 Cholest./HDL/LDL/Triglycerides.

 

Serum Cholesterol                95               mg/dl                   Up to 200 Desirable

Over 240 Higher Risk

 

HDL-Cholesterol                   24               mg/dL                  Up to 40 High

Risk Over 60 Low Risk

 

LDL                                        42               mg/dL        Up To 100

Non-HDL-C                           71               mg/dL        up to 130 optimal

Serum Triglycerides              143             mg/dL        Up to 150 Normal

150 – 199 Borderline

200 – 499 High

Serum VLDL Cholesterol                          29   mg/dl         Up To 30

T. Cholesterol / HDL Cholesterol             3.96                   Less Than 4.44

LDL/HDL Cholesterol                                1.75                   Less Than 3.22  

   Comments : –According to; the 2019 European Society of Cardiology / European Atherosclerosis Society  Guidelines for Dyslipidemia management; Therapeutic regimens target goals for LDL-C are < 55,70 &100 for very high , high &moderate risk patients.

Non HDL-C is an estimation of thermogenic lipoproteins ( VLDL, VLDL remnants, IDL, DL Lpa) and according to recent guidelines is a better risk indicator for CVD
