    I don't find a forum or thread on general health topics, so I'll put this here under food. Since food eaten has an effect on lipids in the blood, or so they say.
    My Results from lab on Sept 9, 2019:

    Triglycerides: 61 mg/dL

    Cholesterol, Total: 86 mg/dL

    HDL Cholesterol: 33 mg/dL

    LDL Cholesterol: 41 mg/dL

    VLDL Cholesterol: 12 mg/dL

    My HDL is a little low but not a cause for concern, since triglycerides are also very low. I don't take statins or any other cholesterol meds, or any other meds except for multivitamins with iron and Vitamin D. I have a prescription for diuretics which I can take on an "as needed" basis, since I sometimes tend to retain water.
