I have always had good cholesterol and on the mid to low end of normal range. I just had some bloodwork done and I am kind of alarmed at a huge drop in my total cholesterol which went from 161 in 2007 (latest labs I could find) to 113 this last week.
Here are the rest of the numbers:
Last week lab:
Total 113 Normal range is 125-200
HDL 46 Normal Range is > OR=46
Triglycerides 36 Normal Range is <150
Chol/hdlc ration 2.5 Normal Range is , OR=5.0
LDL 60 <130
The old 2007 labs were
Total 161 Normal range is 125-200
HDL 54 Normal Range is > OR=40
Triglycerides 53 Normal Range is <150
Chol/hdlc ration 3 Normal Range is , OR=5.0
LDL 96 <130
Now from 2007 til now I have lost 40 lbs and I am excercising now on a regular basis which I never really did before.
Also my thyroid IS hypotyroid and at the moment out of wack.
Anyway I am planning on adding more good cholesterol to my diet do you guys have any other input?
ANYBODY ELSE with low cholesterol? I dont think this is a good thing. I know it is linked to depression and anxiety (anxiety I am experiencing)
Also my vitamin D was very borderline at 30 normal is 30-100 but some people consider 30 too low.
Thanks for any input you can have.
