A little horn tootin' here... I had my first cholesterol test at age 40. Yeah, a little too long to wait but better late than never! I was worried it would be high because I just love cheese, dairy, eggs, shrimp...all the stuff that can elevate levels, which increases your chance for heart disease. here's my results! Total Cholesterol count is 204 (should be under 200) LDL (bad cholesterol) is 114 (should be under 130) HDL (Good cholesterol) is 84 (should be over 50) Triglycerides are 30 (should be under 150) Woo hoo!!
