Thanks for posting your query.

I understand your health concern. Let me help you to the best of my knowledge.

For your age, you have quite a few abnormalities. All components of your lipid profile are abnormal.

You seem to be overweight, to comment further on your BMI (Body Mass Index) I need the details of your height, waist circumference and hip circumference, if you know.

Your present prescriptions are quite adequate. I do not know if your lipid profile was any different previously that prompted previous prescription.

Rosuvas F helps in decreasing the triglycerides (TG) and to an extent in increasing HDL. Storvas EZ causes decrease in LDL and total cholesterol.

Rosuvas F is better for you with no additional side effects on the existing NAFLD (Non diet and exercise plays a very important role in the long run. Aggressive lifestyle modification focused on weight reduction and increased physical activity is very important for you.

I would also be interested to know about your blood pressure reading and fasting blood sugar value.

I hope this has been useful to you.

Please do write back for further discussion on this.

I wish you good health.
