Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

if your total cholesterol is too high, yes, your HDL can be too high

but if your total cholesterol and triglyerides are ok, then it is ok for your HDL to be high.

your LDL also needs to be low.

HDL 130 LDL 106 I have read that number is ***** just wondering if it is something I should be concerned about, i did have a complete work up and my CRP is 11.8

http://atvb.ahajournals.org/content/30/8/1657

is a good article about HDL and LDL levels

your CRP levels are not too high so I would not worry.

you should print out the article and bring it to your doctor to discuss.

but I would not stress about your HDL levels being too high.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
