Your liver function tests values are increased it could be due fatty liver(due to high cholesterol)
If I were your treating doctor I would suggest you changes in your life style and diet.And I will repeat the tests after 3 months.If still you have high levels after changing your life stlye and food habits then I would go for medical treatment and I would start Stains(lipid lowering drugs).

I would like to give some suggestions to you.:
You need change your lifestyle and diet habits.
Physical exercise utmost important to reduce cholesterol.If you are over weight you need to do vigorous physical exercises at least 30 minute a day.

Brief Answer:
High Uric acid

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome again.

I have gone through your reports.
Your kidney function test are absolutely normal except uric acid level is high. It could be due to over weight or alcohol related or due to dietary factors. Your treating doctor can plan its action based on the cause suspected.

Your TIBC (Total iron binding capacity) and RBC Distribution Width (RDW-SD) are high it means your iron stores in your body started decreasing. You need not worry about it. I start iron rich food and iron supplements to correct those parameters.

Absolute lymphocyte count (ALC) is slightly increased it means mild infection in your body.

Your fasting blood glucose within normal limit. However I would suggest you also get Post prandial blood glucose test done.

According your weight and height your BMI is 27 it indicates you are over weight.
I would suggest you join in a gym and do exercises with instruction of gym master. Until then aerobics will be the choice.

Hope I have answered your query.
I f you have any queries I will be happy to help you.
