A new study has reported, "targeting triglyceride-rich lipoproteins and low HDL cholesterol can provide a further reduction in cardiovascular risk for patients with metabolic abnormalities who are already at LDL-cholesterol goal."
It usggests that anyone with HDL below 40mg/dL or Triglycerides above 150 mg/dL should consider additional treatment if if they have lowered their LDL cholestrol to dsafe limits. You can read about it here:
Let's talk about the "Big Three." Post your LDL and HDL cholesterol test values along with your Trigyclerides here. It would be interesting to see where we all are and what we shoudl do next.
I'll start, here are mine:
HDL: 75 mg/dL
TG: 30 mg/dL
Like to know what I did to achieve these numbers? They were a lot worse when I started!
