    Hi Mkmparvez,

     

    VLDL cholesterol is typically calculated from triglyceride levels. A few of the potential causes of low triglyceride levels (less than 10 mg/dl) include hyperthyroidism, malnutrition, and certain medication. I recommend discussing with your physician to determine the cause and if a treatment plan is needed.

     

    All the best,

    This could be a problem. To better understand the situation, we really need to the complete panel. VLDL is calculated from triglycerides divided by 5. Very low cholesterol is a sign of bad health or too high a statin dose.
