The ratio was on blood test just below the results of Cholesterol readings which were good. It said my coronary risk ratio was 2.32 and average for females was 4.44.

I guessed it, but wanted to confirm.

You ratio signifies you have got protection against heart disease.

This is the ratio between total cholesterol & HDL (good).

The less the ratio ( that is less than 4) the better is the outcome.
