Sir
My total cholesterol 224, HDL 41, LDL 158, VLDL 25, triglycerides 125. Want your opinion please.
I think you are hypertensive. Try to avoid fat and carbohydrates. Try to start statins (lipid lowering drugs) as per doctor prescription. Also start blood thinners as per doctors advise to avoid any blocks in coronary arteries.

Yes they have correlation to some extent but they are basically two separate things. And both have to be delt with separately. High LDL high cholesterol put you on a higher risk of atherosclerotic diseases and heart attacks especially if you have other is factors including hypertension diabetes or a history of smoking so I would advise you to continue blood pressure medication and to start taking statins which are cholesterol medications the dose of which depends upon your cholesterol levels also you need to start changing your dietary habits and include a regular physical exercise at least 45 minutes a day 5 days a week into your schedule nonetheless you have to stop taking fatty and junk food Once your cholesterol and blood pressure are well controlled and your lifestyle routine is set. You can slowly tapper and stop these medications good luck.

My gym trainer suggests me to take fat cutter Is it fine?
In ayurveda, Hypertension is referred to as Rakta Capa Vriddhi and it sees the vitiation of vata and pitta doshas as the main cause...take sarpgandha vati twice a day...yogendra ras...akik bhasm works very good in case of hypertension....avoid salty diet...oily food...lower your stress...do pranayama early morning....

I have high LDL cholesterol and know if you can suggest any homeopathic medicine.

BHMS

Increased cholesterol has to be addressed constitutionally. Take cholestrinum 6x 2 pills morning; It is better to meet a homeopathic doctor and take constitutional treatment. Take one teaspoon of flax seeds daily.

I am diabetic, having hypertension and heart disease, can I take thyronorm tablets.

I am diabetic, having hypertension and heart disease, can I take thyronorm tablets.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. To treat hypothyroidism only available drug is Levothyroxine tablets. Hence, if you have that condition, then it may be necessary to take Thyroxine tablets. But I can only give a proper yes or know based on actual TSH value, BP reading plus some details on the heart condition. Since nothing is mentioned, it is difficult to give any opinion. Thanks.

my mother had Brain clot and stroke what is it and what treatment & consequences are there. Currently admitted in hospital. suggestion required.?

MD - Pathology
General Physician, Amritsar
Brain clot obstructs blood supply to the part of brain that is being supplied blood by that particular blood vessel. This will impair functioning of part of body which is controlled by that part of brain. If blood clot is dissolved within 6 hours, there is no resultant deficit. If weakness or paralysis of any part occurs, it has to be treated with physiotherapy. If there is lies of speech, speech therapist will help. Medical treatment will continue for sometime, with physiotherapy and patient's will power and attendant's support, threes painters shows remarkable recovery.
