no it is not in normal range, this is higher Level then normal. medication includes lipid lowering drug likes statins(atorvastatin or rivastatin) 20 mg once a day in night. but along with diet modification for better action. lipid lowering drug with diet modification are treatment for huperlipiedemia. you should stop eating lipid rich food.
