Don't ever worry: except reality and do which are supposed to. In view of that strong risk, I would encourage you to keep as low percent body fat as possible, your A1C diabetes tests should be in the 4's at this age. there is more to life and heart disease so choose to dietary program the fits best with your biology3 animal proteins/week and the remainder unprocessed whole foods vegan

Monitor it: I wouldn't give it another thought. We're not going to medicate you. Stay physically fit and be thankful for a low total cholesterol. Common sense needs to prevail. Best wishes.
