Your message does not make sense.

There are several types of cholesterol. Total cholesterol, LDL (low density) cholesterol, and HDL (high density) cholesterol. And also usually reported is the level of the triglycerides.

I assume that you are talking about HDL, but not sure.

Post your full lipid profile (total, LDL, HDL, and trig). And if you don't have that get it from you doctor.

Also tell us you age, diet, activity level, and weight/age.

Those help give you a more meaningful answer.
