Your levels of fasting blood sugar are normal however PP levels are a bit high.
You continue the same dose of medicine but should reduce your calorie intake and start doing regular exercises.
The goal of your cholesterol levels should be
Total cholesterol should be below 180
Your LDL levels should be below 80
Triglyceride levels shoul be below 150
BP should be below 120/80 mm of Hg
The best non veg diet for you is o take steamed or frilled fish.
There is no need to add any sugar as it may derail your normalisation programme.
Develop the habit of taking your tea and milk without sugar and avoid colas.
