I got the results of my annual health screening. They do a full blood panel and the only reading that was a borderline risk was my HDL. That level was 44mg/dL, which is in the okay range, but ideally women should have an HDL above 60mg/dL. So I asked what additional steps I could take to get the level higher, since I already exercise, eat good fats and nuts, don't smoke, and am otherwise taking the steps to improve this number. I was told that my total cholesterol is "ridiculously low" (only 123mg/dL) and that it would be very difficult for me to get my HDL much higher than it already is. She said that I should be more concerned with the ratio of LDL to HDL (which is also good) and that I am doing everything right!

Also my triglycerides are down by half from last year!
