Avatar n tn My last physical in December included a normal electrocardiogram, normal blood pressure, cholesterol 198 (down from 270 last year), but I'm still about 30 pounds overweight. The doctor also sent me for an echo test for the first time which also turned out normal. Although my cholesterol level was down significantly, my LDL is still far higher than my HDL and my triglycerides were, in the words of my doctor, off the chart.
469720 tn?1388146349 What Is High Blood Cholesterol? Cholesterol levels are determined through chemical analysis of a blood sample taken from a finger ***** or from a vein in the arm.

Avatar n tn I have been taking Lipitor (20mg) and my wife has been taking Simvastatin. Prior to being put on medication, my cholesterol had been running about 205 for a long time and my wife's had been around 160. What is the difference betwen the two? My medication is considerably higher than mine? Can you explain why? My blood sugar was running abot 137 so my Doctor also put me on Actoplus as well. My Lipitor is about $100 and my wife's Simvastatin is about $6 (same quantity of tables-30).

Avatar f tn One possibility Familial hypercholesterolemia, and in this case other family members may have high LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood. This is a genetic defect and you cannot do much about this. High dietary LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels could also be the cause even if the blood cholesterol levels are not so high. Controlling your diet can help this from increasing in size and prevent new ones from developing.

Avatar n tn His cholesterol is 399 (ldl). His doctor seems very concerned but does not want him on cholesterol medication because it is a burden on the liver and is due to this disease. Also, yesterday we received his latest bloodwork results and found that his bilirubin is elavated 1 point above the normal range. Iam aware that doctors watch this number in particular. What advice can you give as to how high does this number(bilirubin) has to be before we start thinking about a liver transplant.
