In brief: Higher than desired

Both your cholesterol and triglycerides are higher than desired.
It would be a good idea to see your doctor for an evaluation of all risk factors. In the meantime, reduce your intake of saturated fats and carbohydrates, if you smoke - quit; if you are overweight - lose some weight. Start exercising with gradually unceasing vigour.
