worry or not to worry?!

hi all,
I'm 25 yrs old. I weigh 68 kg and my height is 5.6". i gave my blood test yesterday and my result came as follow

Total Cholesterol mg/dL 311.20
HDL Cholesterol mg/dL 38.90
LDL Cholesterol mg/dL 261.44
VLDL Cholesterol mg/dl 10.9
Triglycerides mg/dL 54.3
HDL / LDL Ratio 0.1
LDL / HDL Ratio Normal 6.7
Total Cholesterol / HDL Ratio 8.0

I have always had a healthy diet. Eat fast food occasionally. Always avoided food that cause high cholesterol such as cheese, butter, clarified oil, beef, mutton etc. Because my father has high cholesterol and so does my grand mother. My dad had his by pass in 93 and angioplasty in 06 and since his heart is very weak got an I.C.D. implanted last yr. In spite of the fact that he is very particular about his diet. Never tasted things causing cholesterol. Even his food isn't cooked in oil after 93.

Are the results alarming?!

Re: worry or not to worry?!

Yes, it is very concerning. It may just be genetic. What did your doctor say?
