I'm no expert, but I think something is wrong with the information you were given. Either the test was flawed or the reported numbers are inaccurate.
Your total cholesterol is 277, which is too high for good health, however the problem is that they also give you a HDL of 196 and a LDL of 163.
Those two add up to 359 which is more than your total cholesterol.
I do not think that is possible.
You need to retest or get the real results correctly.
All your numbers are high.
I suspect you have listed your Triglycerides number, 196, as your HDL number.
Perhaps someone else may comment.
Are you positive you've read the results correctly?
