Cholesterol / Triglyceride Level

I have a total cholesterol level of 158, HDL of 46, LDL of 79 and Triglyceride level of 165.  Am I at risk of a heart attack or stroke.

Hi there!

The total cholesterol, LDL and HDL are within the normal limits which do not increase the risk of ischaemic heart disease or strokes; while though the TG level is slightly higher, it is not believed to be a direct factor in IHD. However it is important to understand that the lipid profile is not the only association of the conditions, while other risk factors would also need to be kept under controlled for minimal risk.
Hope the information is helpful.

Take care!
