My result from a Cholesterol test is 6.8.
1.9 HDL
and ratio is 3.6.

Doctor says I am low risk. (Is he right?)

Thought it should be under 5.5 or something.


(I am 8 stone 3 (52kg) and 5 foot one and three quarters inch tall)

Anyone got results to compare....?

    Think the important bit is 1.9HDL & the ratio

    Your Doctor probably knows better than an Accountancy forum mate.
