    Cholesterol went up 42% over a year?

    Every year we have health assessment at work and my numbers for cholesterol this year went up 42% compare to last year. My total went from 166 to 236 and my HDL went from 71 to >100. I don't have a specific HDL number because the machine can't process HDLs higher than 100. Becuase of HDL >100 my other cholesterol numbers are N/A. My triglycerides is 59, btw. Is the increase normal/natural in just a year? 42% seems a lot to me. I'm not on pills and my diet didn't change. Only thing i can think of is my workout routine.

    Thanks!
