Hi! My I’m a female 48 years old. Recently I did my blood cholesterol test and the reports are as follows TOTAL cholesterol (CHO): 232 mg/dl HDL: 52 mg/dl LDL: 194 mg/dl VLDL: 22 mg/dl Triglycerides: 134 mg/dl As is clear that my LDL and Total cholesterol levels are high.

Your total cholesterol and LDL are high and so you should immediately start with lifestyle mdofications measures like - 1. Daily exercise for atleast 40-45 mins in the form of brisk walking etc 2. Quit smoking & drinking. 3. Get a detailed diet counselling for a healthy heart diet which should be low in fried food, sugars and sweet and high in fibres, fruits, proteins etc. Get in touch with a cardiologist locally and get a baseline evaluation done with echo, ecg, TMT and thyroid profile. Follow these precautions for 8 weeks then repeat your lipid profile, if it is still high you will need to start medications.

Hi Doctor, Unknowingly I had alcohol yesterday and today had a full body check up. Everything is normal except my triglycerides. My LDL was normal and HDL is good. But triglycerides shouted up to 350. Is this normal or should I panic. I am 37 years male.

You are absolutely fine. You need not worry about that. What you need to do is leave all these reports and it's figures and chill.

Hi Mr. lybrate-user, With fatty liver, wee have to see your LDL and TGL and not only total cholestrol. Orvas has atorvaststin whihch is a medicaation to lower cholestrol. There are many medicines to lower cholestrol. If you have NASH (non alcoholic steatohepatits, the, Atorvas is not the drug of choice). Please send me your cholestrol report to see if you really need medication and if yes, then which one. I also need to know if you are diabetic or have any thyroid probles as they can contribute to having fatty liver. Take care.

Mr. lybrate-user, Your height and weight puts you in overweight category (BMI of >27, normal being 18-25). Its possible that you can control BP, cholesterol, and triglycerides up to a great extent just by some weight reduction, diet and exercise. Try to take less salt and carbohydrates. Also, if not checked, please get screened for diabetes and thyroid. Take care.
