Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to Healthcaremagic,
I've gone through your query and understand your concern,

Your findings suggests borderline raised LDL level.
Other factors are within normal limit.
With these findings,I suggest only to avoid fatty food and go for exercise to my patients.

I don't suggest for medicines at this stage.
I suggest to avoid saturated fat like red meat,fat rich milk products etc.
Go for exercise regularly and avoid alcohol,cigarettes if you take it.

In short,findings are almost normal.

Get well soon.
