Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I recommend performing an ambulatory 24-48 hours ECG (electrocardiogram) monitoring to investigate for any cardiac arrhythmia. I would also recommend performing complete blood count and blood electrolytes for any possible imbalance, which could trigger ectopic heartbeats. Regarding your blood lipid profile, I would recommend trying to modify your diet, avoid fatty food or sugar and take a lot of omega fatty acids (fish, fish oil, olive oil, walnuts, etc.). I would also recommend taking a statin, considering your blood lipid profile. Atorvastatin 20 mg daily for a month would help improve your blood lipid profile.

Hope to have been helpful! If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to ask me again.
