Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well looking into your query I will like to tell you that your lipid profile is quite deranged and you will require the medicine for it . You can try a different salt namely Rosuvastatin . If you are able to tolerate it , its very good otherwise then other drugs like fenofibrate etc. will need to be tried.

You should also exercise at least half an hour 5 days a week and avoid saturated fats to the XXXXXXX

Take care.

Dr. Shruti
