Welcome to HCM.

Your Lipid profile and fasting blood sugar levels are absolutely normal.
You can stop using Rosuvastatin 5 mg . But before stopping it completely, you need to see whether your body can maintain the cholesterol levels with in normal range without the medicine. For that you need give it a trial.

Stop using medicines for a period of 10 days and then repeat the lipid profile. If the result comes out normal , you can stop taking the medicine completely. I dont think you need to continue the medicine, as you are maintaining a healthy life style. Keep it going and enjoy the life to the fullest.

Wish you a healthy life.

You are taking Rosuvastatin 5 mg for last 2 months.
Your current cholesterol levels are normal and it maybe so because of Rosuvastatin.
I do not know your previous levels but right now it looks like they are under control because of Rosuvastatin.
Continue your exercises and try to include more fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet.

I would advise to continue taking the medicine if your previous cholesterol levels were high and you were asked to take Rosuvastatin to reduce the same.
If you still have doubts you should ask the same physician who asked you take it and he/she can tell after a thorough exam.
Take care.

hello.. your lipid profile is normal... when you stop the medication make sure your diet and exercise regime continues as you are prone to having an abnormal lipid profile.. make sure you eat high fiber foods like fruits, nuts, salads, sprouts, oats etc.. avoid fried, egg yolks, red meat and processed foods.. drink lot of water.. rest well.. take fish oil capsules daily to keep cholesterol under check..
