Hi, thank you for posting at Health Care Magic.

I think all this problems are caused by smoking, overweight and his sedentary life. Smoking intervenes in fat metabolism, by increasing cholesterol, trygliceride and LDL(responsible for incomplete bundle branch block and hypertension).
Your husband need lipid test, INR(a test of blood clotting) and glycemi test.
You husband will need another treatment in base of results. He should do those test as soon as possible.

Take Care of your husband.
