High Cholesterol Message Board


High Cholesterol Board Index


I don't know about your liver enzymes, other than you don't want them elevated.

I figured your lipid panel using the first set of figures [I]before[/I] you started on Statins:

TC/HDL = 4.0 want it <4.5

LDL/HDL = 2.6 want it <3.2

You didn't state the Trig. number but, as you can see, your numbers are fine. Docs often use only the total cholesterol number (other than the preferred ratios) and then prescribe Statins, usually unnecessarily! Why you were put on them I don't know unless your Trig number was "off the wall", which I doubt. It's up to you, of course, but I wouldn't take statins with your good numbers.
