It will be better to take the blood test in fasting condition. If it is >150 then go through treatment- 1.Dietary modification- Avoid fast foods & oily foods 2.Regular moderate exercise,eg ; walk 30 minutes as fast as you can daily 3.Drug - Atorvastatin (Lipitor)10 mg daily until normal cholesterol level.before taking the drug you must consult with your physician
