Hi,
Thanks for writing in.
I am a qualified and certified cardiologist
Normal levels of lipid profile is Total cholesterol - <250
LDL < 130
for males HDL > 40
for you it is the LDL is very high and HDL. Is low.
If you are also having hypertension and diabetes and habit of smoking the risk of heart attack will increase.
For you to lower cholesterol levels rozavel (rosuvastatin) is suitable drug.
And for increase HDL levels you need regular exercise and walking.
To know the actual risk of heart attack you can go to google and type "Framingham risk score " which is calculator to assess risk of heart attack in next 10 years.
With Best Wishes. If there is a question I will be happy to answer, good luck.

you dint mentioned about whether you are diabetic or not.

if it is fasting it is normal only.
