Cholesterol
When I got blood drawn for cholesterol testing, the nurse told me that I'd only hear back if there were anything abnormal. Several people told me that I should hear the results in any case, and, indeed, I got a letter today from my doctor with the results. Cholesterol of 117 and triglycerides of 77. Those are both apparently very good, so I don't have anything to worry about in that area for now. I think below 200 is good for cholesterol and below 150 is good for triglycerides.

Got a little time to do up some quick dishes before leaving for the airport.

Did they give you the HDL and LDL numbers?

No. But if my cholesterol is that low, do I need to worry about the HDL and LDL numbers? I don't really know anything about this.

Well, I'm not terribly knowledgeable either, but as I understand it, one is good cholesterol and one is bad. It is possible for your good cholesterol to be too low.
