hi
welcome to health care magic
hi..her total cholesterol is a bit on higher side...in ladies with age after 45 years there is a decrease in oestrogen resulting in increased lipid profile levels..here she has a good hdl level...we would go ahead with life style modifications only...not with any medicines...have a fat free diet ..eat lots of fibre diet ..and have a good walk for 30 mons in morning which will reduce her triglycerides..
thank u..

I add a link with details of cholesterol http://hcd2.bupa.co.uk/fact_sheets/ html/cholesterol.html However, as cholesterol is a very debatable subject, you might find the details in the next link of interest. http://www.thegreatcholesterolcon.com/ Hope this helps matador 89

I prefer that she takes medication to lower the total cholesterol to the normal levels. I recommend you read the following article about high cholesterol:

two months ago I did two hydrocolonics in one week. after each colonic there was gel like substances with red squiggly lines coming out and minimal blood on the toilet paper. Ever since that I have been having a problem with food feeling like it gets stuck in the middle of my chest, burping a lot and a pain in my left back shoulder blade that radiates down my arm and up to my ear. It seems like when I eat fruits and vegetables I am fine with things not getting stuck in the middle of my chest but, protein and fats may be what causes the problem. My last cbc blood work showed my WBC count is 3.8 normal range between {4.0-12.0} K/UL my NEUTROPHIL count is 36.0 normal range between {41.0-71.0} % and my LYMOPHOCYTE count is 46.9 normal rainge is {24.0-44.0}%. I have been having these types of numbers for over nine years and my doctor doesn think anything about it. after researching on line I am questioning whether I could have the hpylori infection and a peptic ulcer. I ate some fruit about a year ago that my husband brought home from a market and got a pain so bad on my right lower abdomen that I could barely walk. I went and did a hydrocolonic and was able to get through it. I also have low vitamin d- 32 reference range: 30-100 unit ng/ml I also have high cholesterol 221 {140-200)mg/dl triglycerides 33 {30-150}mg/dl HDL 87{35-65}mg/dl chol/hdl ratio 2.54 {2.00-4.50}ratio VLDL 7 {6-30} mg/dl LDL 127 {70-130}mg/dl I am 46 years old and weigh 118lbs I am 5 2 . I jog and go to the gym at least 4 times a week.. I eat very healthy.. tons of fruits and vegetables and fish and chicken.. not much sugar or breads or pastries... on weekends we do drink beer and eat somewhat off but still not too bad... I am into natural remedies. Do you have any ideas what could be going on?
