Shannon, when I have looked thru my lab test hard copies, I saw that the lab techs had divided the hdl -good- cholesterol value into the total cholesterol value. So my last lab (I was 60+ ) came back with hdl of 44 and total of 170 and heart disease risk of 3.9. It was better when I was your age!! So your heart disease risk is about 2.2. Not bad : That's similar to what mine was. My husband and I think your trig number is to die for -mine have been ok ... but not like yours. I think blood pressure and blood sugar numbers are just as important, so please keep them in check High blood pressure is my downfall. I hope my story will encourage you in your efforts.
