High cholesterol levels. Taking medication for GERD. Are these related? - Online Doctor Chats
Good Evening Doc
How can I help you?
Cardiac Risk Factor shows 6.8
May I know the cholesterol value?
L.D.L is 144
Tab name is PAN-D
my doubt is can because of this cholestrol can increase
i was on fast for 50 days and no non-veg and took fast one time a day
and previous cholestrol my Sr. Cholestrol was 192 and cardiac risk factor was 6.1
So can this medication increase cholesterol
Pantaprazole cannot increase cholesterol levels.
As you said, the chest pain could be due to GERD.
i took an ECG also which was normal
so do i need to worry regarding anything
am taking this PAN-D tab but am not getting any relaxation in Chest Pain..
Pain is in both right and left side of chest
so after seeing today's cholesterol report am worried
No. To me you are looking fine. You need not worry about the cholesterol levels. If you are not getting better with Pan- d, you may need to change the medication after consulting with your treating doctor.
Since your ECG was fine, if the pain is persisting , you can go for a treadmill test to confirm that the pain is not due to heart problems.
You can do the following to improve your cholesterol levels.
okies..the pain is both left and right side.. but most of time its near to the heart area
1. Regular exercise- at least 45 minutes a day.
2. Reduce oil intake.
3. reduce non-veg food to once in a week.
Omega-3 fatty acid is available as pharmacy preparation in the pharmacies.
Have you understood all my suggestions?
yes.. any remediation to get rid of this GERD as soon possible doc
It can be decided only by a gastroenterologist, after an endoscopic examination.
this pain is giving lot of discomfort to me
You should avoid having spicy and oily food.
Take your meals at regular times.
ya..am following same doc
but its going to be a week now.. not getting from this pain
And every 2 hours, you should have snacks to avoid complete emptying of the stomach.
GERD takes a long time to resolve.
Only way is to stick to the plan and follow the medications regularly.
so doc do u suggest me to take this treadmill test to be sure
because d area near my heart gives pain..
You can take the test, to make it sure.
and the pain is not regular one
it keeps on coming n going
You can do the test.
