Brief Answer:
Explained below,

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query in HealthcareMagic,

I have gone through the attached report of your wife and would like to suggest the following:

- Her cholesterol levels seems to be on the higher side, which as of now, does not require any medical treatment. I would suggest her to make necessary lifestyle modifications.

- Rest all changes does not demand any particular attention as these are bound to have some lab variations.

I would say its best for her to keep a check on her diet, consume less fats and oily foods, do regular brisk walking for 30 mins daily. This should be enough at this stage. Also drink plenty of fluids.

I hope this helps,

Please feel free to discuss further, or else kindly close the query and give a positive feedback,
