Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have enclosed the preventive blood test reports of my father. I seek your advice for the test report.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

According to the reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity), he has type 2 diabetes with dyslipidemia and iron deficiency anemia. All these can be managed with lifestyle modifications along with some drugs. I would advise daily brisk walking for 45 minutes at least six days a week, eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables and a diabetic diet. Avoid smoking and alcohol.

I suggest tablet Metformin 500 mg twice daily for two months, a tablet Rosuvas 20 mg (Rosuvastatin) once daily at night, and capsule Fefol Z (Iron) once daily for 15 days. Stop Fefol if there is gastric upset, but black stools and tongue are normal with Fefol administration. Consult your dad's specialist doctor, discuss with him or her, and take medicine with consent.

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor,

Kindly suggest about cholesterol level. Are those within acceptable limits?


Welcome back to icliniq.com.

No, the cholesterol level is marginally higher and can be controlled with the above measures.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
