Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
I am Dr Mittal.
I have read the query.
I think I can help you.

First, the following tests are needed.
CBC , KFT with electrolytes, USG abdomen, HbA1C, lipid profile, vitamin D, urine routine and microalbumin, echocardiography, and due test for retinopathy.

ComING to the sugars.
I think the levels are OK.
they are not too tightly controlled.
Too tight a control increases the cardiac risk and should be avoided.
Still I feel that the glycomet dose can be hiked mildly.
I am assuming that you are already controlling your diet, and follow regular exercises.

I have tried to make it as simple as possible.
Feel free to contact me for any clarification.
Best of luck, Dr Mittal

For the past 4 days, my blood pressure has been running anywhere from 130/95 to 120/102. My blood pressure is usually normal (typically 120/78 or so). I have high cholesterol and a family history of heart disease & am 51. What I don t understand is the numbers being close together. My last reading was 119/102.

I tested my lipid profile and hemoglobin test and eeg[color doppler] test. Av is slightly enlarged. In lipid profile triglyceride is 345 and cholesterol is 240. I checked my diet and took medicines. The problem is less but not totally cured.

I am a 62-year old healthy female who takes Pravastatin. My cholesterol level was 249 before being put on that drug, and I have no other health issues--not overweight, no hypertension, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, etc. Get plenty of exercise, have a good diet of protein and not many carbs or surgar. Triglycerides, etc. are fine, and my total cholesterol has dropped to 150 while on the drug. Recently a routine blood test revealed that my blood glucose level had risen to 104 after being 94 a year ago. Could this be due to the Pravastatin, and is there anything I should do?
