    Just had my health check at work - BP, Cholestoral BMI etc.,

    My cholestoral was too low for the machine to record (under 3.88) and my BP was 117/79. BMI was just straying into the lightly shaded area -

    So what should I do?

    don't celebrate just yet, There is some debate about whether very low cholesterol is bad. Low cholesterol (less than 100 mg/dL (2.59 mmol/L)) is often seen when there is an existing problem like malnutrition, liver disease, or cancer. However there is no evidence that low cholesterol causes any of these problems.

    edit: you're cholesterol is above 2.59 so you're ok.
