high insulin levels in the blood and, as you can imagine, is very atherogenic. If you're overweight, losing weight will certainly help this.
