In brief: Normal Lipid Levels

For a 26 years old female your numbers seem to be almost normal except your triglycerids are marginally elevated.
Your total cholesterol is very desirable, HDL 41 though not bad can be better, the higher the better.Your LDL level at 100 is normal, we like it below 100.If you do not have any other risk factors like obesity, family history, smoking, diabetes and hypertension then you can live with with it.
