Thanks for the post!
I'm new here and got the following from the doctor:

Cholesterol - 220 - TOO HIGH
Triglycerides - 85 - GOOD
HDL - 49 - GOOD
LDL - 154 - TOO HIGH

Someone directed me to SparkPeople and I have started to try to get my health in order. NOT interested in medications!

I got my numbers back,

Triglyceride's 102
Total cholesterol 287
HDL 61
LDL 206

Looking at the doctors notes "Bad Cholesterol is Susprisd it was that high. Ummm
Could it be from all that warm water fish and shrimp I ate while on vacation? He isn't sure but I go back in October. I don't know either. But I hope the numbers drop.

Just had my labs. The physician went over every thing with me; which was a huge help. Seeing how I have a history of heart attacks in my family {grandfather on mothers side, grand mother on mothers side, aunt on mothers side, and my brother my mothers son} the Dr told me I needed to lower my LDL and bring up my HDL.

Total Cholesterol ~ 187 {range 0-199}
Triglycerides ~ 134 {range 0-149}
HDL ~ 39 {range 40-59}
LDL ~ 122 {range 0-99}

And so my new journey begins.

Hi everyone. I just wanted to get in the conversation here. While I am not having too many issues any longer with my cholesterol I am always at risk; so I am on a 6 week blood work cycle.

On 12/21/11
Cholesterol: 234
Triglyceride: 156
HDL: 46
LDL: 157


On 2/7/12
Cholesterol: 167
Triglyceride: 167
HDL: 47
LDL: 87

Yes, I am on medication; but I also started taking an herbal supplement that is reported to assist with lowering serum cholesterol. I will have to see what my next set of numbers are to see where things stand. I know my Trig's need to come down a bit more and my HDL need to go up a bit; but other than that, my Dr. was VERY happy to see these new numbers.

last time I went was a couple of months ago and my HDL was 117, my LDL was in the 130's and triglycerides was in the 170s. So does this mean I am borderline?

Think each doctor has his/her own way of doing the numbers am lucky that ours give us the entire breakdown along with what they consider normal and also any new information that is available she has printed out for a handout and is in language that we can understand take care and face the number one test at a time

I a a bit disappointed that my DR didn't request that my Cholesterol test be broken down...153 total, but that doesn't tell me whether my good cholesterol [HDL?] has improved, or not.

Question about my Nutrition page: It starts me at 300, but I've read recommendations to limit it to 200. If I eat one egg a day I have already gone over the limit...What number should I be trying for? emoticon

My team person (it seems like there's always someone new at the office) says that my number are OK, but the ratio (was that the right word?) is a type A and B. So we can't drop back on the meds yet.

I'll have to look that up.

Your doctor should give you the test results, which shows what the numbers are and the ranges on the printout. My doctor has always given me a copy for my records.

"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. "

I am under pressure by my doctor to take meds but have a hard time understanding the numbers.
I was told by him that my LDL is far to high, he used the number 4.7. (4 is the max it should be according to him)
But my HDL is exremely good according to him. Didn't give me a number.
I was also told that it doesn't matter that my HDL is so good all that counts is the LDL. Well what now? Can anyone elaborate on that one?
Is there a way to calculate my overall Cholesterol number?
Thanks for your help.
A very confused patient

Thank you for posting this. I saved this info for later in the year when I have my annual check up and lab work. Even though the doctor explains this to me when I go in to get my lab work results, it helps to have the info right in front of me so I can think about it when I get home. This helps a lot!

Achieving Optimal Levels

Your doctor can determine all of these numbers by doing a blood test, which should be a routine part of your annual physical. For a general guide, check out these recommendations from the American Academy of Family Physicians and the American Heart Association.

Total cholesterol level-
Less than 200 is best
Between 200 to 239 is borderline high
240 or more means you're at an increased risk for heart disease

LDL bad cholesterol-
Less than 130 is best;
From 130 to 159 is borderline high.
160 or higher means you're at higher risk for heart disease.

HDL good cholesterol-
Less than 40 means you're at higher risk for heart disease
60 or higher reduces your risk of heart disease.

Triglycerides-
Less than 150 is considered normal;
150 to 199 is borderline high
200 to 499 is high
500 or over is very high
