Cut the butter and eggs back, switch from red meat to fish for protein. Wait 3 months to see what happens.
Your HDL is phenomenal. Because of that your TC/HDL ratio has increased only slightly despite the rise in LDL, and it's an extremely good ratio, well below 5.
See if dietary wonking the fat and protein can pull the LDL down to 200.
