... Our data indicate that current guidelines for lipid management may misclassify subjects with high levels of HDL and LDL cholesterol as well as those with low levels of HDL and LDL cholesterol. ... (13 replies)
... Thanks for the info!! I didn't know the statins didn't really help those with high HDL (at least in the elderly). Very interesting. I'm afraid to take medication, anyway. If I have to, I will, but I so want to go the natural route so that I don't have to worry about side affects or how it may affect my liver or kidneys. Thanks for responding!! (16 replies)
... HDL risk ratio is 4.0. ... (16 replies)

... smyrnaboy, Within testing error, I'd say the results of both tests are indentical for all practical purposes. And, of course, it's your LDL that's high giving a ratio of TC/HDL in the 5's rather than below 4.0. I'd cut the saturated fat from the diet as much as posssible. Seek out a few of the biggest fatty offenders and work on them. Dairy is often a good starting... (3 replies)
... HDL because LDL is a measure of bad cholesterol and HDL is a measure of good cholesterol. ... (4 replies)
... The usual criteria indicate lower risk due to low TC / HDL ratio, but higher risk due to HDL < 40. Your doctor is as puzzled by the results as well? You may want to consider getting a more detailed blood lipids test, particularly if you have family history of heart disease in people who do not have the usual risk factors (high LDL cholesterol, smoking, high blood pressure,...

... HDL ratio is not used on it's own by the doctors using the newer ratio targets as opposed to the old TC level solely. ... (4 replies)
... The current test measures total cholesterol and the breakdown of good HDL and bad LDL cholesterol. ... (20 replies)
... HDL risk ratio of 6.4. That, together with your family history, could spell trouble. ... (7 replies)
... Your calculated HDL is as below. ... (3 replies)
... The answer is...that's because to date, there is no "too high" for HDL. The main purpose of HDL is to transport cholesterol from tissue back to the liver. ... (9 replies)
... HDL risk ratio is 4.48, not 174. A risk ratio of 4.48 is not that great. I've read that for a woman, if it is 3.3 or lower, then that is low risk. However, my ratio was 2. ... (9 replies)
... My last two fasting blood tests have yielded normal HDL and TRIGs, but high LDL. The high LDL is skewing the TC as high and above 200. ... (3 replies)
... Is it ratios? one number? all numbers? Please see my latest results below. Thanks. TC: 223 Trig: 186 HDL: 43 LDL: 143 (4 replies)

... lbs. will put me at my ideal weight and likely drop the LDL and TC to a desireable level. So annoying that both times the LDL were the only high numbers. ... (3 replies)
... I found this "desired ratio" listed on the web, but it appeared that it went with the older guidelines where desired level of LDL was under 130, instead of the newer "under 100." They seem to have dropped the ratios on most of the medical sites under the newest guidelines. If anyone else can find it, please correct me with the current ratios. Desired ratio: TC/HDL ratio:...

... I've been concerned about my husband's cholesterol. He got it checked at a health fair type thing today and his HDL was 33. ... (12 replies)
... t is currently a mainstream opinion. But it is wearing a bit thin and is by no means a universal truth. It is generally accepted that the easiest way to increase HDL is to eat more saturated fat. ... (6 replies)
... I think that cutting saturated fats below 10% of your calories stands a pretty good chance of getting the LDL's down. It's not easy because I'm trying it and I know. If 6 months of a diet like that doesn't help enough, then in light of the lowish HDL's, there's always the statins. (3 replies)
