Dear Madam
First of all, your lipid profile is not such that you should get tense.
Just relax. Please provide the levels of HDL as well as LDL. Please also mention that if you have diabetes/ high blood pressure or any history of heart disease or stroke.
With this information , I will be able to detail you about lipid profile in a much better way.

Brief Answer:
exercise, weight lose and fish intake will help

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ma'am,

Your VLDL and LDL are acceptable. The HDL is low. But it not an alarming situation. The HDL increases by exercise and fish intake beside some medicines. I do not recommend any medication for my patients with this kind of lipid profile. You must take an exercise prescription from your physician and start exercising. If you are a non-vegetarian, increase your fish intake.

Try to lose weight by modifying diet and exercise. You can meet a good dietitian for a complete diet chart preparation.

Repeat lipid profile after 6 months.
Do not feel stressed. Feel free to discuss further.

Sincerely
Dr Sukhvinder
