Serum cholesterol/HDL ratio = 5.5 ratio
Serum triglycerides = 2.15 (high)
Serum LDH = 4.4
Serum HDL = 1.2
Serum cholesterol = 6.6 (high)
Can anyone help interpret these please? I'm 27 with no family history of high cholesterol, heart disease or high blood pressure. I don't smoke or drink either. My blood pressure is normal but I have rheumatoid arthritis which apparently puts me at higher risk of heart disease. I was 5 stone overweight and have lost 4 stone so far over a year on a healthy eating kick - following he guidelines as much as possible. I exercise as much as someone with my physical disability can. My serum cholesterol has remained high despite my lifestyle changes over the last year. I don't really undertsnad what the other results mean. My GP is concerned and wants me to consider statins.
Thank you in advance.
