Brief Answer:
High triglycerides level

Detailed Answer:

Your uncle seems to having a mild derangement in the lipid profile.

All the values mentioned are normal except for Triglycerides, that is high at 334.5 mg/dl.

I have gone through the uploaded reports. Thank you for the same.

The preferred medication for same is the fibrate group of drugs. I usually prescribe Fenofibrate to my patients depending on their body needs. One example is Tablet Fenacor. This is a prescription drug. Please ask your uncle's doctor to prescribe him this medicine after careful clinical examination based on his body weight.

In addition, he must exercise regularly and avoid high fatty food.

Hope this helps you.
