High Cholesterol Message Board

High Cholesterol Board Index

Hi Jasil and welcome to the board.

Your doctor has advised you fairly wisely, but I feel he is looking at the wrong target.

Your Total Cholesterol of 200 is borderline
Your LDL of 136 is borderline
Your HDL of 34 is HIGH RISK
Your Triglyceride level of 150 is borderline

Yours ratios:
Your Total Cholesterol/HDL ratio is: 5.88 - (preferably under 5.0, ideally under 3.5) which places you AT RISK of developing CHD within ten years
Your HDL/LDL ratio is: 0.250 - (preferably over 0.3, ideally over 0.4) - at RISK
Your triglycerides/HDL ratio is: 4.412 - (preferably under 4, ideally under 2) HIGH RISK

Personally with your TC, Trigs and LDL being borderline, and your HDL being way too low, you need to concentrate on raising that by at least 6 points and not worrying about the other three at this moment in time.

Cut down on your Omega-6 intake to balance it with the following Omega-3 intake.
EPA/DHA at 2:1 ratio totalling 1gm. In addition start taking ~500mg Pure Krill oil daily. Ensure that the Krill preparation contains =>350mg Phospholipids and =>1.5mg Astaxanthin.

Take these for three months and lipid test again.

note: Omega-6 is pro-inflammatory and Omega-3 is anti-inflammatory.

Best of luck.
