My total cholesterol was 204, i have lost 22 pounds since march. now my total cholesterol has dropped 4 points. but my hdl dropped as well, and triglycerides went up significantly. why would this happen although ive lost weight and eat healthier?

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. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, exercise is imperative to improve HDL. Wish you good health!
