    Here are my numbers for my cholesterol. How concerned should I be?? I think my ratio's look good but my cholesterol is listed as high. This was testing done by a life insurance carrier. I have never had any concerns with my health before this.

    54 year old female. I have gained approx 40 pounds in two years. That is troubling in itself.

    I am 5'4" 163 pounds

    I have been sunrising everly day since last October. Grounding and eating my oysters!!

    Any advice or insight is greatly apprciated.

    My liver enzymes are not very good either.

    I'm not concerned about numbers, but why would you be?

    I have almost identical HDL and LDL cholesterol levels, I am not worried and my doctor neither :)
    If it helps any :)
    He calculated my cardiovascular disease risk (blood pressure and other factors included) and it was less than 1 %.

    If you really want to Access your cardiovascular disease risk you could get a coronary artery calcium scan.
    Unfortunately it is not covered by insurance or Medicare but it only cost about $150
