I have just joined and I would be grateful for any help with the following. I am from the UK and I am confused about my cholesterol. My overall cholesterol is 9 which I know is high but my Ratio is 3.9 which is good. My HDL is 2.29 which is extremely high and I thought this would be good but I am told it is over double what it should be. I ran a 10 K last year and will be doing it again this year. I feel extremely well and fit and I also have a good diet. Should I be worried? I am 61 years of age with normal BP and I am a good weight for my height.
