Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Your cholesterol levels are not very high. If you dont have any other risk factors for heart disease like high B.P. or diabetes then you can lower your chl levels by diet control- decreasing fatty foods and restricting yourself to healthy foods. Also repeat these tests on an empty stomach. You might get normal levels.
