Explained below..

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query,

I have gone through your details,

The LDL levels of 146.6mgs is slightly elevated and therefore, the total cholesterol is also mildly elevated.

I would suggest you to do the following:

- In consideration with your age, you need not start on any medications.
- Consume a more healthy diet with less of fats and saturated oils.
- Engage in a daily exercise for minimum 45 mins.
- Also if possible, you can also check your thyroid levels, because any alterations in them can cause variations in cholesterol levels.

I hope this helps.

Please feel free to discuss further,

Regards
