... These are my results that calculator gave me: NCEP ATP III Recommendation No drug therapy is recommended as LDL-C <190 mg/dL (4.91 mmol/L) Treatment goal is LDL-C <160 mg/dL (<2.59 mmol/L) If triglycerides level is >200 mg/dl (>2.26 mmol/L) when LDL-C target is achieved, secondary goal for non-HDL-C (total minus HDL cholesterol) is <190 mg/dL (<4.91...

... HI, can somebody please help me understand my cholesterol numbers. My doctor said I should consider starting medicines/statins, but I told her to give me a little time to try diet change and exercise below is my lipid panel result. Thank so much for taking out time to look at it for me. Component Your Value Standard Range Cholesterol 288 mg/dL ... (0 replies)

Here is the report with TWO risk factors added in (relative with CHD and borderline high BP): NCEP ATP III Recommendation Consider drug therapy as LDL-C >130 mg/dL (3.36 mmol/L) Treatment goal is LDL-C <130 mg/dL (<3.36 mmol/L) If triglycerides level is >200 mg/dl (>2.26 mmol/L) when LDL-C target is achieved, secondary goal for non-HDL-C (total minus HDL...

... It really depends on how much fat, and how much I overeat. I can take mine as low as 55 mg/dL, and as long as I exercise, and maintain my weight, I am capped at 84 mg/dL. The difference was that my HDL that corresponded with the 55 LDL was 44 mg/dL or less, while my HDL that comes with the 84 mg/dL LDL is generally > 60 mg/dL. All of this is unmedicated (now). I am not... (8 replies)
... In addition to my diet suggestions above, you might want to start eating more eggs. Your total cholesterol can take it, and unless this test was a fluke, your HDL could use the extra boost. You can probably get your trigs down with an improved diet without too much trouble, but improving an HDL that low is not nearly as easy. Here are the figures you are aiming for: TC... (7 replies)

... I guess I was lucky and did not suffer adverse effects from the Tricor (it is a fibrate rather than a statin). At this stage, weight loss and diet change keep my triglycerides down below 60 mg/dL. They once were well in excess of 400. As for the fish oil, I do use that religiously. I take 3 2-g capsules daily. I think the minimum therapeutic dose is 3g/day. I am not... (16 replies)

... Thanks Jacqueline, It also seems that what SOME tests view as Lp(a), others (presumably the VAP) see a grouping of things like Lp (A1), Lp(A2), and Lp (A1+B) ...confusing and DISTINCTLY unamusing:D:D! So therefore your test probably was measuring only a fraction of what mine were. Here's a study indicating that Lp(a) is quite dangerous ...of course people undergoing... (10 replies)

... but since you lift weights...I can understand the desire to keep the proteins at a higher level. Again, for me, at higher weight, lowering carbs helped keep my triglycerides down a bit, but at lower weights, I can eat refined carbs like a maniac and my triglycerides stay in the 40s. ...

... Patric, Just as zip pointed out, low carb is not the best way for everyone. I actually lowered my triglycerides from 600 plus to the 30-40 mg/dL range I have now not by decreasing my carbohydrate percentage of my diet, but by actually increasing it. The difference now is multi-faceted. Compared to then, my diet is around 2500 cal/day rather than close to 4000. I was... (8 replies)
... Good day. I have been having some discomforting pain in my chest area recently. The pain appears to be near my heart, and between my heart and shoulder. I occasionally feel it 'travel' to my bicep area. Because of of this, I went to my doctor and had him perform some tests. One of those tests was a blood test, of course. Most everything came out normal, except these... (5 replies)
Lower Numbers??

... Good grief. You're numbers are about as perfect as any human can get. The only guidelines I know about that require an LDL below 70 (not 60) are for people with established heart disease, like me. Do you already have heart disease??? I doubt there is any human who can naturally sustain an LDL below 60 (I can't do it even with lots of meds, and lots of people with heart... (24 replies)
... Hi, :) Thanks for that information. I have not been told what level to aim for. What complicates my situation is a chronic kidney disease. It perpetuates the inflammatory processes and also effects the cardiac function. I still have a lot of reading to do. It seems to me that, rather than just one or two drugs from this class, the whole statin family of drugs has... (3 replies)
... Note that these levels give a total of 135 mg/dl (60 + 60 + 60/5) and a total / HDL ratio of 2.25. People in rural China reportedly have total cholesterol average around that range. Given their high level of physical exercise (manual labor doing farming and other work) and low levels of body fat, it would not be surprising if their HDL / LDL / VLDL breakdown were similar...
