Welcome to Healthcaremagic.
Hi, I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern.
Your Triglycerides are extremely high and they require treatment. You would need to be started on a combination of Atorvastatin and Fenofibrate.
Life style changes are warranted along with this as medicines ca be later discontinued and life style changes can be adopted for natural control for cholesterol.
I would advise you to:
1.Reduce your weight.
2.Avoid Fatty food in diet.
3.To consume potato, rice, oil, ghee, sweets, carbonated beverages in moderated amount only.
4. Avoid alcohol and smoking in case you do.
Get your lipid profile repeated after 1 month and write back to me with reports.
This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you still have any other query, you may please ask me.
Dr Anshul Varshney , MD
Thanks for the advice ..
I am so much worried now. As suggested by you , please confirm the below details:
Atorvastation: To be taken daily ? Dosage ? mg? to be taken for how many days?
Fenofibrate: To be taken daily ? Dosage ? mg? to be taken for how many days?
Dear XXXXXXX , the combination of Atorvastatin and Fenofibrate is available in market with a Fixed dose combination name Atorlip-F 10.
This medicine should be taken daily in night time for atleast 3 months with life style changes as discussed.
I would recommend you to take the medicine under guidance of your family doctor as this is a prescription medicine.
