My numbers are

HDL 64
Trig 160
Total cholesterol 246

Do you think I need to take statins ? Just diet and excercie. The numbers confuse me at some seem high but the ratio of 3.8 seems acceptable Any help is appreciated. Doctor wants me to take statins but prefer not to if possible. Looking for other opinions Thanks
