I am 34 years old and weigh about 96 kg.
My latest lipid profile shows
Triglycerides - 398 mg/dl.
HDL - 27 mg/dl.
LDL - 96 mg/dl.
Total - 175 mg/dl.
Please advise what to do? Any immediate medication I need to start? Which doctor to consult? Any other tests to be done?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I can understand your concern. According to your statement, you have increased triglyceride levels and low HDL (high dentisity lipoprotein) levels. Your HDL has been varying from 24 to 38 for the last three years and your current medication is Colred powder which is a nutritional supplement used for dyslipidemia.
For your high TG (triglycerides) level you can start Fenofibrate (trade names Finate, Fenofibrate 200 mg) at night. You can also take Omega-3 fatty acid (trade name Beneficial, Bree C, Carmax) for increasing your HDL.
You should avoid oily and fatty foods. Continue your current medication with Fenofibrate and Omega-3 fatty acid. After three months, repeat your fasting lipid profile.
Thank you doctor,
I used to take that medication six months ago. I am not currently taking it. A few more clarifications, please.
Can I continue taking Colred along with the medications you suggested? You have sent multiple medications and anyone can be taken? Do you see any risk currently, for which I need to visit a doctor personally?
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
According to your query, you can take Colored along with other medications. I have sent you the same group of medications with two or three trade names for your benefit.
For your high TG level, you can take capsule Finate 200 mg at night. In the same way for your low HDL level, you can take Bree C once daily.
Your TG level is high according to your age. For that reason, you can visit a doctor. But I think your visiting doctor will also prescribe these types of medications that I have already suggested to you.
