High Cholesterol Message Board


High Cholesterol Board Index


I've seen other people post on this board with LDL's higher than 177. I have always been led to believe that this number seriousness is contingent upon other factors such as HDL and tryglycerides. If his total was 233, that would suggest he also had a low HDL - perhaps around 40??? That would make the TC/HDL ratio about 5.7 - not good!

Wouldn't this imbalance have been more important that LDL number by itself.

If his HDL had been in the 60's would that have made a difference?
