4 doctors agree

In brief: And the answer is

Total cholesterol under 200 is desirable (good) hdl less than 40 at risk of heart disease total LDL less than 100 good at 106 it is optimal.
At your age i would stay/get active and watch the fried foods, junk foods. Get healthy for a lifetime and check again in 4 months and you will be suprised at how fast you can turn the numbers around.

In brief: Maybe

While the LDL , triglycerides ( tg's) and total cholesterol levels are all in good ranges, the HDL cholesterol is low for a man ( should be >40).
Out of context of other cardiovascular risk factors ( age, family history, smoking history, weight, diet, or presence of any other conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure that might increase risk) hard to assess. See a heathcare practitioner.
