I have recently taken a cholesterol blood test. Results are Cholesterol Serum 205 mg; HDL Cholesterol Serum 41.0 mg; cholesterol hdl ratio 5.0; ldl level 104 mg; VLDL seru 60mg; triglycerides serum 299; non HDL cholesterol 164 mg. How bad of a shape is this? Are they any vitamins that can help with this, such as niacin? I really don t want to go on medication if I don t have to.

In September I fainted while out in about in a store. Shortly after that, I came on my period but it only lasted 2 days. My period for the last 4 months has been lasting for only 2 days. I am 25 years old and this has never happened. I took a pregnancy test a month ago (2 months after I started having 2 day periods) and it turned up negative. I almost fainted a second time in November. I have not seen a doctor because I recently got a new job and moved to a different state and have yet to find a provider especially considering I have been traveling often. I got a biometric screening done and all my numbers were normal. I had high bad cholestoral but very a good number for my good cholestoral. I just wanted a probable cause to this until I can schedule a doctors appointment. I have also gained weight.

I have high cholesterol and a family history of heart disease & am 51. What I don t understand is the numbers being close together. My last reading was 119/102.
