[QUOTE=disney world;4103196]so why is my cl is high.[/QUOTE]

Total cholesterol = HDL + LDL + VLDL

VLDL is approximated by triglycerides / 5 for "normal" values of triglycerides.

Your HDL is high (good), LDL is borderline high (bad); added together make for a higher than "normal" total cholesterol level. But that is not as useful as knowing HDL and LDL (if your total cholesterol is high because only your HDL is high while your LDL and VLDL are low, that is good).
