Hi Disneyworld,

Hdl of 79 is a really good number, alot of us out there would love to have that. Total hdl of 155, I've never heard of. Usually there is hdl, ldl, trigs and total cholesterol. Perhaps you are talking about your total cholesterol number, if that's the case, that is also a good number. Sorry to hear about your husband passing, you hang in there and keep up the diet and excercise it will help to get that ldl down. Let us know about your new cholesterol numbers after your doc visit. Stay well my friend in North Carolina.
