I am a 60 yr. old female in excellent health. Had a Life Screening series of tests recently which included blood tests (lipid panel). Total cholesterol was 175, HDL 81, TRG 45, LDL (did not register after 2x ...was told machine registered down to 60....so ???), TC/HDL 2.1, GLU 84 (fasting), and non-HDL 93. hsC-reactive Protein was 3.08. This was a new test for me and the chart says that makes me at high risk for heart disease. Have read a little bit and understand that this number is an indication of inflammation in the system. What should this number mean to me? My question is "I had exercised at Curves that morning before the tests, had some really sore muscles from yardwork the three previous days, have used a topical steroid (Retin A) on my face for twenty years, am in treatment for Rosacea.........could any of these things cause this number to be high, or do I need to see my doctor for further tests??????
