Normal ranges are
LDL: 60 to 130 mg/dL
HDL: greater than 40 mg/dL
Total cholesterol: less than 200 mg/dL
Triglycerides: 10 to 150 mg/dL
VLDL: 2 to 38 mg/dl
Main culprit is LDL...higher levels are risk for atherosclerosis and cardiac have hyper cholesteremia as well as hypertryglyceridemia...Nonpharmacologic management of hypertriglyceridemia is generally the initial treatment for patients with this condition. This primarily involves lifestyle modifications such as diet, exercise, weight reduction, smoking cessation, and limiting alcohol intake.High LDL-C can be managed and controlled successfully with lifestyle changes, medications, or a combination of these approaches. Implementing lifestyle modifications, such as a low-fat and high-fiber diet, increased physical activity, and weight control, might decrease LDL-C levels by up to 20%–30%...consult physicians they will guide you further..
