39 is in "range" I think...haven't looked it up.  Higher is better, the best way I know to raise it is exercise.  Of course, raising the HDL without a lowering of the LDL means your total cholesterol number goes up, but that fine.  That is one reason the ration LDL/HDL is important.  The higher the HDL, the lower this number, and the better the indication.  I may have the ration upside down, but he theory is the same, high HDL to LDL is good.
