got my blood test resutls: total cholesterol: 244 (high: higher than 240), "neutral fat" (TG): 28 (low: lower than 30)
background: male (caucasian), around 30 y.o. / around 175 cm. height / around 60 kg weight / around 11-12% body fat / eating once a day (paleo 95%; zero carb on certain days - huuuge carb on other days) / working out a lot (bodyweight exercises like pull ups / push ups)
so, what should I conclude from that fact of high total cholesterol, but low "neutral fat" (TG)?
*there was no breakdown for LDL / HDL
** also: low erythrocytes, high albumin, high A/G, high AST, high ALT, high CPK ----- am I on a death run?

Minimum mortality for TC is between 200 and 240, so you're doing just fine. (See the J-Lit study data.) And low TC is even slightly worse than high TC:

The idea that TC > 200 is HIGH is directly contradicted by science. AFAIK TG/HDL is the most predictive of the "cholesterol" statistics, and with a TG of 28 it's impossible for you to be in anything but the low risk zone. (Unless you get a VAP or other expensive test, "LDL" is just calculated from the other numbers.)
I won't risk a guess at why liver enzymes are high...someone else will have to take that one.
You should have demanded a breakdown. Absolute cholesterol is about as useful as BMI.
