Hi CJ,


Each acronym has a variety of possible meanings, I'll give you the medical one:


TGL - triglycerides or triglyceride lipase

AHDL - I'm not familiar with this acronym. (HDL - High Density Lipoprotein)

TSH - thyroid stimulating hormone


Each is different from LDL (low density lipoprotein).


All the best,
