Please Help – Test Results

I need some help from someone with a little knowledge out there. I had a chlolesterol screening, and don’t understand the results.

My HDL (good cholesterol) is 73. My LDL is 122 which accouding to the chart below is low. But now here is the kicker….My Cholesterol is at 212, which is HIGH. What gives? Where does the Cholesterol number come from. I added my HDL and LDL togeter and it doesn’t equal 212.

So how can my HDL be high and my LDL be low and them my Cholesterol number is off the charts bad….

Can someone explain this to me before I have to go on some weird fad diet….
