Thanks for writing to HCM

Your father-in-law needs proper investigation before starting any medicine.
It includes routine hemogram, renal function test, uric acid level,liver function test and lipid profile,E.C.G. Firstly he should be thoroughly examined by a physician. All systems should be screened. Ultrasound of abdomen should also be done. X-ray knee joints should also be done.
so better you contact your physician.
