Brief Answer:
Repeat the lipid profile

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for writing back,

I have seen the attached test results.

The cholesterol is marginally raised.

There is no treatment needed for the above derangement. A low fat diet would suffice.

I suggest you to get complete lipid profile test done . This will give insight into whether or not you need treatment with medications.
