    Hdl/Ldl H is for Healthy

    If you believe in it

    Some people would say triglyceride are more important, the lower the better but below 1.0 is ok


    P.S. only replied because I like your avatar lol, I know nothing about nothing so feel free to ignore

    Your HDL to Cholesterol ratio comes in at 2.36 which is good.

    You may be able to calculate your own trigs.
    Total cholesterol is HDL+ LDL+ 46% of the trigs

    So, add up the LDL and HDL. Take this sum away from the total. The remainder is 46% of your trigs.
