There's a mismatch here. If LDL is 78, TGs 200 and HDL 64, then the
total number comes up to 182, and that's certainly higher than the TC
number suggested above, even though all the other numbers are in range.
(I quoted my most recent labs!!!)

So what I'm wondering is, are the TG and TC numbers reversed? That is,
Total Cholesterol less than 200 and Triglycerides less than 150??
