Hi,

Thanks for posting your query.

I have gone through your history.

In view of rheumatic heart disease you have to take penicillin either in injection form or tablets till the age of 40 years. Hence, I request you take the medicines.

Dear friend,

Thanks for the query.

You have to continue the oral tablets.

Echo has to be repeated every year to assess the mitral valve.

At present it is okay, you do not need any surgery.

Continue oral penicillin and yearly echo.

I do not know what oral penicillin is available in your country and the dosage. You will have to consult the local doctor.

Thanking you,
Dr Ravindra setty.

Dear XXXXXXX,

I have not seen the urine report. You have a feature to upload the reports / image by yourself at the right side of the query page, please utilize that so that I can answer your queries better.

Regarding triglycerides, you need to keep it below 150.

You have to reduce carbohydrates like rice and milk products.

At present you do not need medication, only diet modification will suffice.

I have reviewed your urine report and it is within normal limits.

As for the high triglycerides you need to change your diet. Reduce rice and rice based food items.
