Hi and thanks for the query,

Your total cholesterol is in borderline high range that is it is just above what is to be considered normal that is 200. Luckily your LDL and HDL is optimal. this is the the number which can be treated with just life style modifications that is regular exercise and low fat diet. Rest is normal.
