You numbers are indeed high. I sometimes think that on this forum we develop an overly cavalier attitude to these things. Sure, CW is wrong, but do we really know what is right? I don't think so.
Very high total cholesterol, especially in the presence of good HDL and TG, points to at least a couple of possible problems:
1) Copper deficiency (or copper biounavailability due to a zinc deficiency)
2) Thyroid problems
You can get your copper, zinc and other minerals checked with a hair tissue mineral analysis. I would do this first then change diet or supplementation to correct any imbalances.
Your physician can do thyroid tests, but it is not always easy to find a physician who can interpret the results correctly
