Cholestrol dilemma

my Apo B is 100 mg/dl.  This is OK.  My Aop A1 is 137 mg/dl.  Should be>115.  Ratio Apo B/Apo A1=0.73.  Should be <0.77.  My Lipoprotein (a) is 104 mmol/L (roughly 48 mg/dL).  This is also OK.  My Trigly~60, LDL-125, HDL - 50

All look good.  Apo B is a new & a better marker  than LDL  

Now this is the issue.  My LDL p is 1750 and this is a kind of high (ideally <1250).  Why such glaring difference?
