Thanks for writing in to us.
This is Dr.Riyanka and I am glad to be helping you with your query.
Since only a lipid profile reading is given and no question has been asked i shall interpret the readings for you. Also kindly provide your age and gender.
As per the report your blood cholesterol levels are normal.
However, tryglyceride levels are very high (772mg%) and also very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) level (154.4mg%) is also very high.
Regarding this kindly consult a cardiologist as he/she will put you on medications as high tryglyceride and VLDL levels may lead to cardiovascular diseases. Also he may advise you to repeat lipid profile and some other non invasive cardiovascular tests to check the status of your heart.
HDL (high density lipoprotein) are good for the heart and you can increase their levels by eating walnuts and almonds in moderation.
Also kindly avoid taking too much of fatty diet or carbohydrates. eat more of salads and citrous fruits.
Have a brisk walk regularly and do moderate excercise .
Hope this answers your query. Don't worry .
Do write back if you have any further doubts.
