I have sugar and high cholesterol levels. so, please give me advise and medicine.?
High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines . for diabetes you can take anti diabetes medicines by doctor.pl. tell us your reports.

Sertaline belongs to ssri (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) group of medicines, given for anxiety, depression, compulsive disorders and other medical conditions to soothe the nerves temporarily. If you have taken only 1 accidently, wait for effect to wean off gradually, take more water and ors & do not take fats or heavy food. Gradually medicine will be out of system but you will have to bear the side effects. You can take a tablet of antiallergic phenargan if anxiety persists. Serotonin is good mood hormone. Eat cashew nuts which are naturally rich in this hormone.

Agnesji, I am not aware if hypothyroidism increases blood pressure. Your blood pressure particularly systolic seems to be varying quite a bit, it is not good. Appropriate medication should settle it. Ideally on treatment bp should 130 / 80 mm hg, altering present drugs or adding some new compound should be able to help in reducing the systolic pressure. You also control hypothyroidism effectively (maintaining tsh between 3 to 4 milli units/ml). That will help in over all well being.

At 19, good to know that your basic reports like CBC and BP are normal. Excess heart beat can be due to thyroid and stressful life with multitasking, doing lots of work at a time. Get your eyes tested too along with total lipid profile, thyroid profile and ecg, stress test. Do write back with reports and your lifestyle as a student /working girl at 19. You are still a growing up teenager and you have got to do lots in life through education, degrees get back with reports.

Hello sir, my husband is 30 years old healthy lean person. I did his tests yesterday in which the cholesterol levels were high total cholesterol being in range of 299 ldl 77 triglycerides 800 vldl 160. Urine uric acid levels on little higher sides. He doesn't suffer from anything except planter fasciitis occasionally. He isn't on any medication. Normally I have all the dietary precautions at home. Does he need to start treatment immediately or we can give a try to exercise and dietary restrictions? Please reply Thanks

His cholesterol and triglycerides levels are pretty high. It could be familial, hopefully he doesn't drink much and smoke. Since you are already taking dietary precautions, he should be started on medications and daily exercise. The levels need to be repeated after 4 weeks to see response.
