I have found a couple of times when I have gone to the doctors there are things that they should have brought to my attention and didn't. Some times they will tell you that they will call you if there is anything to worry about in your test results, and they have you wait weeks or even months to see them again. But then you will get an email stating that your test results are done and you still have weeks or months before they are planning on discussing them with you. Then they don't call you so you think every thing is fine. And when you see them next and ask them they say everything is fine. But then they print out a summary sheet for that days visit and hand it too you as you are leaving and you read it and see it shows you have some issue that they never discussed with you before. So you have to turn back around and ask them what it is and what it means. And they might just say some thing like "Oh, we are sorry, we thought you already knew about that. That is what happened with me and my Scoliosis! They took ex-rays that showed it and didn't tell me about it as they said I was born with it and thought I knew about it, but I didn't. That happened like a yr ago, and I still never saw the exray to see what the scoliosis is doing to my spine and exactly where it is. We have to educate ourselves, and speak up, and ask questions. Prior to that they just let me think that the problem must have been the way I was bending or lifting. Not that I have something wrong that will just keep getting worse and not better. And I guess all my previous drs did the same thing, or maybe it wasn't as notice about until just recently?

I had found some other sites when I googled like this too and some values on them all are a little different. But at least this gives you some idea of what is on the report and what it means. So it makes it easier and faster to have a conversation with your dr about your real results and what they mean for you. Other wise you look at the reports and have no idea what they mean and you might not get to speak to your dr for several weeks after getting the results. And then when you get in he might be running late and be busy and might not take the time to discuss it all with you. This way you can see it and write down what you want to ask the dr or ofc.

JMAHNKEN thanks for the link. I find it interesting that some of the values are quite different than those reference by the lab that processed my last lipid panel.

JOECARRIZALES Wishing you a productive appointment with your doctor! Take care!!!

You are so welcome! It helped me to understand my results so that I was better informed when I saw my dr next to know what type of questions I should ask, what was really a concern or not really any thing to worry about. Take care. Janette

You should ask your Dr. to explain what needs to be done if anything. Make a follow up appointment with him/her.



Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.

Don't look back, you're not going that way

Different labs can have different ranges, so consult your doctor or look for the ranges on your test results.

The last time I had a lipid panel, our lab used the following values:

Cholesterol less than or equal to 239 mg/dL
Tryglyceride less than or equal to199 mg/dL
HDL greater than or equal to 45 mg/dL (considered the "good" cholesterol)
LDL less than or equal to129 mg/dL (considered the "bad" cholesterol)

For our lab, values within the guidelines listed above are considered normal. You might also want to search the Spark Articles and see if there are general values shared there.

Recently I had a Lipid Panel done at the Veterans Hospital and received the results 6/11/15.
This is how it reads: CoCHOL, 149; Trig, 151; HDL, 49; LDL, 70.
Need someone to interpret these numbers for me and let me know if I should be concern.
Will be turning 66 next month.
