Cholestrol
My son is 23 years old, not overweight and not underweight. He had his cholestrol tested and it is 3.5 (at the chemist) - is that too low? And if so, is it dangerous?

Marian, it is low but not too low. If you want more information the best would be for him to have a fasting lipogram done. Good luck
