Are my cholesterol numbers high? Do I need medications? Will they be chronic? All my previous records were at the desirable levels Total Chol: 210.36 HDL: 48.72 LDL: 139.6 Triglycerides: 162.1 Height: 5'6" Weight: 167.6 lbs PBF: 36.2%

Yes. The triglycerides are slightly high but would not treat alone,HdL good-the higher the better and the LDL mild to moderately high.Before meds diet and exercise-decrease polysaturated fats,hydrogenate fats.Increase mono-saturated and polyunsaturated fats and get rechecked in 3-4 months.
