With a level of 110 for TC, I would be concerned that your HDL levels are probably too low (<35-40 mg/DL). I don't know your overall profile; you'll have to discuss it with your MD

Just for completeness.
Triglycerides 55
cholesterol total 110
HDL cholesterol 50
LDL cholesterol 49
T-3 Uptake 27
Hemoglobin A1C 4.7
Creatine Kinase Total 67
Ck-BB 0
Ck-MM 0
CK-mm 100

Both my GP and cardiologist are pleased, but finding that I am in the bottom 5% causes me to start looking further afield for more information. I'm aware that no Doctor can keep up with everything. The other thing that concerns me is that I have been having quite a few PVC's lately. B.P. resting normally runs about 118/60.

I think the earlier suggestion to talk to an endocrinologist is something I need to do.
