Brief Answer:
Mild to moderate risk.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing in to us.

I have read through your query in detail.

Apo B 98 mg/ dl (Moderate risk of coronary heart disease - ref is <130 mg/ dl)
LDL-P 1526 (Borderline high - normal less than 1000)
sdLDL 45 (Borderline high)
%sdLDL 24 (Normal - Borderline)

The above levels are an indicator of risk to heart disease. Any heart disease is diagnosed by ECG, echocardiography and coronary angiography. As you are on atorvastatin and dietary control, you need not worry much.

Getting cholesterol checked regularly will help. You have not mentioned any previous treatment details since 2008 for your cholesterol problem.

I hope this helps,
Any further queries are welcome.
