I was recently admitted to A + E in the early hours with faintness and palpitations. My pulse on waking up at 3am was 140. In hospital they took blood tests and my cholesterol wasn't given on the form for my GP but the following figures were. Can anyone translate them? Are they bad readings? I'm 71 years old and getting a bit anxious. The readings are: LDL 2.81, HDL 1.66, Cholesterol/HDL ratio 2.90, Triglycerides 0.73
