cholestrol and such

I went to a ND primarily for hair loss and chronic muscle pain (female upper 30s). she ordred a blood tets. i am quite confused.:
my total cholestrol is 141; LDL: 77 and HDL 51 yet the results says I'm a LDL size A/B advised to consider lowering LDL....if my figures are normal why would i not be A but A/B at moderate risk.
my TSH is 2.840 and sugar is 88
ESR, westegren (fibrinogen) is  14
does TSH level and fibrinogen affect a/b apptern..i am at a loss. inwas told i am at a risk for stroke
how do i lower LDL and at the same time increase my total cholestrol?

your total cholesterol should be under 200 and yours is. ldl should be under 100 and yours is. hdl should be above 50 if i'm correct on that, i've heard 60. anyway, to me your bloodwork looks very good but i'm not a dr. your tsh looks in the normal range as does your blood sugar. i don't understand either why they're worried about your ldl. like i said, i'm not a dr. and i hope you get more posts to your questions. there's a few people on this forum that are extremely knowlegable about these things. ask your dr. what the ranges should be for all these numbers and why they're so worried about your ldl when it's under 100. i hope this helps some. take care. remar
