Doesn't look bad to me! If it were worryingly high, they would have put you on a medication called statins, which lower it. Try eating more nuts and seeds, and maybe oatmeal twice a week or so, but I shouldn't worry too much.

Thanks good to know I can’t help but worry am a worrier 😕

hehehe... I'd love results like that without meds! I think it's so close to OK that you should be able to deal with that with a whole foods / med diet and some more regular exercise... and maybe some trick foods: do you eat oatbran and those cholesterol-lowering drinks?

Sounds like you're doing well. I was told those drinks have most effect with a main meal but that might be wrong!

Thanks

Your only bad figure is your LDL cholesterol which should be 3.0 or below. This in turn pushes up the non-HDL and total cholesterol. Hopefully your lifestyle changes will help you hit the mark.
