Hi and welcome to the forum.
That's a little confusing, isn't it? I encourage you to talk to your doctor about this.
Total cholesterol is made up of HDL and LDL cholesterol but also factors in VLDL and triglycerides. You can not get your total cholesterol number without all of this factored in.
Perhaps your VLDL (very low density lipids) or triglycerides are out of whack and higher than they should be. Do you know what these numbers are as well on your report?
This article is excellent at explaining it all. https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/articles/11920-cholesterol-numbers-what-do-they-mean
Things that raise triglycerides are eating things like a lot of white foods, like rice, pasta or bread or drinking a lot of alcohol. Normally if someone has high triglycerides, they recommend lifestyle changes to help improve that.
What is your total cholesterol number? Remember too that heredity plays a role in our cholesterol.
