Cardiologist 's  Response
in absence of diabetes and hypertension ,and other risk factor
your husband all lipids level are at accepted level but on higher side of normal limits except triglyceride
and SGPT is also borderline elevated , i think not a cause of major worry but you need to start precaution in form of life style modification
stop taking alcohol in any form if he is taking
quit tobacco use in any form if he using
avoid sweets , fatty foods like fried and oily foods,red meat, and fruits like banana, mango , custard apple ,and ice cream
regular walking
repeat LFT after 6 week and lipid test after 3 month
i think with life style modification he will be alright
take care
