The wife did a fasting blood test a few weeks ago and after some persuasion, the GP let her have some numbers. These were handed to her in a folded bit of paper with no explanation whatsoever so she is a little grumpy at the lack of customer service.
Anyway, it says
total cholesterol 5.9
ratio cholesterol/HDL 3.5
Triglycerides 0.5mol/l (?)
If there's anyone out there who can reasonably interpret these, anything would be better than the GP, who I can only assume is not bothered.
