Got my cholesterol tested :)
    #4416233 - 07/17/05 09:13 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

It was a free test they gave me when I donated blood so I didn't recieve my HDL and LDL levels, but my cholesterol is so low that my risk for heart disease is non-existent and the HDL levels are insignificant.  Anyway, my cholesterol was 144, so I'm happy.  I'm only 20 yrs. old but I'm technically Obese (5'9" 215lbs) so I wasn't sure what to expect.  Now I'm Happy :smile: woohoo don't have to worry about haveing a heart attack anytime soon.

Are you sure they said your HDL levels were "insignificant"? Because that's the "good" cholesterol, and low levels of that can be just as much a risk factor for heart disease as high LDL or triglycerides...

Yea, they said that as long as your total cholesterol is lower than 160 than your HDL levels won't matter because your risk for Heart Disease is nearly non-existant. I was looking at the chart that compares your cholesterol level with your HDL level as well and it tells you your risk for Heart Disease is extremely low even if your HDL levels are less than 20.

Ah I see. I've never had LDL readings below 160 before, so that's uncharted territory for me....

Wow, I'm not so thrilled about my low cholesterol anymore. I work at a Sleep Disorders Center, and a patient I have tonight is 59 yrs. old and his cholesterol is only 111.

How old are you? I hope my cholesterol never gets that high, good thing I'm started to take an interest in it while I'm still young. I'm sure it's much easier to prevent it from getting too high then to have to lower it later on.

Mid-30's. My doc says it's a hereditary thing. It is with a lot of people. I was sky-high there for a bit, but we have it under control, now. But even if you're young, it's never a bad idea to get your numbers checked out. This is especially true if there's a history of heart disease in your family.... :sun:

Yea, that's another reason I was worried. Both my mom and my dad have high cholesterol. My mom is like 212 and my dad is like 230. I'm not sure about my mom's LDL and HDL levels, but I know my dad's HDLs far outnumber his LDL so he's not that bad.

That was a smart thing to do, then! Although you shouldn't rest on your laurels, as it were. Mine was fine until I hit my 30's. So keep up with that testing every five or so years.

Ah.. a good HDL level can negate a lot of the nastier effects of the other stuff, I've heard....
