    your LDL’s(bad) are a little high but because your HDL’s(good) is over 100, that is really good. It means that the LDL’s are in your system but are not going to "stick" to your arteries. To get over 100 HDL’s you must eat a lot of fish or olive oil. Those are the two best things you can intake.

    Ideal is aprox 70 LDL’s and 60-80+ HDL’s. But your ok
