Hi Elly:  I think the numbers are inaccurate here.  The total cholesterol is probably 143 with an LDL of 79.  Check with the lab to make sure these are right.

 

take care,

Hi Elly:  I would have you check these numbers again.  Its unlikely that your HDL is 143.  It is probably your total cholesterol that is 143, with a LDL of 79.
