Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

HDL is 'good' cholesterol and protects the heart - higher the better!
You have written TWO values for it! - only one can be right...Check it up and give correct values for proper interpretation.

LDL is 'bad' cholesterol and is bad for the heart - lower the better.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
