Brief Answer:
The results are within normal limits.

Detailed Answer:
Good afternoon.
I appreciate your concern for your beloved uncle.

After having gone through the uploaded reports of ECG, Echocardiography and the lipids profile I am of the opinion that the results are within the normal limits.
So, there is nothing to worry about it.
Relax, continue your routine activity, take the prescribed tablets for anxiety.

Hope to have answered your query.

Best regards.

Brief Answer:
Lifestyle modification and daily exercise will help.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back.
Thanks for your compliments.

The HDL cholesterol ("good cholesterol") reduces the deposition of fat in the blood vessels can be increased by regular exercise and by avoiding smoking.

The level of LDL cholesterol can be well maintained by taking a vegetarian diet, poultry, fish, fruits, etc.

Last but not the least, try to avoid stress or stressful situation.

Wishing you best of your health.

I am 56 years old and had been relatively healthy throughout my life. 2 years ago I had a heart attack. I was given 3 drug eluting stents in the left side. I no longer smoke. I take the followings meds. apo-metoprolol 50mg per day, plavix 75mg per day, lipitor 60mg per day, novo-lisinopril 10mg per day, low dose aspirin 1 per day. i wear nitro-dur patches 0,4 & 0,2 but not every day. My issues are : I constantly feel & look bloated. My weight has gone from 155 to 185 but my eating habits haven t been altered drastically. I get hungry then after i eat my stomach gets very upset. My bowel movements are irregular & usually runny. I tire very easily & generally feel lethargic. I often get chest pains and/or heart burn. Because of the aforementioned my mental state isn t the best either. I was an upbeat, active person & now I just try to get the day in. I ve asked my doctor many times if my meds are the issue & he says I must take them to continue living. A couple of times I didn t take all these pills for a few days & noticed a remarkable improvement. I don t really want to die prematurely but I am sick & tired of being sick & tired. Any assistance provided would be greatly appreciated. thanks
