Hi and thank you for asking!
I read your query and understood your concerns.

Your cholesterol levels are optimal and you shouldn't worry about them. As long as you will take crestor they will be within normal values.

Your 10 years CVD rate will be less than 20% which is to be considered low.

Hope this will be of help!
Wish you health!
