    Hi HihoSilver,

     

    It's best to discuss your risk with your MD, but I'll give you my input based on your numbers alone.

     

    You total cholesterol is high, but I feel this is counteracted by your excellent HDL level and great low triglycerides.  Some MD's may prefer your LDL to be less than 100, but considering all other factors are within normal, I feel you are safe keeping LDL less than 130 mg/dl. 

     

    Again, consult your MD.

     

    All the best,
