HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
The triglycerides are normal but the HDL
is a little low for a female ( it should be greater than 50 to exert a protective effect.
THE LDL goal levels varies with the number of individual risk factors. The risk factors are age greater than 55 for a female, smoking
, high blood pressure
, low HDL, family history of early heart disease
(a male family member with significant heart disease before age 55 and a female before age 65).
If you only have one of these and no other illnesses (such as diabetes
), then your LDL should be less than 160,
If you have at least 2 of these then it should be less than 130.
If you have a history of disease of the blood vessels of the heart or diabetes then it should be less than 100.
To lower your ldl you would need to exercise at least 150 mins a week and use a diet high in fiber.
In terms of the diet this would be: at least 5 servings of fruit and vegetables, barley, oats, whole grain products, brown rice/pasta/bread instead of white rice/pasta/bread.
I hope this helps
