In brief: Something isn't

adding up. Perhaps typo.
..your ID info says age 76, not 16. Total cholesterol is given in mg/dl (370 IS high), but other values in mmol/l. However LDL of 7.36 mmol/l (284 mg/dl) is QUITE high, too. Unfortunately your 1.16 mmol/l (44 mg/dl) HDL isn't very far into the protective range. Ratio is high. Notes say you have had heart stent so cholesterol needs to be much lower;need meds. Review with Doc

In brief: Yes. Way, way high

Cholesterol is not the sum total of cardiac risk, but you need to under the care of a competent physician.
