Please note that I was not told to fast before giving this sample and it was taken about 3 hours after a very light breakfast of a banana and a small bowl of cereal.
Here are the recommendations of the American Heart Association:
Total cholesterol less than 200
HDL cholesterol at least > 40, ideally > 60
LDL cholesterol at least less than 130, ideally less than 100
Triglycerides less than 150
Your HDL is very good and triglycerides excellent. Your HDL is above 130, but your ratio of LDL:HDL is great at 1.9. The ideal ratio is less than 2.5. If you'd like to learn more about the lipid profile and ratios, check out this article:
