Is my LDL high?


I got my report as following (38 years, male, 5ft 4 inches, 76 kg weight)

Total cholesterol 242
Triglyceride 254
HDL Cholesterol 38
LDL cholesterol 153.2
VLDL Cholesterol 50.8

Do I need to start medication to lower my ldl or I can first check by exercising (walking half an hour per day) for few months and check again?

Re: Is my LDL high?

I'd call your LDL on the higher end of borderline high.
And your HDL is borderline low.
Your total cholesterol would have to be called high.

You could use some improvement in both. Try to restrict your animal fats if you are a meat eater, drink alcohol raises HDL.

I doubt that most doctors would start with meds yet.
