I got back my blood panel results today!

Cholesterol (total) - 155
Triglyceride - 95
HDL Cholesterol - 35
Non-HDL Cholesterol - 120
LDL - 101

So, I don't know a whole lot about this kind of stuff. I have never had blood work done for tests like these. However, I am pretty sure that my HDL is way too low and I need to raise that. What do yall think? I'm sure yall know more about these things than I do...

Yes Kali your HDL is low for a woman your overall numbers is not bad though You can raise the HDL with exercise and eating some fats like nuts and avocados. I go fat free on nearly everything and get my fats from nuts and avocados

Kali, I guess my 1st post to you did not take. so here goes the 2nd one. WTG on the 2 DOWN!!! About the test results, get the medical people to help you on how these scores relate to each other and what needs to be done if anything. Reminds me to get mine done, too!

You are cemented in Onderland!!!!

Congrats on the 2 lbs. Yep, your HDL should be above 60, but your other numbers are good. Wish I had you LDL numbers - mine have improved hugely over the last year so still no meds, but I am still working on it. I credit my oatmeal, blueberry and walnut breakfasts, along with only the occasional red meat and cheese for improving my numbers. I go back in 4 months for another check. Hopefully, my LDL will continue to go down. Good luck. I bet just adding some good fats and maybe a fish oil capsule will help!
