LDL level 83, Triglycerideds 170., slightly overweight. Medication required? - Online Doctor Chats
Dr. xxxxxxxx here
need to start medication?
may i know your age please
No, it is not required
Do you know your BMI?
Do you know your weight and height?
May I know them?
weight 80...height 5 feet 11 inches
Your BMI is 24.6
However you do not need medications for the above levels
wht should be my ideal weight
Your ideal weight should be 71
Medical recommendation is between 62 to 81
Around 75 should be fine
Is there any history of medical illnesses in you?
a little hypertensive
came up to 140/90
You should do some lifestyle modifications
That will help you
Try this for 6 months and repeat the test
If still no improvement, you may go in for medications
i am doing bodybuilding also...
and i think it is muscle weight...not my fat...
That is good
in that case, what u say abt my BMI....is it ok?
The new WHO guidelines say that a BMI of more than 22.9 is overweight
Earlier it used to be 25
So, most of us fall into overweight range
Means we should start working out our lifestyle when the BMI crossed 22.9
So, continue to work out and eat a healthy food
Your values should return to normal
and one more thing doctor...
HDL is under some risk...rite?
HDL is also called good cholesterol
It should be above 40
It should be below 200
Last month, I started some multivitamin + antioxidant tablet....but still continuing in the same, 23 range
May be you need a diet change
Why don't you go for diet consultation with our dietitian?
today i made an appointment with the dietitian...
She should help you out with the diet changes
should i tell the dietitian the complete details, like bodybuilding also....?
Yes, you should tell her all the details
ok...doctor....will do that...
Thank you too
Thanks for your help...
Pleasure is mine
Is there anything else I may help you with?
Bye for now
