Diet / Exercise / then drugs
Dear Mr XXXXXXX
Welcome to Health Care Magic
are slightly high
There are subdivisions of cholesterol – LDL, HDL, non-HDL and so on.
LDL (& non-HDL) is bad cholesterol – lower, the better.
HDL is good cholesterol – higher, the better.
In the absence of any other risk factor 100 is ideal for LDL-C. In the presence of ischemia
, 70 should be the aim.
Keep your weight to normal / even a little less
, if you are a smoker
Do regular EXERCISE – say walking or jogging - 30 minutes a day / at least 5 days in a week. Isometric exercise
(like bull worker) is bad.
Healthy FOOD is a must. Avoid saturated fats – coconut oil, palm oil, butter, ghee, full cream milk...Avoid junk foods in particular – French fries have palm oil / Pizza has cheese / Indian sweets are made in ghee.../ Change to Poly-un-saturated oil – like sun flower oil. / Include Mono-un-saturated oil – Olive oil.
Repeat the test in 6 weeks.
Cholesterol can still be high, in spite of diet and exercise – you need drugs; Because it is also manufactured in the liver – and that is determined by heredity. Statin is the first choice. Some start it straight away – even with normal levels, even without problems (Primary Prophylaxis)
Your drug is appropriate
The side effects are minimal / usually muscle pain
- far outweighed by the benefits...
B-12 deficiency is common in vegetarians / the supplement (Mecobalamin) is OK
No interaction of your drugs with Tadalafil
Your BMI is in range / No cause for concern
Heartburns lasting one year needs investigation – see a Gastroenterologist 0 have an Endoscopy
It is great that you have the courage and motivation and came out of the Depression…
Wishing all well
