Thanks for query,
Your all blood reports are within normal limits,
There is fatty liver changes,
The medicines you are taking is very proper,but as you are taking since long you may discontinue for some time and if there is no problem you stop.
if you have problem again you start taking Omeprazole.
ok and bye.

welcome to HCM
from your pathology report it seems that you are suffering from fatty liver
your hdl level is decreased and also cholesterol level is borderline high.
so try to reduce cholesterol and increase your hdl by regular exercise and diet modification.
as per your acidity problem , you can take the tab ( omez)you are now continuing.
but simultaneously modify your lifestyle.
avoid smoking and alcohol.
take small an frequent foods.
avoid stress.
if you are a alcoholic please stop it.
if after all these modifications there is no improvement try to find ourt the cause of
chronic acidity by consulting a doctor
wish you a good health
