You have not mentioned whether u are hypertensive and diabetic or not and the current medications you are taking for fever...Symptoms along with fever are not mentioned...In the blood tests , WBC count is not it is possible you might be having kind of infection and so u are getting fever..Antibiotic course might lay of fever...
Regarding your lipid profile, It is definitely abnormal, with cholesterol , And triglycerides being raised, there is no mention of LDL cholesterol which is bad one....Though the Chole to HDL chole ratio is normal i. e. 5.4 you should be taking statin therapy to lower your Bad cholesterol....and keep watch on Lipid profile every six months...
Thank u...
