Dear, hello.
It is good that you are able to follow your drug regime and your lipid profile is now fully controlled.
Along with medication, diet control is very important in maintaining the lipid profile in normal range.
Regular daily exercise helps to burn out extra fat which starts depositing in the body.
Donot stop your medicines abruptly.You have not mentioned which medicine you are taking. Please mention the name of medicine.
Also repeat your lipid profile every 3 months. Also have your Thyroid profile done.
