Hi! Just got my cholesterol results back, and I think they are ok! But just to make sure ( I'm young I don't know that much about these sort of things ) I thought ill post them here to get your its opinions. Note this was not a fasting test, I took a fasting test today to get a more accurate result.

( I live in Australia so its in point form )

  • Lipid studies ( LIP-0 )

  • Chol - ( 3.0-4.5). mmol/L 6.7

  • Trig - ( 0.1-2.0 ). mmol/L 0.4
  • HDL - ( > 1.0 ). mmol/L 2.2
  • Chol/HDL ( < 4.5 ). 1.9
  • VLDL ( 0.1- 0.9 ). 0.2
  • LDL ( 2.1- 4.0 ). 1.7

Your triglycerides are very low, this is good.

Your HDL is high, this is good. Your HDL is higher than your triglycerides, this is very good.

Your LDL is low, this can be bad as sex hormones are made from LDL. Low triglycerides mean your LDL is most likely fluffy, which is good.

Total cholesterol is fine, if you're female higher is better.

Overall I'd say everything's fine.
