Detailed Answer:

Thank you for posting in XXXXXXX

I saw your reports.

You are responding very well to the treatment.

Hepatomegaly means enlargement of liver.As it is 16.2 cms only,it is not of much cocern.

Serum creatinine is 1.46 which is just near to the normal upper limit.No treatment is necessary for this.
But,get another test after 2 weeks.

Sinus bradycardia is normal in healthy,exercised people.Irregular heart beat is a described complication of losartan.please consult a cardiologist and get his advice.

Hope i answered your query.

Further questions will be clarified.

Wish you good health
