Your total cholesterol,LDL (bad cholesterol) are high.
Normal range-
Total cholesterol - 5.0 mmol/L or lower.
LDL cholesterol -3mmol/L or lower
HDL level above 1 mmol/L
Triglyceride level under 1.7 mmol/L
LDL of 2mmol/L or lower
The ratio of total cholesterol to HDL should be below 4.
And your HDL-C and chol/hdl ratio are very good.

The best way to lower cholesterol is to take less fat and oil in diet.
The omega3 fatty acids are useful in food adjuvant to lower cholesterol.

You should also take daily exercise as permitted by your body with which you feel comfortable.The daily exercise of 30-60 minutes is usually sufficient.

You need to lower your total cholesterol and LDL.
