Hi, just joined, and have some confusion about test results. My cholesterol test results are:- tc =6.1, hdl=1.5, ldl=4.2, serum cholesterol hdl ratio= 4.1. My fasting trygliceride is 0. 9. When discussed with gp he said losing weight and doing regular exercise would keep me healthy, but doubted it would make much difference to the overall results. He did not advise statins, which I don't want anyway. I'm not sure how bad these results are or if my triglicerides are too low. I am 55 yrs and about 1.5 stones overweight.
