Hi and welcome to HCM. You have slightly elevated sugar and lipids. ANd you shouldnt be worried. Your SGPT is also mildly elevated and there might be some minor liver fatty changes as a part of metabolic syndrome , but this is nothing to be concerned. Other findings are very good. All of these can be treated by changing dieatry habbits and do more exercise. There is no need for medications. YOu can do liver ultasounds to check any liver chanes but there is no ned to hurry.
Eat less sugar and fats. and avoid alcohol. This is most important.
Wish you good health.
