Hi, Your lipid profile results are not much bad.
But as you mentioned you also have diabetes, then the things are changed.
You have to have strict control for diabetes.
Avoid oils, fats and sweet things.
It seems your gardening do not suffice. You have to do more exercises, better walk at least 5 kms. a day for at least 5 days in a week.
Start anti hyperlipid medicine in a smaller dose after consulting your doctor only because you are havind diabetes.
