I recommend discussing your risk level with your physician. As far as your cholesterol levels, the American Heart Association recommends:
Total cholesterol less than 200
HDL cholesterol at least > 40, ideally > 60
LDL cholesterol at least less than 130, ideally less than 100
Triglycerides less than 150
Here is a link to information on how to raise HDL cholesterol - http://www.healthcentral.com/cholesterol/c/42538/42319/tips-raise-hdl.
