Low Cholesterol High Triglyceride Combination
Hello,

I have a low cholesterol / high triglyceride combination and am a little confused. My cholesterol info:  Serum : 132 mg/dl;  HDL: 23 mg/dl;  LDL: 66 mg/dl. However, the triglyceride (serum) is 950 mg/dl.

The reason I am concerned is that anything over 500 is considered very high for triglyceride, and mine is almost twice that. However, like I said, I am confused because my cholesterol levels are quite low, so I am not sure what to make of the triglyceride level and how it got that way.

FYI, my only vice is the occasional heavy drinking, bt my LFT's and RFT's are all within, or very close to the normal ranges (according to my lab reports). Also, I smoke, but rarely more than half a pack a day.  I am almost exclusively a meat eater, but I would say my sugar consumption is normal (also, according to my blood sugar levels, which have been taken at the same time as all the other tests). I am a 40 year old male. Finally, I would say that I am perhaps 15 pounds overweight, according to my height.

I would really appreciate your advice in this matter.

Please feel free to contact me for further info.

Regards,
Nabeel
