I would recommend as follows:
Welcome to Ask a Doctor service!
I reviewed carefully her blood lipid profile report and would explain that her cholesterol levels are borderline.
You should know that the main indicators of dyslipidemia are Total cholesterol /HDL ratio and LDL/HDL ratio.
Based on her report these ratios are : Total cholesterol/HDL ratio is 3.9, while LDL/HDL ratio is 3.1 (normal values are Total cholesterol/HDL below 4.5 and LDL/HDL below 3.5).
For this reason, I don't think that there is any need for statins or any other medications regarding her blood lipid profile.
Anyway, I would recommend trying to reduce fat and sugar intake in her diet, increase food rich in omega 3 fatty acids (nuts, walnuts, fish oil, olive oil, etc.) and trying aerobics which can help reduce LDL values naturally.
Hope you will find this answer helpful!
I remain at your disposal for any further questions whenever you need!
