... My husband is a very healthy and active 28 year old, but no matter what he does, his cholesterol is still high. Our doctor doesn't want to put him on medication because of his age, but he's getting really frustrated that everytime he has it checked (every 6 mos), it's the same or just a few points lower and the doctor tells him the same things to do over and over. He goes to... (1 replies)

... I'm assuming you are not taking any cholesterol medications. Every 3 months sounds excessive for checking cholesterol.

... Ho Haaa! That's why you disappeared in October 2006. Welcome back! I was worried about you. Cassiebel also disappeared in October 2006. Same month as you. I wonder if she is OK? From your latest test results, you have been enjoying his cooking too much! Your TC/HDL ratio represents a ratio of two unhealthy numbers, making a statistically good ratio, but an... (9 replies)
... Since my friend moved in with me in October, I have been enjoying his cooking. But since he has no problems with blood lipids or family history of heart disease, he uses a lot more high-fat meats and far more cooking oils than I normally do, even though most oil is olive oil. Plus, he enjoys sweets and I've started making cookies (with butter) a couple of times a week. Of... (9 replies)
... The formula is TC = LDL + HDL + Tri's/5 . So your total cholesterol works out as 143.6 + 63 + 47/5 = 216 My understanding is that the higher HDL, is the better. So an HDL of 63 is very good. Its just higher than "normal". And your risk ratio 3.4 is good too. Mark :) (8 replies)

... If we look at the numbers that make up your total cholesterol, the only one that is out of line is your LDL. And at 143, it is only borderline high anyway. The TC/HDL ratio, which apparently is the best indicator of heart disease risk, is only 2.9. Anything under 4.5 is considered safe. So could your doctor be over-reacting? Cheers, Mark :) (21 replies)
