Depends: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, your triglyceride is higher than desired. If you are overweight. losing weight will help. Wish you good health!
