    I would like help understanding my overall health with cholesterol numbers, if I should be concerned with any of them. I am a 32 year old male and weigh 428 pounds. I am in the process of getting insurance approval to have bariatric surgery. Here are the results of my cholesterol from my last test taken on January 25 - Total cholesterol - 159 D-HDL - 37.9 Triglycerides - 70 VLDL - 14.0 LDL - 107 NON HDL CHOL - 121 CHOL/HDL - 4.2 What I already know is that my total cholesterol and triglycerides are in range. My LDL is slightly high, and my non HDL and CHOL/HDL are in range. However, there was no range for VLDL. I'm also curious to know overall if I should be highly concerned with my LDL being 107. Thank you. READ MORE
