Detailed Answer:
You are having hyperlipidemia, your cholesterol and triglycerides both are deranged. However, there is not a matter of worry, but we should take necessary action.
It's certainly need intervention, both lifestyle changes and medicine. I would advise that you should get medicine like tab Atorvastatin 10 mg bedtime prescribed, which is statin class of drug and will reduce both cholesterol and triglycerides. LDL cholesterol is 173 and is less likely to be controlled only with lifestyle measures. Along with medicine you should have a healthy lifestyle like avoiding fatty, oily and high calorie diet. Have low salt diet and monitor blood pressure regularly and bp should not be persistently more than 140/90 mmhg. Regular exercises like brisk walking, jogging according your capacity atleast 30 min a day and 5 days a week. Lots of green leafy vegetables, fruits, fish once or twice a week, avoid meat. Avoid smoking and alcohol if any. There shouldn't abdominal fat deposition or obesity. Repeat Lipid profile after 3 months.
Next thing, do you have any other risk factors like high blood pressure, deranged sugar, obesity, do you snore, family history of heart disease, sedentary lifestyle, smoking, alcohol etc. If yes we need to address them aggressively as well.
Regarding your heart rate, I guess the mentioned heart was resting heart rate, although it's within normal limits but on a higher side. Various causes could be anxiety, smoking, obesity and snoring leading obstructive sleep apnea, hyperthyroidism etc.
so need to get sugars tested both fasting and post lunch, thyroid test, HsCRP levels for prediction of heart disease risk. Hope this helps you. So get back with information, reports and if you have any doubts.
