Hi there, This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
I understand your concerns.
Your total cholesterol is mildly elevated.
This should be below 5.4
so, no that high to be concerned about.
High HDL is considered good and protective against bad LDL and also may be reducing risk from smoking.
But smoking for long time may reduce your HDL level.
So, you need to avoid smoking.
You made good changes to your diet.
You should see further improvement over time.
But if you quit smoking tat will be the best thing for improvement.
In summary, this is not concerning.
