Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX

Good to hear from you again and am happy to see the reports.

The whole lipid profile report is normal and there is nothing you should be concerned or worried for. Just continue to encourage your parents to follow healthy lifestyle habits and eating habits as i told you earlier. i.e

1. Start going for daily brisk morning walks for 35 mins a day for 5 days a week.

2. Avoid extra sugars and fried food specially the junk food.

3. Include good amount of fresh fruits and vegetables.

4. Drink lots of water

5. NO SMOKING (IF ITS THERE)

I hope this information will relieve your worries. In future if you want opinion from me then kindly write my name in the beginning of your question as TO DR XXXXXXX PARTAP.

Kind Regards
Dr XXXXXXX Partap
