Thank you for posting your query on HCM
After having a look at your lipid profile
(cholesterol, LDL, HDL
, triglycerides) and liver
function tests, I conclude that your cholesterol and LDL (bad cholesterol) are on higher side.
Your liver function tests are normal. You need not do anything for that.
However, a high cholesterol
and high LDL is slightly worrisome. Initially life style modification is all that you require.
That includes a regular exercise, low intake of saturated fats, increased intake of unsaturated fats and to maintain ideal body weight.
Saturated fats which are harmful include food cooked in coconut oil, palm oil, red meat etc.
Unsaturated fat include safflower oil, sunflower oil, soyabean oil etc.
Fish is a rich source of unsaturated fats especially omega-3
which is very good for your lipid profile and your heart.
However, consult your doctor and get your lipid profile done regularly.
Medications will be started only when life style modification measures fail.
Thanks and take care
