    First here is the numbers

    Cholesterol Total 138

    Triglyceride 74

    HDL Cholesterol 60

    LDL Calculated 53


    Testosterone 616
    TSH .67

    Testosterone Free 140.2


    The total cholesterol seems very low, is that bad? How does the testosterone look? Anybody see anything of concern?

    your ldl could be a little bit lower. Your testosterone levels are good. You have nothing wrong dude.

    The last cholesterol test i took the total was like 93 and the doc said nothin about it so i think 138 would be fine.

    I never complained about my test being low, I was just curious. Would this be on the low side, high side, or smack dab in the middle normal?

    :coold: good cholesterol, don't worry about it, the lower the better, as long as your HDL is above 40.

    The range in my hospital is smaller. We use different units in the UK, but I think it is roughly 400-850. I've never seen a result over 1000.

    Can you post up the units. I can't really tell because we use different units in the UK for everything - TSH, cholesterol etc.

    The fax I got from the doctors office was a little blurry. My LDL is 53, not 63.


    all the units are mg/dl

    Oh right.. i think the ones in our lab are concentrations in terms of moles and millimoles. I'll have a look at converting them for you and comment later if you still want.
