Hi doctor,

I had done blood test in fasting and my result is as follows:

Plasma glucose fasting 98 mg/dl, lipid profile tests (serum), cholesterol (serum) 288 mg/dL, triglycerides (serum) 242 mg/dL, HDL C (serum) 36 mg/dL, LDL- C (serum) 220 mg/dL, VLDL- C (serum) 32 mg/dL, CHOL/HDL ratio 8.0, LDL/HDL ratio 6.1.

Please advise.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Yes, lipid profile is very much deranged especially LDL cholesterol part which is bad cholesterol. The reason for this is likely genetic with some component of lifestyle. This will need regular monitoring, and control should be strict in order to avoid the development of heart blockages. So, you need to start medicines as well as have a healthy lifestyle.

You need to have a healthy lifestyle like avoiding fatty oily and a high-calorie diet. Have regular exercises like brisk walking or running according to capacity. You should also get your BP checked. And if you have a family history of heart diseases or any chest pain then also other routine tests like echo and TMT should be obtained.

In medicine, you should get prescribed tablet Rosulip 10 mg once daily bedtime after meals for eight weeks if tolerated well without side-effects. Repeat lipid profile after eight weeks to see the response.
