Did u take some medicine or do some diet modification between June and August. Your triglycerides fell n LDL rose..thats kinda queer. Anyway, your current LDL and total r high so that puts u at risk for sure. Do u also smoke? I think u should consider consulting a doctor. It maybe possible to control ur levels with diet changes. My bf also had high levels, though somewhat less than ures. he made diet changes. his last reading was lower than before but still borderline high.

ur LDL is increased now and increased serum LDL will increase risk of heart disease...HDL is protective.....the normal range of LDL should be less than 190 mg/dl....even though ur LDL is in normal has raised significantly and i think u are at risk
