Detailed Answer:
Thanks for query dear patient.
Have gone through your details and i appreciate your concerns.

Your LDL cholestrol is only borderline high which means that its just mildly elevated.
Intially i would recommend you to folow lifestyle modification of 3 months initially.

This involve-
Work out al least 5 days in a week.
Cardio exercise should be done 10 minutes everyday for 3 months.
Try o avoid over oily food.
Drink plenty of water.
Take lots of fresh and colored vegetables daily.
Eat at least 20-25 grams of fibers daily.
Doing just regular walk won't help speed of walking should not be less then 5km/hr.
If you want you can takr natural anti lipid capaule prelipid twice daily for 3 months.
Hope i was helpful.

Brief Answer:
You need a good work out session at least 4 days a week

Detailed Answer:
Hi again
Do all exercises in three sets of 15-12-10 repetitions respectively.
Use wait of 5 kg only.
Exercise schedule
How can you do cardio when body is weak.
So initially follow this-
Day 1
Dumbell curls
Preachers curl
Hammer curls
Push ups
will take about 30 minutes
followed by 15 minutes of running on treadmill at the lightest mode amnd minimum elevation.

Day 2 rest

Day 3
Push ups
Plank postion
Incined dumbell press
Inclined dumbll fly
Followed by 15 minutes of cycling.

Day 4 rest
Day 5-
15 minutes on tread mill
followed by 10 minutes of rest
Again 15 minutes of cycling.

Day 6-
Abdominal crunches followed by 30 minutes of tread mill

Day 7 rest

Contact me again after day 7.

Too much of anything is good for nothing
Healthy diet consist of fats protein and carbohydrate combination.
Totally restricting something have serious effects on body.
Take less then 10% saturated and 15% unsaturated fat daily(20% of food).

Prelipid is a blend of
Black pepper extract 10 MG+Folic acid 100 MCG+Grape seed extract 10 MG+Red yeast rice 325 MG+Vitamin B3 7 MG they are al natural antioxidants and are veryu effective in lowering bad cholesterol levels.As they are all natural antioxidants it hasno side effect.

Your cholestrol is high ,TG is borderline elevated,HDL is low(good fat),LDL is elevated.
No excuses go to gym start working out at least 4 days a weekfor 45 minutes.
After 30 days of dedicated work out repeat lipid profile and see wonders.

Follow up answer.

Detailed Answer:
Hi again,
Prelipid is effective oNly with proper life style changes.
Don't worry go for proper work out.
I have given you a very easy schedule but will be very effective if followed properly.

P.S- don't try to do all these things at home or walking and jogging in garden.
A schedule is necesssary and you have to go to gym for that.

My best wishes and try to stay away from medicines.
Medical therapy should be last resort not the first option.
