Are your ratios...unsure because of the decimal points...This link is helpful if you have the original numbers
My numbers look way out of whack but when put into ratios look doc is still having me retest.

I hope the link will help, if not I am sure others will comment...they have been very supportive in my case.

My Dr. says my cholesterol numbers are better than his! Blood pressure, too. He said whatever I was doing, keep doing it.
