Sorry not sure of the best forum to post this,
Can anyone help me read my cholesterol results please?
I got my bloods done on the side (without going through a doctor) So I have no doctor to speak to about the results.
The only thing I am not sure of is the HDL ratio, these results are British so sorry if the numbers are not right for you American guys.
My total cholesterol is 6.3 mmol/L
HDL cholesterol is 0.7 mmol/L
Total chol:HDL ratio 9.0
Now I know that in the UK your chol should be below 5, and anything above 7 is normally treated with medication.
Which figure should I be looking at? the 6.3 or the 9.0?
