Welcome to HCM
This is good more and more peoples are taking preventive health checkup. Your reading of Triglyceride is slightly high,just avoid high calories carbohydrates from diet and include Omega 3 fatty acid in diet which you can get from fish or almonds and Wal nuts.,take a balanced diet.

As VLDL is also high from which triglyceride is removed by a enzyme called LPL(Lipoprotein Lipase)
which is used for energy or storage,that is in adipose tisses.

**Take up regular waking or any outdoor game for 1 hour daily. Very important
See if there are oyher risk factors like obesity or High blood pressure
