Hi, I have received my last blood results:

Doctor want me to start statin, but I am looking for some alternative help.

There are my results:

CND US
Total Cholesterol 8.42 (324 )

HDL Cholesterol 3.03 (118)

LDL Cholesterol 5.17 (199)


Cholesterol/ HDL ratio is 2.8

You don't state your Trig # but see what follows:

Your TC/HDL ratio = 2.7 <4.5 is considered good

Your LDL/HDL ratio = 1.7 <3.2 is considered good

These numbers show you to be in the low risk category. Many docs just look at the TC and don't consider the ratio. If the TC is high they freak out and put people on statins. Unless you have other considerations, these are certainly not numbers that would merit going on statins - IMO.

Best,

Tess
