If you have lost weight recently that could explain your elevated LDLs. 157lbs is really scrawny for someone of your stature.

Your triglyceride/hdl ratio is great, so the prediction is that if you had a VAP test done, you'd find that your LDL is mostly large and fluffy (so good). If I were you, I wouldn't be concerned at all.
