I had a physical last week and just got my test results back. My total cholesterol is on the high side (214, and normal is less than 200). What I don't understand is why my hdl (good cholesterol) is high @112 (over 45 is normal), and my ldl (bad cholesterol) is low @ 87 (anything over 130 is too high) yet my total cholesterol # is bad??

 

*My triglycerides # is 77 (normal is less than 150).
