Hello Laila
In general left axis deviation is not a problematic thing if the deviation is not big or unless it is accompanied by Other cardiac problems.
You definitely have high total and LDL cholesterol which must be taken care of by amending your food habits and regular exercises along with proper anti cholesterol medicine prescribed by your doctor.
Good thing in you is very good level of HDL and it is acting as heart protector to you.
Keep a regular date with your cardiologist.
