any advice?

Please post the following results (if the tests were all done) to facilitate a suitable response:

Total Cholesterol reading
HDL-Cholesterol reading
LDL-Cholesterol reading
Triglycerides reading

If your Total Cholesterol is 743mg/dl, this is grossly elevated. Normal range is less than 200mg/dl.
