That is a good concern.
The LDL is very low and triglyceride also low.
However HDL is a good cholesterol which should be higher normally at least above 55.
Zocor or simvastatin helps to lower LDL and triglycerides, but has minimal action on HDL.
Given her very low LDL level, zocor is not necessary.
Even in heart disease and diabetes, as long as LDL level is below 70, this is good.
Please also discuss with her doctor. Niacin, fish oil can be used to raise HDL level.
