In brief: Worry re:other risks

First, i presume you mean your chol.
Is 230 and LDL 100. The only reason to worry about chol. Is to lower risk of heart disease but your chol. Is not very high and even having normal chol. Does not protect against heart disease. The real cause of heart disease is inflammation. See http://www.Sott.Net/article/242516-heart-surgeon-speaks-out-on-what-really-causes-heart-disease and my comment:.
