Intepretive Comment on Labs questions

I got my results in the mail and looked over my lipid profile and (though I'm not up to date on what all the numbers mean) I think it looks okay.

Cholesterol 168
Triglycerides 51
HDL Cholesterol 58
LDL (calculated) 100
Non-HDL Cholesterol 110
**interpretive comment:
**Highest risk patient, Non-HDL Chol. = <100
**High risk patient, Non-HDL Chol. = <130
HDL Risk Factor 2.9
**interpretive comment: Risk classification - desirable

I thought someone might know a thing or two about cholesterol and let me know if I'm good. I'm not really sure about the interpretive comments re: Non HDL Cholesterol and HDL Risk Factor.


JUDDD got me where I want to be!

While most Dr's would realy love your total chlosterol being down at 168 some Dr's are now questioning whether your chlosterol should be lower than about 200. Here is a graph from one chlosterol study that points this out.
