I have just had a cholesterol test and I am a bit confused about the results. My total cholesterol is pretty high BUT when I use the NHS website (calculating heart age) it says my ratio is healthy?
Total: 6.89 (267)
HDL: 2.07 (80)
LDL: 4.16 (161)
Triglycerides: 1.45 (127)
I understand that my 'bad' cholesterol is high at 4.16 but my 'good' cholesterol is also OK at 2.07 which gives a ratio of: 3.3
Any further input would be appreciated! Thanks
