Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

I have read your query & I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) Your cholesterol as well as HDL and LDL levels are normal.

2) The Cholesterol to LDL ratio is low means you have lower chance of heart disease. Because the lower the ratio, lower the chance of heart disease.

3) Hence it is good news and not to get worried.

I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any followup queries you have.
