i just noticed this week some of my cholesterol levels were high on some testing results from 3 months ago. I went back and looked at my results from 4-5 years ago, when I was still in great physical shape, and the difference is striking. My levels used to be the best possible, all of them. Now, they have all rised, and my doctor didn’t even mention it. Of course, they’re not totally off the chart, but if I keep it up this way, I’ll be taking medication in a few years. So my HDL cholesterol is something like 2.7 mmol/L which is high, my LDL cholesterol is okay at 2.7 mmol/L, triglycerids 0.85 mmol/L which I think is good and total cholesterol is 5.79 mmol/L which is high. Non HDL cholesterol is 3.08 and there is no reference, so I have no idea if it’s okay or not. Apparently too much of the good cholesterol (HDL) can also lead to cardiac problems. And I can’t find anything online to explain what elevated Total cholesterol means. Anyone knows what to make of this ?
