Brief Answer: Well Maintained Detailed Answer: Dear Friend. Hi , I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern. I appreciate your Lipid profile. Non-HDL cholesterol is approximately your total cholesterol minus your HDL "good cholesterol." Here's the formula: Non-HDL Cholesterol = Total Cholesterol – HDL Cholesterol. Your level of non-HDL may predict your risk of cardiovascular disease even better than your LDL "bad" cholesterol I can see and appreciate that you have well maintained your cholesterol figures. Continue the efforts you are doing to maintain this. This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you still have any query you may please ask me. Stay Healthy. Dr Anshul Varshney , MD
