Hi my husband is taking stanlip from last 1 month, his tryglycerides now is 190, which was initially 500 when he started the medicine,

He was taking 1 tab of stanlip 145 in a day
During that time he lost about 5 kgs of weight as well, his weight is now 60 kgs and height is 5.7
Now should the dose of stanlip be reduced or should it be stopped, or it is to be taken life long please suggest
My husbands age is 33

My 2 yr child has been diagnosed with an enlarged liver and we are doing test at the hospital. First LFT had AST and ALT at 140 and 163, 5 days later it was 138 and 155 while Total Bilirubin was 1.3. Tested negative for all the Hepatitis tests. CT scan did not reveal any masses. He has pain while passing stool and is OK once that is done. Is on a fat free diet with lots of veggies and fresh fruit juice. After 7 days of the last LFT there was another LFT done for which the results will be out tomorrow. At this moment there is no yellowing of skin or eyes but he does seem sluggish. What could the problem potentially be? Thank You for your answer in advance!!!
