I Am 36 Years Old Man. My Total Cholesterol 155, Hdl 40.60, Triglycerides 238, Ldl 66.76, Vldl 47. What Can I Do.

Answer

Hi Trilok Chand:

Here are the recommendations of the American Heart Association:

Total cholesterol less than 200
HDL cholesterol at least > 40, ideally > 60
LDL cholesterol at least less than 130, ideally less than 100
Triglycerides less than 150

Your triglycerides are elevated and your HDL is a little on the low end, and VLDL is slightly elevated.

These following links will provide information on how you can help change those levels. I do recommend you speak to a physician about your lab so they are monitored.
