Thanks for asking.

Your cholesterol levels are on the higher side, the Total cholesterol and the bad cholesterol " LDL" both are on the high.Serum triglycerides though not so highly correlated with the atherosclerosis ,are still important.

Your GGT levels - 98 is also on the higher side, it is mostly high for persons with heavy alcohol intake.

You probably need to change your diet, taking care of the high fat and cholesterol diet with regular exercise.

A course of statins ( Lipid lowering drugs ) may also help, please consult your doctor to start them if you are unable to bring your levels down with diet and exercise alone.


Please let me know if you need more information.

Answered by Dr. Pankaj Malhan 14 minutes later
6-8 weeks a good time to see whether your levels are getting better or not with diet and exercise.

If no improvement in 6-8 weeks, tablets can be considered.
