Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Do you have diabetes, hypertension, family history of a heart attack in young age? Do you have deranged kidney function? Answers to these questions if not, it is critical to decide medicine. If these are not present, then medication is not required at this stage. Only lifestyle and dietary modification are necessary. Reduce saturated fats and trans fats (ghee, butter) in diet, reduce red meat, consume more dry fruits, and vegetables. Avoid more than one egg yolk per day. Do regular exercise, such as jogging, cycling, brisk walk, etc. Avoid a sedentary lifestyle after three months repeat fasting lipid profile.
