Please refer to the detailed answer below

Detailed Answer:
Hello

After going through the medical details provided by you and your reports attached I would like to tell you that ideally the lipid profile should be checked in a fasting state.

However from your reports I can make out that these results are from the non-fasting blood samples so in that condition your results are almost within normal limits and there is no significant variation.

As of now there is no need to repeat any other test and it is advisable just to maintain healthy lifestyle routine.

I hope this information will answer your query and will guide you properly.

Kind regards
Dr Bhanu XXXXXXX
