Answered by Dr. Kavita Paul 28 minutes later
Brief Answer: HDL Cholesterol denotes good cholesterol Detailed Answer: Hi, I appreciate your concern.The normal range of high density cholestero(HDL) is 50-60 mg/dL in women.Your HDL levels are little bit high. HDL Cholestrol is the good cholestrol in body. So you should not worry.High levels of HDL are desirable because of their inverse relation with coronary risk. HDL is called good cholesterol because it is inversely related with the incidence of atherosclerosis. HDL levels are increased in association with moderate ethanol consumption, regular aerobic exercise, weight loss and certain drugs like statin , insulin etc. I think you should not worry and continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I would be able to advisce you better , if you can send me your complete history alongwith your complete lipid profile. Hope it helps Dr. Kavita Paul
