In brief: Heart disease risk

You mention normal sugar, but your profile says type 2 diabetes and hyperlipidemia.
Are you already on medications for diabetes, lipids? By themselves, those numbers are not bad, but if you have diabetes and other conditions, you are in a higher risk category. Discuss this with your doctor who can consider the whole picture.
