Exercise: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your tests are normal, except that HDL is at the low end of normal. The best way to increase HDL is to engage in exercise. Check with your doctor and start exercising with increasing vigor for at least 150 minutes/week.
