High Cholesterol Board Index


The first thing I would do would be to get a copy of the tests. If your total is 230, it sounds like most of it is triglycerides. If you get them down, then your total level would be pretty good. I don't understand where he gets the 814 unless your trigs are much higher than 400, maybe closer to 650. Any number higher than 400 is not taken into account when estimating the total cholesterol.

The most effective way to lower triglycerides for most people is to cut carbohydrates in your diet. When I did this, my number dropped in half. If your trig level is really high, you may need medication also. I would find out exactly what the numbers are first.

The HDL result makes no sense, especially since he told you your number was desirable. Maybe he meant 60 instead of 6.
