Hi Jimmylegs,

I looked on the web and the website I read says your level is good. According to hsfighters http://www.hsfighters.com/hcy_level.htm
normal is 6.3. The average person is 10. Higher levels can lead to heart disease, dimentia and alzheimers.

I have emailed my Neuro's office to see what my level is. You Piqued my curiosity. I will report back when I hear from the doctors office.
