    Excellent numbers for any age group. The goals for a young adult with no health problems is a total cholesterol of less than 200 mg/dL, an LDL cholesterol of less than 160 mg/dL, and an HDL cholesterol of above 35 [some would suggest 40] mg/dL. The goal for triglycerides is supposedly less than 150 mg/dL but you are close enough. I wish you the very best of health and happiness and in all things may God bless. JR

    That sound excellent. Most physicians want the total cholesterol to be below 200.
