Brief Answer:
Tab Crestor 10 mg once at night time before going to bed

Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir ,
The safest statin to take is rosuvastatin and the best brand for the same is Crestor , which is now available in XXXXXXX . The alternatives from XXXXXXX subsidies are Rosuvas / Rozavel.
Y we are starting with a lower dose ?
As you don't have an urgent risk and hence we can titrate the dose upwards if needed after 3 months and at the same time see how your body tolerates the medication .
The side effects you may watch for is muscle ache . After 3 months do Sgpt / cpk along with lipid profile.

I would recommend that you take omega 3 capsules , It available Otc as sea cod capsules 1 gm , 2 tab a day . This will help decreasing your triglycerides and at the same time it's anti oxidant effect helps to decrease the risk because of your smoking .

45 min of aerobic exercise a day .
Follow the diet plan in your health check up .

Consider doing yearly TMT .

For sleep study , the facilities are available in major labs and if you are apprehensive and unable to get sleep in hospital. The same can be arranged at your home at practically no extra costs .Though as I said you may get it done if you have risk factors for the same and there is no urgency.

Regards Dr. Mody
