Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

From your lipid profile test, variables like your total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL (low-density lipoprotein), and HDL (high-density lipoprotein) are slightly either increased or decreased.

All this is a reflection of being obese. But for now, I will recommend exercise and diet. You need lifestyle modification. No medications are needed.

Start gym and get a trainer. So he can start you on a training exercise of at least three times a week.

Start dieting, eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grain rice, etc. Eat and drink healthy for a better life.

It would be best if you could get a nutritionist to make a diet plan for you.

Best regards.
