    Unhappy LDL 331, HDL 34 Very High Cholesterol

    My doctor called me and told me to go to my pharmacy TODAY and pick up my rx for statins. My LDL is 331 and my HDL is only 34.

    He put me on Pravachol 40 mg. I hate to have to start this drug!

    Re: LDL 331, HDL 34 Very High Cholesterol

    It would be helpful to post all of your numbers. HDL-34, LDL-331, what are your triglycerides? You might want to try changing your diet and see how that goes. How is your BP? Does heart disease run in your family? Do you have any other health issues? Weight and age also affect LDL. Physical inactivity, poor diet and genetics can contribute to high LDL. Two of those things you can change :-)

    Best of luck.

    Some people just have high cholesterol from heredity.

    that's pretty high and needs to brought down even if you have to take medicine.
