Dear Mam Thank you for sharing your reports with me They show that your blood cholesterol level is high which means you have hypercholestrolemia. For this, you should make serious lifestyle modification like healthy diet containing lots of fruits and vegetables, plenty of water. Avoid fried, processed foods. Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day for at least 5 days in a week. Your IgE level is also high, which is usually raised in allergic or parasitic infections.
