Hi, I recently had a blood test at work and haven't had chance to take the results to my GP yet. I should start by saying I have a family history of heart disease/problems. My maternal grandmother had a stroke in her late 40s and died of a heart attack aged 54. My mother is displaying signs of what could be early heart problems (she's 48) but she refuses to go to the GP so we may not find out until something happens. I am 21 and female.
My blood test results (I have put the ranges in brackets):
Serum cholesterol 3.3mmol/L (<4.0), Serum HDL cholesterol level 1.1mmol/L (>1.2), Serum triglycerides 1.5mmol/L (0.3-1.8), Serum LDL cholesterol level 1.5mmol/L (<2.0), Serum cholesterol/HDL ratio 3 (<6), Se non HDL cholesterol level 2.2mmol/L.
It seems like the only one that isn't within range is the HDL level but I'm not sure what this means. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!
