... I smell a pissing contest :D ....did you mean better than mine? hehehe>>>>>>TC 143..HDL 74...LDL 54...TRIGS 74. (38 replies)
... That would be an interesting study. The reason why Totals of 150 are "game over" is because in 90% of the cases, the resulting LDLs are better than 90 anyway ( Example:using Total 150 with *low* HDL of 40 and Trigs of 100= LDL 90). Im lovin my new found Total of 143 :D (38 replies)

Need some help
Oct 23, 2003
... Hi, I am new to this board and need some help. I am so confused and upset. In July these were my numbers TC 224 TRI 180 HDL 44 LDL 144 Blood Sugar 87 Potassium 4.3 Hemoglobin 13.2 I have no idea what the last three mean really. Anyway, I was told to go on a strict low cholesterol diet and put on Xenical. I was told that in addition to some weight loss, this medication... (5 replies)
... I think you have reason to be happy about your numbers. Zetia is proven to lower TC and LDL and usually offers a slight increase in HDL. This is why I think your HDL may not be quite accurate in this particular reading. ... (21 replies)

... With respect to your hs-CRP, the first thing I would try, if you don't do this already, is adding an aspirin per day to your regimen. If you aren't taking folic acid (plus a B complex), I would recommend that also, even without finding out where your homocysteine is at...adding some fish oil/incorporating fresh fish in your diet would not hurt either. Others will probably... (3 replies)

... Well they aren't great by any means, but they are better then last time. Dr. asked me if I was doing anything different then last time and I told her I just cut back a bit more on my carbs., & eat oatmeal each morning. Naturally she would like to shove me on something for the cholesterol, but knowing my lousy side effects, just told me to keep doing what I'm doing, as at least... (3 replies)

... I think you should tell your doctor about the binge eating. It sounds like it is possibly relevant to the cholesterol situation. If nothing else, it sounds like something your doctor should know about. (3 replies)
... Hello. I am a 39 year old female. I had my cholesterol tested last week because my dad, who died from heart failure in 2002, had very high cholesterol because of familial hypercholesterolaemia. I am always worried that I might have inherited this, but so far my results have normally been on the higher side of normal. This time, however, my results were slightly outside... (0 replies)

... 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)
... 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)
