Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that you are having dyslipidemia.
Regular exercise and dietary control will help in controlling the lipid levels.

You should also get your blod tested for Thyroid profile.

Following precautions will be helpful :-
1. Avoid oily foods.
2. Avoid excess of sweets/carbohydrates, as excess of it gets deposited as fat in the body.
3. Avoid alocohol/smoking, if any.
4. Use refined oils for cooking.
5. Fibre rich foods/fruits and salads will be helpful.
6. Eat daily lentils/pulses.
7. Garlic has an important role in decreasing the cholesterol.

The medicine you have mentioned i.e. Tonact TG contains Atorvastatin and Fenofibrate.
It is beneficial in treating dyslipidemia. You can take this medicine, if it is prescribed by your doctor.

I hope this is helpful to you.
