    You can look up the normal values of each of those items.

    A lot of sites show in American values which is not the same measurement in Canada.

    A simple blood test can reveal whether your triglycerides fall into a healthy range: Normal — Less than 150 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL), or less than 1.7 millimoles per liter (mmol/L) Borderline high — 150 to 199 mg/dL (1.8 to 2.2 mmol/L) High — 200 to 499 mg/dL (2.3 to 5.6 mmol)Sep 13, 2018

    So your triglycerides are borderline high.

    Isn't there an international standard?

    No, Canada and Europe use different measurements for many things.
