These are my results from last years blood test: Triglycerides 94,Cholesterol total 162, HDL Chol. 54, LDL Chol. 89, and Chol/Hdlc Ratio 3.0. However, this year they are: Triglycerides 252, Cholesterol total 243, HDL Chol.79, LDL Chol. 114, Chol/Hdlc Ratio 3.1 I don t know a THING about cholesterol and don t really know how serious these numbers are. This past year has been my first year in college so as you can imagine my diet is horrible. Also, I have been taking birth control pills..is it possible that the pills could raise my cholesterol that much or is it most likely my diet that caused that? Let me know any info because I am clueless and don t know how worried I should be!
