I have some questions about cholesterol readings.
13 years ago (age 40), after getting an initial total cholesterol reading of 305, being quite concerned, I started cutting fats from my diet, which HAD included whole milk, eggs fried in butter, lots of fat in general. Since then I've had 5 full cholesterol screenings. The first one was 3 months after the 305 reading, after a lot of low-fat eating. It was total=162, LDL=102, HDL=44, TG=78, which gives a ratio of 3.
