High Cholesterol Board Index


I'm very new to this. I just got my blood results back from my Endocrinologist, I am hypothyroid. Anyway he didn't mention the high cholesteral results. I was wondering if anyone can help me with these numbers. I know nothing about this and I don't know how to read them. All I know is they are high. Also if you could help me and explain what HDL is and LDL, and how the ratio's work. Any help would be so much appreciated. Below are the results and thanks for any help.

Cholesterol, Total 220 (high) Ref Range 100-199
Triglyserides 164 (high) 0-149
HDL chol. 46 46-59
Vldl Chol Cal 33 5-40
LDL Chol. Cal 141 (high) 0-99

LDL/HDL Ratio 3.1 0.0 - 3.2

It looks awful to me and scary.
