(C;C) 1.6 Normal (higher) HDL "Good" Cholesterol.
(C;T) 1.5 Slightly lower HDL ("Good") Cholesterol.
(T;T) 1.9 Slightly lower HDL ("Good") Cholesterol.

This slightly reduces levels of good HDL cholesterol in your blood. And that's usually bad, because HDL cholesterol actually cleans your arteries and transports cholesterol out of your body. Things that can help raise HDL cholesterol if it is too low include: quitting smoking, losing weight, exercise, and niacin (vitamin B3).
