High Cholesterol Board Index


Need some friendly advice... I'm 33. A little less than 2 years ago, I was prescribed Paxil for anxiety issues. At the time, my cholesterol numbers were fine:

Total: 190
HDL: 50-something
Tri: 98

A year and a half and 40 pounds later, numbers = HORRIBLE!

Total: 255
HDL: 25
Tri: 550

So, I quit Paxil, went on low-carb diet, lost 20 pounds (I'm now 190, 6'1") and started exercising... Number have improved, but still suck:

Total: 230
HDL: 29
Tri: 420

So, my doc said Lipitor... I said no. Any interpretation of these numbers? Obviously, I want to improve them, but without drugs. How bad are they?
