How would you feel? (Part Two) and my check up results

I can't believe it, my relative said right into my face: "The brand of the water heater you bought for me, it seems like I have not heard of that brand before." Gosh, how could she be so outright straightforward. Too much. That's it, I tell myself, no more second time, this will be the last time I buy a gift for her, so unappreciative!

By the way, good news is my check up results is good, no high cholesterol, no diabetes.

My LDL cholesterol level is 2.78 (desirable level is between 2.60 and 3.30)

LDL cholesterol can build up on the walls of your arteries and increase your chances of getting heart disease. That is why LDL cholesterol is known as bad cholesterol.

My HDL cholesterol level is 1.07 (desirable level is more than 1.00)

HDL cholesterol protects against heart disease by taking the bad cholesterol out of your blood and keeping it from building up in your arteries.

My Triglycerides level is 0.87 (desirable level is less than 1.70)

Triglycerides are fats carried in the blood from the food we eat. Excess calories, alcohol or sugar in the body are converted into triglycerides and stored in fat cells throughout the body.

Congrats on your good blood test results. Very healthy. As for your relative, you should say, if you don't want it, give it back to me.
