Too many measurements cause confusion. Avoid unnecessary tests. Use funds for buying good quality foods, butter, almonds, cheese, eggs. Body requires food and rest, it does not need fashionable tests.

My Trygl levels and LDL are more than 250 for thd last 3 years. Presently taking fenofibrate and Lypoglid. I am not overweight (63 kg -5'3" ht). Do exercise daily. But fond of sweets since childhood may be the reason. Have history of cardiac diseases in family. My company doctors prescribe Ecosprin once patient gets heart attack. So can I take Ecosprin as a preventive medicine in addition to above or even by stopping them.

Dear Lybrateuser, - For vit d deficiency take sunlight exposure in the morning for 20-30 min, also vit d rich foods as fish like salmon, tuna, mackeral, eggs, milk & milk products, enriched foods such as orange juice, soy milk, cereals, mushrooms - vit b rich foods such as non veg, eggs, cheese, poultry - for cholesterol have more of fibre containing foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, sprouts, avoid fried, processed & junk foods, do regular exercise, can have green tea as it has antioxidant properties & is beneficial for your condition.

Good Or Bad Cholesterol - Things You Need To Know About It!

Good Or Bad Cholesterol - Things You Need To Know About It!

For a long time cholesterol in totality was seen as a bad thing for your body although the truth was a little more complicated than that. Cholesterol primarily is divided into two types, one of which can be categorized as bad cholesterol and the other as good cholesterol. Let's have an in-depth look at both the categories.

LDL or Low Density Lipoprotein aka bad cholesterol - Cholesterol is a wax like chemical which is found all over the body and it has important functions to perform. Cholesterol is carried all over the body by Lipoproteins. The low density lipoproteins are denoted as bad cholesterol as they can accumulate on the walls of the blood vessels and cause blockages resulting in many ailments. LDL levels of 190 and above are considered dangerous. 

Some of the risks associated with it are:
1. Heart disease
2. Stroke
3. Atherosclerosis
4. peripheral artery disease among many others

HDL or High Density Lipoprotein aka good cholesterol - This is a form of cholesterol which is usually desired in higher quantities as it removes LDL from the system by dislodging it from the arteries and then carrying it through the blood stream into the liver. The liver then breaks it down and removes it from the body. Thus, higher number of HDL cholesterol is always desirable. Some of the ideal numbers for HDL cholesterol within the body are:

Women - Ideal: 60 mg/dl, dangerous: 50 mg/dl or lower
Men - Ideal: 60 mg/dl, dangerous: 50 mg/dl lower

The role of triglycerides
Good and bad cholesterol levels also depend on the levels of triglycerides within the body and not just LDL or HDL cholesterol. Triglycerides are another type of fat which are used to store energy within the body but can also affect your health. It is most associated with atherosclerosis when the levels of triglycerides are high within the body. 

Some habits that contribute to high levels of it are

  1. Lack of physical activity
  2. Obesity or being overweight
  3. Excesses in alcohol consumption
  4. Smoking
  5. Bad diet and others

Thus the good cholesterol versus bad cholesterol war also includes other factors, most of which can be easily changed by making subtle changes in life style and incorporating healthier habits. This will increase the good cholesterol and the other relevant elements and reduce the bad.
