Detailed Answer:
Dear sir
You have high triglycerides and low HDL. This combination is prevalent in diabetics, alcohol users, obese people, people who don't exercise, people who have thyroid and kidney disorder. Out of these diabetes, thyroid, kidney disease are ruled out by your reports. Refrain from alcohol. Maintain ideal body weight with body mass index of 23. Do daily exercise like brisk walk for about 45 minutes. Too much reliance on carbohydrates in diet like rice or cereals also lead to high triglycerides. Take a balance diet and may have opinion of dietitian. Avoid sweets and fried food.
If you have definity left smoking, this lipid profile do not warrant any medications.
You should adopt healthy diet and life style and repeat lipid profile after 12 weeks.
Feel free to discuss further.
Sincerely
Sukhvinder

Not at all. I wrote so in last answer. This lipid profile does not require any medication as of now. Your medication is life style and diet modification. Please do not restart smoking.
