    Hi M. Reid,

     

    To determine where the "problem" might be that has caused this increase in total cholesterol, it'd be beneficial to know the breakdown of your total cholesterol.  By this I mean, what are your LDL, HDL, and triglyceride levels?  Knowing these numbers will help narrow down what changes are needed to reverse the increase.

     

    All the best,
