Bloodwork back, total cholesterol is high, I am freaking out a little bit
So I recently got some bloodwork done, I have been tired. (I struggle with insomnia, partly because I have a daughter with a seizure disorder, but that story is for another time.)
I was curious to see what my cholesterol level was going to be. It was high.
Total cholesterol: 251
HDL cholesterol: 109
My ratios seem good, but that total cholesterol number sticks out like a sore thumb, it's freaking me out a bit. I have been eating primal since Thanksgiving time, I exercise 5x/week, my carbs are under 75 grams/day. I fluctuate between 80/20 and 90/10. I love the way I feel, so happy I don't have to feel hungry to be "healthy" and "fit". The primal way of eating seems like a good fit for me, until I got these results. Can anyone relate to this and what should I do? The doctor didn't mention anything, but he can be flakey sometimes, lol. Any input would be appreciated, thank you.
