High Cholesterol Message Board

High Cholesterol Board Index

HDL (high-density lipoproteins)- "good/protective" cholesterol
LDL (low-density lipoproteins)- "bad" cholesterol
VLDL (very low-density lipoproteins)- also "bad" cholesterol
Triglycerides- fats carried in the blood

Looking at your results, it appears all aspects of your cholesterol can use some improvement.
Some of the most recent guidelines suggest that if you are female, having an HDL lower then 50 is considered a risk factor for heart disease. 60 and above is considered optimal.
LDL less than 100 is optimal.
Talk with your doctor about what you can do to improve your numbers. Also, if you had not been "fasting" for 12 hours prior to when your blood was drawn, the numbers would not be accurate (that would also explain your high triglyceride level). Hope this helps.
