cholesterol
My total cholesterol was 253....good cholesterol was 106 (hdl ) and 133 (ldl) which the doctor said was a good ration. I just thought the total number was high. I exercise regularly..4 to 5 times a week for cardio and 2 times weight training. Just need another opinion thanks

Your total is high, but that is mostly driven by the fact that your HDL is 50 points over the good range, congrats! Your LDL is fine so no worries there. If you want to be sure, you could always get a particle size lipid panel to determine the size of your HDL particles. Large, fluffy particles are not as effective in removing LDL as the smaller more dense HDL. Overall, with your very low LDL I wouldn't be too concerned. What did your doctor want to do?
