Thanks for writing in.
First of all, congratulations for keeping your sugar levels well controlled. Secondly, the cholesterol levels are high and you would need to cut out oil completely from your diet. You would also need to be started on a drug called a statin which will help control your cholesterol levels. Also, as far as the heart disease is concerned, we can only find out for sure by doing a ECG and a treadmill test. This is definitely required since heart disease in diabetics can be remarkably silent.
Please see your physician and get these tests done. You definitely need them at this stage
