Detailed Answer:
Dear sir
You have high triglycerides and low HDL. This combination is prevalent in diabetics, alcohol users, obese people, people who don't exercise, people who have thyroid and kidney disorder. Out of these diabetes, thyroid, kidney disease are ruled out by your reports. Refrain from alcohol. Maintain ideal body weight with body mass index of 23. Do daily exercise like brisk walk for about 45 minutes. Too much reliance on carbohydrates in diet like rice or cereals also lead to high triglycerides. Take a balance diet and may have opinion of dietitian. Avoid sweets and fried food.
If you have definity left smoking, this lipid profile do not warrant any medications.
You should adopt healthy diet and life style and repeat lipid profile after 12 weeks.
Feel free to discuss further.
Sincerely
Sukhvinder

Detailed Answer:
Nope sir
Not at all. I wrote so in last answer. This lipid profile does not require any medication as of now. Your medication is life style and diet modification. Please do not restart smoking.

RE adverse effects of Stains.....Male age 78 . taking 80 mgm Provachol. Recent chol esterol lab result,,
fasting, 163. LDL 106, HDL 35. How is it known if the Provacol contributes to the 163 total chol ... if it would be much higher if Provacho l was decreased ?? Obviously by trying it ? also while the total is good, the need to
increase the HDL and lower the LDL(?) seems obvious. How is that best done?? Allso what are the typical
side effect of Provachol??
Hope I am clear with the questions..Awaiting an answer.
