Re: cholesterol & Glucose levels
What specifically concerns you about them? What are the normal ranges for the lab that did the testing because they are normal for the ones I know about.

Re: cholesterol & Glucose levels
Glucose levels between 70 and 99 mg/dL are considered normal.
Total cholesterol values less than 200 mg/dL are considered normal.

Re: cholesterol & Glucose levels
Your glucose is normal and the TC is just barely off. Was this a fasting test? If not, then I wouldn't give it another thought! If it was, I'd lay off the fast food, fried food for a while. Otherwise, I wouldn't worry about it. It's not that's barely over.
