Hi Ravindra,
Thanks for writing your query.

The readings you have mentioned are not significantly deranged.
They can be improved by following :-
1. Using refined oil while cooking of food.
2. Doing aerobic exercises.
3. Supplementation of Omega-3 fatty acids.
4. Avoidance of fatty foods.

I hope this is helpful to you.

Hi Ravindra,
I don't think you need to be put on drugs for the deranged lipid profile. there are two things which you should do to avoid drugs.
Keep your body fit by regular exercise. Daily brisk walking is good. Avoid all fatty food like cheese, butter, ghee, oily food, fried food. Use vegetables mostly in the diet.
Within six months time you will see the difference!

Internal Medicine Specialist Dr. Akhilesh Dubey's  Response
Welcome to HCM,
In lipid profile Total cholesterol and Serum triglyceride are also tested along with LDL and HDL,
Normal values are.
LDL: 60 to 130 mg/DL, HDL: greater than 40 mg/dL, Total cholesterol: less than 200 mg/dL Triglycerides: 10 to 150 mg/DL, VLDL: 2 to 38 mg/dL
Your LDL is slightly more and HDL is less which is good cholesterol.
Please take care of diet taking
Take up exercise like brisk walking for 45 to 60 min daily to increase HDL level. Exercise has many other benefits too.
Hope this information helps.
Please take care
Good Luck
Dr. Akhilesh Dubey M.D.
