Question regarding cholesterol levels

Since adding more fat (mostly coconut and olive oil, avocado, butter, and some cream) my cholesterol levels have gone up (as I'd have expected). I've been happy about this, especially since discovering low cholesterol is bad for brain health. But since my LDL is increasing, I just want to be sure the trend is OK ... would I be better off at my 2009 numbers with the lower LDL? And what of the stories of HDL cholesterol turning "bad"? Obviously the 2009 CHL/HDLC ratio was better ... Thanks!

2009

Cholesterol total 144
Trigylcerides 36HDL cholesterol 93
LDL cholesterol 44
CHL/HDLC ratio 1.5

2012

Total Cholesterol 184
Triglycerides 33
HDL cholesterol 100
LDL cholesterol 77
CHL/HDLC ratio 1.8

2015

Total Cholesterol 190
Triglycerides 36
HDL cholesterol 106
LDL cholesterol 77
CHL/HDLC ratio 1.8
