HDL below 40 is considered a risk factor for heart disease. The best way to increase it is through excercise. If that fails, there are drugs like Niacin. But usually, excercise is enough in young people. Good luck...

Thanks for query,
Your HDL cholesterol is 32,it is fine,
Your LDL is very high 180,this is a risk factor.
Go for regular exercise like walking,swimming,daily for 30-40 mnt for 5 days in a week will reduce your LDL.
Avoid fried,fatty and junk food.
Ok and bye.
