Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing in.
I am a qualified and certified cardiologist. I read your question with diligence.
You have a point. However it is upto blood thinner point you are correct. Though Ecospirin is prescription drug you can take Dispirin break it into half and take after meals (never empty stomach).
As drugs against Cholesterol and Diabetes the other two risk factors in India can not be prescribed without screening it is better to get Fasting Blood Sugar and Lipid Profile done and if abnormal get the drug(s) prescribed. That is safer approach for anti cholesterol drug any of the statins can result in abnormal liver tests in miniscule of patients therefore taking under supervision is fine.
Live a healthy stress free life; maintain an ideal body weight for your height and do moderate exercise say brisk walking for 40 minutes a day. Do not eat saturated fat take plenty of boiled vegetables and fruits. With these measures you shall succeed in keeping cardiologist away. Good Luck.



If there is further query which you might have I will be most happy to answer. Good Luck.
Regards
With Best Wishes:

Thanks for writing back.
Regular aspirin tablet usually dispensed as Dispirin is 325 mg, I have suggested half of this after meals once a day. So total daily dose is about 160 mg.
Thank you for asking question from WWW.WWWW.WW

I am 61 years, 163 Cm, 70 kg. Angioplasty was done in 2005 and due stent problem again in 2011. I take statins (10 mg once a day) since 2005. It has raised my SGOT to 57 which I know at the moment is not alarming. I think I cannot stop taking statins. Is there a way to decrease my SGOT values or at least arrest to present values?
