... slight ache in my neck muscles, but otherwise no other issues. I still exercise and am keeping my low fat diet.

... I would have with your numbers is that your high trigs with your low HDL may be a risk factor in itself. In my particular situation my trigs were only slightly elevated 183 and my HDL was 32. My total cholesterol was below 200. I was 41 at the time and thought I was in excellent health. ... (12 replies)

... Thanks for your reply and encouraging words Yack. I do need to do some work to improve my LDL. As you said, it is not 'elevated' but it is not a perfect or ideal number so I will work on that. Please see below and help me understand if you see any trends. My tri is kind of erratic. Not sure if you can make any sense out of this but I couldn't put this in here in an excel... (4 replies)
... The biggest concern I see is the much elevated triglyceride level (should be <150 mg/dl, optimal <100 mg/dl) combined with a low HDL level (in men, should be >40 mg/dl, optimal >50 mg/dl). The triglyceride/HDL ratio has been shown to be a much better predictor of heart disease risk than total cholesterol or LDL levels which seem to be the only thing that doctors focus on. A...

... I always have elevated cholesterol in the ranges of: Tot. 180-235 Ldl 120-160 HDL 40’s Trig. Always in the normal range (100-120) After quit drinking last year, the readings stayed the same except a huge drop in HDL. It went as low as 28. I did two blood tests, in September 2006 and last week and here are the results: (3 replies)
... and then prescribe Statins, usually unnecessarily! Why you were put on them I don't know unless your Trig number was "off the wall", which I doubt. It's up to you, of course, but I wouldn't take statins with your good numbers. ... (4 replies)

... CHOL 321 (yikes) HDLD 121 TRIG 32 LDL-CALC 194 and no, these numbers are not typos or mixed up in any way. I am a 56-year old woman who feels great in every way. This freaky number came up from a test for a routine check-up. Because of the super-human HDL and TRIG levels, my doctor is NOT suggesting meds at this point, but is not sure what to add to my already... (9 replies)
... Ok - With your trigs at 370 - the LDL number is not accurate - when one is Using - LDL = TC-(HDL + TRig/5) this equation assumes that the individual is normolipemic (meaning your cholesterol is normal), when triglycerides are elevated (yours are) the Friedewald EQ becomes progressively inaccurate for reporting LDL. In fact, most labs won't report an LDL # when Trigs >... (23 replies)

... I know Rahod recommends Crestor frequently, but that would be my last choice. Crestor is exhibiting side effects similar to Baycol, which was withdrawn from the market in 2001. Have your doctor check your homocysteine levels too. From AMA: What is homocysteine, and how is it related to cardiovascular risk? Homocysteine is an amino acid in the blood. Too much of it is...

... I can't see how either Zetia or fish oil would cause liver enzyme problems :confused: . How could they? Certainly fish oil couldn't be the culprit. The fish oil brought down your high TRIGS and the Zetia brought down the TC and LDL. I guess you could drop each separetly and test the enzymes to find out. (28 replies)

... and my triglycerides went down instead of up. Anyway, I had to reduce the Niacin I took from 1500 mg to 500 mg because it was resulting in elevated bilirubin and wreaking havoc on my hepatic panel. I expected to lose the benefit to my HDL by having it drop, and for my LDL to go up some. ... (12 replies)
