Hi, I took a health screening test at my work and got the results and wanted to see if anyone could help me understand them more. Not sure what all info is needed but I am 5'6" 225lb and I do have high blood pressure (I am on meds for it) the test was after 12 Hours of fasting. My Cholesterol numbers had me a little confused though, my total cholesterol was <100, HDL 26, TC/HDL 3.8, triglycerides 106, and LDL was N/A (I was told it was too low to measure). I was told the HDL was too low but the rest was good. Now I have read some places that if cholesterol is too low can be bad as well but no real info on what could happen. So I am hoping someone might know if I am ok or should worry about the numbers.View Thread
