Hello doctor,

I am 35-year-old male. My weight is 77 kg and height is 5 feet 6 inches. What is a skipping pulse? Is it blockage in the heart or not? My test reports is as follows, Cholesterol : 247, Triglycerides : 283, Hdl : 43, Ldl : 149, VLDL : 57, Non-Hdl cholesterol : 204, Lipoprotein a : 94, HS-CRP : 8, Sugar fasting : 90, and BP mostly : 130 / 85.

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.
