Why are you asking us instead of your doctor?

We use mmol/l here for cholesterol levels and glucose etc. Your results are in different units . Where are you from? Agree best to see your own doctor

My GP was only to willing to give me the stats when I asked.

I have no idea but your cholesterol level seems very high to me unless you mean 2.8? If its 2.8 it should be fine but 280?
Surely your GP would highlight any problems? I would think - mine would.
