How do these numbers look?
As it turns out my cholesterol levels hadn't been received yet so what I saw was from the last time.
THIS time my levels were higher - not much of a surprise, that. Here is the breakdown.
CHOLESTEROL, TOTAL 219
CHOL/HDLC RATIO 3.71
Personally I don't see how 59+149 = 219. but that is what the report says. My overall total is higher, it was 155 in late 2010. 219 doesn't seem high enough to worry about and has to be attributed to the much higher percentage of meat and saturated fats in my diet. I THINK the ratio is fine but I wanted to check. The individual numbers well below what is considered normal.
