    LDL

    My recent blood work shows LDL cholesterol of 112 H.
    Is this something to worry about? Change my diet?
    I eat healthy, exercise everyday - training for a half marathon. Is it something I am eating, not eating.
    Cholesteral total 188
    HDL - 58
    Triglycerides 82
    Chol ratio - 3.2
    Non HDL cholesterol - 138 H
