In Response To: Is cholesterol level of 117 too low? (Pete R)
On the CDC link for brief definitions for blood tests, it gives several useful values under the Lipids category.
*triglycerides normal range from 0-200 (100)
These latter three add up to the total cholesterol. NOTE that if we add up the three so-called optimums (100+81+85) we get 266 which is OVER the acceptable range for total cholesterol!!
That would make David's reading of 117 just a tad below the normal range,
(Much tthanks to David for giving enough info to work with.)
So, I think we have look to see if the component parts are each in range, and remember the optimums don't add up..(!!)
