... Hi Mark, I did the conversion so I could understand your results (I'm in the US). First of all, LDL cholesterol is "estimated" using a formula, so although yours is elevated, it's not your "direct" level (might be higher or lower). Triglycerides are your main problem. Elevated trig's are a result of simple carbs, such as sugar and most things white: sugar, flour, rice,... (2 replies)
... Hi dazed & confused, Did your doctor check your homocysteine? Homocysteine is a better indicator of heart health than total cholesterol. Elevated homocysteine indicates "inflammation". Optimal homocysteine is 6.2 or less. Remedy is the B vitamins, especially folic acid, B6 and B12. I hope you meant your trig's were 377 and not 1377 ??? Cinnamon will help your... (23 replies)
... Hi Lilolill, Your LDL is high, but your trig's and HDL are excellent. LDL is not measured directly (the lab uses an equation) so 282 might just be a guess-timate. Re: Where do I get my knowledge from??? A solid year of research.............. My husband was on some type of cholesterol lowering drug for eight years. Lopid, Zocor, Lipitor and we even tried red yeast... (34 replies)

... s what my doctor is going by now. Makes it easier to see if her patients are meeting "goals" I guess. I've decided since I have no elevation whatsoever with my liver enzymes, I'll go along with increasing my niacin and try to meet those figures to make her happy and keep her off my back. ...

Info please?

... You certainly don't have anything to worry about, because overall your numbers are excellent. I believe that ratios are far more important than a single cholesterol number. As a general rule of thumb, use this guide to determine how well balanced your lipid profile is: TC/HDL.....ratio should be 4.0 or less. Yours is 2.53 LDL/HDL....ratio should be 2.5 or less. Yours is... (7 replies)

Niacin
May 30, 2003
... PartsRunner, On top of whatever you try, why not add a daily tsp. of cod-liver oil (or any fish oil or good source of Omega-3 oils) and a Tbsp. of lecithin. I have found them to work wonders (especially on getting my recalcitrant HDL's up). I take 10 mg Lipitor as well and have gone from cholesterol levels of "walking heart attack" to "Lowest Risk." Latest: LDL: 90... (13 replies)
Lab Numbers

... At 32 yrs old, I was still exercising 2-3 times weekly, albeit I had uncontrolled high bp, and was overweight by 20-30 lbs. My cholesterol was around 270, and my HDL around 35. As I approached 35, I quit exercising, my total cholesterol was <200, but my HDL went to 30, then 29, then 25 by March of this year. In March I had a heart attack, my RCA was 99 percent blocked, my... (11 replies)

... I have very similar levels (TC = 250, LDL = 187, HDL = 45, Trig = 151). I am in very good shape, exercise 4-5 times a week. But I eat way too many carbs. I've been trying to limit my carbs to under 50 grams/day (similar to Atkins, Protein Power, Sugar Busters, etc). I plan to be tested in a few weeks to see if it has reduced my blood levels.
